Finding diverse and #OwnVoices titles
Readers long to see themselves reflected in the stories they read. However, it can be a challenge for a reader to find books that reflect their lived experience if they are a member of a group that’s historically underrepresented in published fiction.

New theme in NoveList: Wartime Crime
The mystery genre is massive. For all that we don’t want crime to affect us personally, it sure is fun to read about! And mystery writers help keep that passion alive in many ways. So how can this vast number of books be navigated? At NoveList, we offer an array of mystery genres – from Cozy mysteries where the crime stays behind closed doors, to Fantasy mysteries that take place in other worlds entirely, to Police procedurals that focus on the minutiae of the investigation.
