Question Searchable Metadata?

I currently have a Nook HD+ that I have to do factory resets on with increasing frequency. I'm thinking of replacing it.

I have a pretty large ebook library that I manage with Calibre and sideload to the Nook. My biggest complaint is that the Nook ignores the metadata.

Are there any ereaders out there that will allow me to search my library on the reader using the tags/keywords in the metadata? Or even - pie in the sky - search blurbs for strings of keywords? I keep my entire unread library loaded on the Nook, and if I'm in the mood for a particular theme or trope it can be daunting to find what I'm looking for without any kind of real search function.

If there's nothing that offers a metadata search, just displaying the blurb while browsing without opening the book would be helpful.

Any suggestions?

I think but not sure that Kobo may be what you are looking for.
I don't think Kindle will do that.

Kobo doesn't do exactly what you want, but it can do some of it. With a Kobo you can choose to view the synopsis without opening the book, and you can set up Calibre to create collections based on tags (or a custom column).
