Before you start your search it would help if you can identify everything you remember about the book, plot, character names, time period in which the book may have been published, genre, etc. All these can help in identifying the title and author of the book.

There are some resources online that can help with a search for a fictional work if all you have is a plot line. Also sometimes the best way to find these half remembered books is to post them on a listserv or discussion forum whereby someone who may have read the book recognizes the plot line.

  • The Fiction_L Listserv "has come up with answers to numerous fiction and non-fiction 'stumpers' much to the delight of many patrons, as well as librarians, happy to find the title of a book they read 20 years ago (or just a couple months ago)." 
  • The Project Wombat listserv is "an e-mail discussion list for difficult reference questions." Project Wombat is read by librarians, scholars, students, professionals, and people from all walks of life, so by posting your question to the listserv you are drawing upon the collective memories and resources of thousands of people.
  • You can also submit your question to a service offered by Abebooks known as "BookSleuth"
  • Loganberry Books offer a fee-based ($2) research service known as "Stump the Bookseller" for people who can recall only plot details of a book for which they are seeking. Loganberry is used mostly for children's books that you vaguely remember.
  • The Other Change of Hobbit bookstore in Berkeley, California maintains a "Department of Lost Stories" web page from which you can email the store's staff the book's plot and they will try to locate the book for you.
  • Whatsthatbook.com has sections for Children's Books, Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Science Fiction & Fantasy for you to browse or you can post your own question.
  • The Internet Book Database of Fiction has an "Ask the Oracle" section "where you can post requests to help you identify books you read or saw a long time ago, and can no longer recall."
  • Barnes & Noble has a "Lost Books" discussion board.

So well remembered ..., Digital ID 496171, New York Public LibrarySo well remembered ..., Digital ID 496171, New York Public LibraryHere are some subscription databases that you may be able to use to help you locate a book for which you remember only the plot. They allow you to conduct keyword searches for plot descriptions, and often allow you to search by genre and audience.

I AM LOOKING FOR THIS BOOK DOES IT RING A BELL WITH ANYONE?????? ~~~~~The book about an American stockbroker and radio show host and Swiss or Swedish scientist (that can make bombs). The scientist his daughter get kidnapped, political intrigue with Arab counties. It was written maybe 15 or 20 years ago maybe 1990ish? Plot reads very similar to the banking shenanigans of today.......except that some one kidnapped a Swiss scientist and are forcing him to make a bomb or they will kill his daughter. They are after all the .....can you guess... the OIL. The ex-stockbroker narrates the story, he says he sold everything and bought land, says nothing else will be worth anything except land cuz you need to grow food..... the story ends with the bomb maker making the bomb with cobalt instead of manganese because cobalt has a 25 or 50 year shelf life. No one will be able to go into the oil fields for 50 years because of the afterlife of the bomb.... ~~~~~~~~

I red this book so long ago and forgot about it. Now I want to read it again but I only remember so much of it. Like that the main character is a cat with the only Mber eyes in his family, he runs away over a big wall. He learns mysterious powers and uses them. Theres a cat gang forcing all other cats into submission and it's led by I think a one eyed cat that's white with a blue eye, had the same powers as the other and everyone's afraid of her. There's also a cat I think is named holly that's a cat with mustered colored eyes and later one of her eyes become blue at the end. There's also a dog, a second cat that is brown and falls into a trap. then there's two Siamese cats that are great fighters. Later the main character returns home only to find out his family has been taken over by his brother so he has to beat him. They also learn that the man in the house with the two black(?) cats are robot cats and the man captures cats to use them to make more and that's the trap the other fell in. So yeah. Oh and they at some point go down into the sewers looking for the paradise or something guarded by the pack of dogs that's the family of the dog the main Charcter befriends. Etc.. I think the main characters name starts with a V. Please help if you know ehat I am talking about.

Looking for a website

I have forgotten the site for people who forget stories... There was a site I came across a few months ago that was specifically to help people who vaguely remember the plot of science fiction and fantasy stories. People would post the plot they remembered and anyone who knew could tell them the author and the name of the story. It seemed like a pretty effective method, but for some reason I can't find the site again. I've looked... Can anyone help me?

As the boy grew up he grew more and more knowledgeable that they werent his real parents. he goes on a quest through the forest filled with monsters and finds his real father. His father then leaves only to regret. then the boy finds his father again and the stay together. Anyone have an idea on what this book is?

Help!!!

I'm trying to find a children's book about pregnancy that I had when I was little. I don't remember the title or author, but I know I would recognize the pictures. It talks about how and why mommy's tummy is getting bigger and shows drawings of the fetus in different stages. It also mentions how daddy takes care of mommy, lending her some of his shirts when she gets too big for her clothes and kissing her tummy.

