"Read This Next" by Sandra Newman and Howard Mittelmark

We have all had it happen to us. We see a book with a pretty cover, pick it up and flip it over to read the blurb. It sounds great, just the book we want to read. But when we bring the book home and begin to read we find it's nothing like the cover or blurb led us to believe it would be.

Read This Next by Sandra Newman and Howard Mittelmark will prevent this from ever happening to you again (provided you follow their recommendations!) In this book are what they say are 500 of the best books you will ever read, arranged into thematic lists.

The book covers every genre you can think of and ones you may not have known even existed. Each recommendation comes with discussions for book clubs that will make you laugh and think. This book takes reading seriously but does so in smart and funny way.

This is the ultimate book for readers. It includes classics, recent releases and some little-known books. It is pretty much a guarantee that everyone will come away from this book with a much longer to read list.


  1. Sounds like a great reference book for all us book bloggers that struggle with the inevitable question of "What should I read next?" I organize my TBR list that way (by genre & topic) so that if I'm in the mood for a particular type of book, I have lots of options & may read some back-to-back. Thanks for the review :)

  2. This sounds like a great companion to my book journal that contains all sorts of lists of prize winners.

  3. Wow! This would be great for all of us book bloggers!
