Good Reads- This is a great site to use for finding independent reading books. Let's say a student loves the book The Giver By Lois Lowry. He/she can type it into goodreads search bar and find a huge list of novels suggested based on related themes, authors, issues, etc. This site also provides excellent plot breakdowns, suggested reading levels, popular reading book lists for certain years, reading challenges and more. The reader reviews can help provide insight as to whether or not a student may like a book.
