the ask@AAR: Have you seen our new Power Search?

We have a new Power Search. Have you tried it? It’s–in my opinion–amazing. You can find it under the Reviews tab.



For starters, you can now search by tags. Caroline Russomanno has spent the past few years improving the tag system on our reviews and now, you can search by them. You can search by all kinds of things now, including words in the actual reviews themselves. The combinations are endless.

Want to read a book by an author of color (that tag is AoC), that’s a DIK, featuring royalty, and has the word Duke in it? Type in Duke in the top search bar, select DIK, and type in royalty and AoC in tags and select them. Viola! The book that meets your criteria is How to Catch a Queen by Alyssa Cole! If that’s too limiting–and given that not every review is perfectly tagged, it probably is–uncheck royalty. Now there are 16 books for you to choose from although one features a dog named Duke.


Want to see your answers sorted by newest review date? Well, that’s the default. But you can also choose to sort by grade, sensuality, or pub date.



We are calling this the beta edition because we are still working to make it perfect. You can help. Play around with it and let us know what you think about it, what you love, and what you don’t. You can either post in the comments or send me your feedback via a Google form. Thanks!
