I was wondering if there is a website, book, etc. that gives you suggestions based on skill or level.

Thank you

There are a couple of places you can search for music at a similar level to what you play. Keep in mind however that grading of pieces is subjective and you may find one grade 4. for instance, easier than another grade 4. In addition, the ratings are not consistent between the different website: Henle  would usually have a much lower rating for the same piece than you would find on pianosyllabus.com

Another  alternative is to look for some of the graded  repertoire books published by organizations such as RCM

If you didn't mind spending a bit of money this is a great book; Pianists Guide to Standard Teaching and Performance Literature

Nah. I got it from some website. So far the pieces mentioned in the attachment properly refers to the correct grade level, so it has been helpful for me to choose pieces according to the grade level that I want.
