Genre Blender

Use Megan McArdle's creation, Genre Blender, to get great suggestions with two or three genres! 

Genre Blender - genrify.com

"The Blender is a tool meant to help readers find books that include more than one genre. Using the Blender is easy -- simply pick two or three genres you are interested in and click the "BLEND" button. Your results will include any title from the database that has the genres you selected. If you look at the results, you will notice that some genres will appear in ALL CAPS. This means that the genre is very prominent in the blend. Other genres might be listed in lowercase letters. This means that the genre is a part of the book, but not dominant in the story." - Megan McArdle
