If I mention a book’s title in my essay, do I list the book on my Works Cited page or Bibliography?

Here's a definition I found of the two. It does not state what to do in my case. Is just mentioning a book considered citing or not?"Works Cited and Bibliography are not the same. In Works Cited you only list items you have actually cited. In a Bibliography you list all of the material you have consulted in preparing your essay whether or not you have actually cited the work." Thanks:)

    If you said:One of the books John Smith wrote was a The Ultimate Guide to Mouse Raising. Although a minor work, it was the start of his career. Then no, you don’t need to cite it. However, if you wroteIn his book The Ultimate Guide to Mouse Raising, John Smith said you shouldn’t keep cats.Then yes, you would have to cite it because you’re using information from the book.Hope that helps.
