Stuck at home with absolutely nothing to read? Your Belmont librarians are here to help.

First things first, you can always contact us for personalized recommendations! Through our Ask a Librarian service, tell us what you like (genre, author, other book titles) and we’ll respond with a few suggestions that you might enjoy. We can match you with books, movies, TV series, podcasts, and more — just ask! Teens and tweens can fill out this Personalized Recommendations form here.

Check our staff picks book lists for recommendations on popular topics in fiction and nonfiction. Don’t forget to get ideas from our reading recommendations for teens/tweens and book lists for kids, too! The Minuteman Library Network also has recommended reads — if you’re stuck, start with this list of Books You Can’t Put Down.

Need even more ideas? Looking for something in a niche genre or a read-alike for your last favorite read? Explore NoveList to find new authors and titles, using your interests based on mood, genre, or appeal.