Your question reminds me of

Your question reminds me of "Where Did I Come From" book about facts of life, more or less. Has some rather graphic drawings, but honest... none of the Birds n Bees stuff. However it sort of explains the basics, as I recall, "If you put your parents in the bath tub together [you'll see they aren't the same]", and I don't remember if it mentions pregnancy. Yours could be a follow up to this one. I kind of remember something called "How Did I Get Here?" Worth a peek on Amazon. Good Luck.

Looking for a book

I am looking for a book a read 13 years ago. its about a girl who comes to a small town from the city looking for her friends murderer. she falls in love with the murderers younger brother. she get killed by the older brother at the end. The younger brother is reserved and shy while the murderer/older brother is a former jock who goes onto the city to kill but has a squeeky clean image in the small town. I think she gets killed by a river or dam in a secluded part of the town.

Lookig for romance book can't remember title or author

The book is set in historical times in castle. The women in the book is betrothed to her neighbor or friend. But another man wants to claim her and shows up and for some reason she has to hide her brother and the stepmother tells him where she hid him. Then the bad man forces the woman to watch him rape a girl so she will tell him where the child is this is before step mom tells him. He wants control her and wants all she has. Her betrothed shows up and saves her right before she is forced to marry the bad man. Does anyone know what this book is called? I read it several years ago but can't remember name or author.

Looking for a short stories collection (horror/suspense)

The book was a compilation of really creepy suspenseful short stories. The very first story for which the book was named was about a brother and sister (about 10 or 11 years old) that notice an attic window from the outside of their house that doesn't exist from the inside. When the brother props the sister up on his shoulders from a ladder to look through the window, she opens it to get a better look, but is pulled through completely by an unexplainable force and vanishes. He frantically checks, but the same window still doesn't exist from within the house. When he finally tells their mother what happened, she insists he NEVER had a sister. The cover is black with a red window on it (I think). I know it was very popular at the time (00's), because every time I was able to take it out, I had to give it back in 7 days for the next person on the waiting list ...& then re-join the wait list. I believe either/both the author's name and the title started with an "S". PLEASE HELP. Thanks

I read this book probably 10+years ago (I would of been 10 or so). It was about a bunch of characters who slowly started disappearing or dying. You find out in the end that the reason they are disappearing is the reader is dying and they live in her memories.

I am looking for a book from my childhood...

The book had a pale tan cover with the silhouette of a tree on the front. It was about a girl named Bird, whose mother was very ill. The only way to save her, she discovered, was to get the fruit from a magical tree in a magical garden. She was alone, and was taken in by an old man (possibly a wizard?) he also took in other kids and they did all the chores. She fell in love with one of the boys that he took in, (name started with S, possibly Sto) and i remember at one point she was captured, i am unsure by who, and also the trees fruit was only able to be used if your desire was unselfish, or not for yourself. I am unsure of the details of that. it was a fantasy book and it was something I read when I was 10. I can't remember the title for the life of me

Young Adult Fiction, Fantasy, 40+ years old

The story was about a teenage boy, awkward and a misfit who comes across a mysterious man. This man gives the boy an oddly shaped bottle containing a magic lotion and instructs him to apply one drop on each shoulder. When the boy does, he grows wings. The rest of this tale is about how he learns to fly, gains confidence and grows up over the course of his summer vacation. The bottle eventually runs out but our young hero has come into his own by this time. I believe he had a single mom and probably a subplot involving a girl although I can't be positive. Any information regarding this novel would be greatly appreciated.

The hero is a senior police detective and they are hunting a serial killer. He has four sisters and remembers their stockings drying on the shower rod.

Find A Book

I don't remember much of this book, which is why I'd like to read it again. The main character is a girl who is probably in her 20s? It was based during the time where ladies tried to marry someone rich, and this girl refused all the men who proposed to her. She had finally given in to society and went to find an eligible husband, but with her reputation, no body wanted to wed her. She decided to go to this guy who also had a bad reputation, and they decided that she would live with him a month? To see how compatible they would be. She would marry him for his money, and he would marry her for his reputation (I believe). During that month, he would seduce her every night, training her body to obey his words and only finish when he says its okay. After that month she found that he had not killed his wife, but she slipped and fell down the stairs while they were fighting about the child she was carrying, as it turned out it wasn't his, but someone else's. Afterwards, they ended up falling in love and getting wed, and having two children in the end.

Finding A Book

I remeber the book was about angels and i bought it on amazon for free. The girl lived in an isolated country house. She meets this guy that she falls in love with but he soon becomes one of the bad angels.

So they start fighting on the cliff while hes trying to kill her. It was the first book and the second book was supposed to come out in I think it was Febuary of 2015 Please help if anybody can.

Find this book

I read this book a few years ago and the only thing I can remember it the cover and the plot. It showed a womans in a red silk dress with her back to us and a man on her side facing us and his hand rested on her back. Okay, so basically this woman's best friend is engaged to the main guy and then breaks of the engagement and then the main female character goes to his house to comfort him and brings peach schnapps too. Long story short they start having sex. Oh, and the woman owns a clothing shop.

know this book?

