There are all sorts of book review blogs on the internet, but some are better than others.
Dovegreyreader was one of the first and is still very well-regarded. I am constantly amazed by the number of books that she works her way through.
My friend Sally Zigmond often reviews books on her blog: she’s a thoughtful, insightful reviewer and can always be relied upon. Our tastes are so similar that I know that if she likes a book then I probably will too: in fact, her opinion is so reliable that I might just as well send her the keys to my Amazon account, and ask her to sort out my reading list in the future.
Tania Hershman, who has featured in my Trios series, runs The Short Review which showcases short story collections.
Smart Bitches, Trashy Books is huge fun, and the reviews are rock-solid; Random Jottings is always worth a look; I know a lot of people who like The Bookbag (but it’s not a site I’ve spent much time on, I’ll admit); and Juxtabook is just great.
There are a few book reviews on this blog, too: most are writing-related.
And here, thanks to Editor Unleashed, is a wonderful post which lists all sorts of wonderful book review blogs, as well as some great tips on how to best behave if you want to get your book reviewed. Brilliant.
Vulpes Libris. Excellent.
Good Reads is growing in popularity: I’ve not spent much time there, but I hear good things about it.
