The Page of Reason: Choosing Right Fiction Books for You

Many people seem to struggle to find the right book for them, especially when it comes to fiction. Although there are many different genres of fiction books and options given to you, it is not easy to determine which one is the best fit for you. Here are some ways for you to find your next dream book!

First of all, you may want to figure out the type of fiction book you like based on your interests. For example, you may find yourself enjoying history, fantasy, contemporary, or even mystery fiction books. Once you know the genre that you adore, you can browse the books by genre through platforms such as RIDI Books. An easy way to do this is to find the last book you liked and search through bestsellers of the same genre.

 You can also choose fiction books by difficulty. The fastest and the most accurate way to determine your level is known to be through a Lexile test. After getting your Lexile score through a simple online test, you can get book recommendations based on it. However, in order to figure out if a book is really for you, try reading the first few pages to see if you understand the terms and sentence structures in it. For example, author of The Hunger Games series, Suzanne Collins, wrote most of her sentences in simple forms, such as ellipsis and sentence fragments, to guide readers’ comprehension.

Goodreads is a review site that catalogues books. Through this site, you can search lists of related books or read the personal reviews of the books that you are interested in. You can even upload your own reviews about the books after reading it! These tools will definitely help your journey as a reader and advance your reading opportunities.