I read this book when i was about 14. It was my first romance novel and i'd love to read it again and reminisce. The cover had this red haired heroine dressed in a white top(like maybe a gypsies) and a green dress with her head thrown back. The hero is dark haired and behind her with his face to her bosom. Dont remember much of the plot... He is spanish and he stole her from her father or sth and is keeping her against her will in a prostitute house. They fall for each other eventually and he marries her at but they get separated and he gets imprisoned but she thinks he's dead. I Think her name starts with a G.

Looking for a Fantasy series

I read the first book of a fantasy series as a teen at a public library and have been looking for it again ever since. What I remember about it is that the main character is a young boy and is fooling around with his girlfriend and wakes up to find her dead. He has a demon inside of him or is cursed or something and assumes he killed her so he runs away. He is picked up by a girl and her folks and thinks he is safe but they sell him as a sex slave to a king or prince who had grey eyes. The boy has a tattoo on his back. I don't remember if it is a vulture or a hawk but it is a large bird. The king sees it and calls him his sparrow. He is trained as a sex slave and plots his escape but one night an assassin breaks in to kill the king and the boy kills him instead of escaping. When he is older the king reluctantly lets him go. There is also an angel in the series that is either watching over the boy or trying to keep the demon from getting free, I don't remember which. But something happens and he is cast down to earth without his powers. He is taken by slavers and was supposed to be castrated but got missed somehow. A fellow slave who is chained to him is ordered to clean him up and realizes he wasn't cut. They end up being sold into the same household and later he gets his powers back and takes her away. That's all I remember. Would love to reread it and others in the series. All my attempts to find it have failed for years including asking the librarian at the library where I borrowed it originally. Please email me if you know this novel. It would have been in the early 80's when I read it and it was a worn out paperback then.

She was then forced to leave her private school to go to the public school on their side of the fence. She went to the school and met him. She told herself not to like him but it didn't matter. they fell for each other and would meet at the barn on the line between their two halves of the town until their families found out.

Looking for a book... Any ideas???

I remember reading this science fiction book when I was a teenager in the mid '90's that was the first in a series. It started off with a large group of people in a space ship that gets boarded by by pirates repeatedly. It is written specifically from the main character's POV who, in the very beginning of the book, is a young boy. The women wind up getting kidnapped and the men tied up and left to watch helplessly as they are taken. The boy grows up to become a fighter and eventually a captain (I think...) of his own space ship. He develops the unusual talent of being able to read people's body language down to the smallest movement. There are action adventures scenes as well as sex scenes. Any ideas??? Thanks!!!

I read this book about 20

I read this book about 20 years ago. It was a thin paperback book. Something about an opera singer who used young girls( their glands and throats) to remain young and the detective looking for a girl that was missing. There was a ghost with their throat torn out. Not much, but all I can remember.

REALLY NEED TO FIND BOOK

Im trying to look for a book. ive only read a couple chapters in, I never finished it. But now i cant remeber anything about the book except for a little bit of the plot and the cover art. The cover art had an empty picture frame in front of a grass field and blue skies. noone was holding the frame it was just there. there wasnt a person or anything on the cover except for what i described. what i read about the story so far was that the main character was a male photographer and he was in love with somebody. the book was fiction novel. it also talked about his life.

Can't find the book

I read a book.I can't remember much because it was a long time ago but I remember on the cover the book name had the word 'caught' . The main character female name was abbie and I think the main male character name was rolf .

I'm looking for a book with a GIRL and a BIG MOTH on cover (it was a bit creepy). Written in CYRILLIC alphabet (I don't know which language, I couldn't understand it). It is probably composed of HORROR/DARK STORIES and there are many great ILLUSTRATIONS by VARIOUS DIFFERENT ARTISTS (some of them digital). I remember one very emotional illustration from the beginning of the book: a dog looking towards dark door.

Novel Cover..Please Help!

For years I have been looking for a Novel cover. On it was a filed of defeated knights, some still alive but agonizing, with spears and blades through their body. only Two knights/soldiers standing, one in completely black armor holding a woman by the hair and the other standing still with arows through his body like it was nothing. Lots of blood. It was something I remember seeing since being a kid, 15years ago and since I've been searching for it. The knight in black had an Axe, and the other a blade with lots blood dripping. It was very gore. Anyone have any clue? Please

need to find book left on ship on my cruise

The book was about a pregnant widow who was taken to a cabin owned by a famous painter after her car went into a ditch. She had the baby, the rich painter married her and then took her to his home city?? His parents accepted her but the story plot was about the former husband's family trying to get the baby. The title had Christmas in it and the cover had a white background. Can you help me find the title of the book - I think the author was one of the popular women writers but can't recall which one.
