Ever started into some interesting fiction and then realized: “Hey, this is a sequel to previous books! I think I might want to read the others first?”

Or, after you finished the first book of a series, you were excited to find and start reading the next in the series, but didn’t know which book came next?

Many times, somewhere inside or on the book’s jacket they’ll list the other titles in the series. But what if it is the first book of a series and doesn’t list the title of the next book, or you can’t find the series list in or on the book? It can sometimes be troublesome, but here’s the easy solution:

The What’s Next™: Books in Series database helps you search series fiction. (They define series as: “two or more books linked by character(s), settings, or other common traits.”) e.g. Sue Grafton’s “A is for Alibi”, “B is for…” etc. or the “Star Wars” series

Once you find the prequel or sequel book(s) you might then search our Library’s Online Catalog to see if we have them, and if they are available to checkout.

…and, if we don’t have them, remember you can also request an Inter-Library Loan.
