Truthfully, if one were to write a full and comprehensive list of all the best book review sites on the internet, one would end up writing a very long post indeed. What follows is a list of some of the sites that provide the best book reviews, book information, and other literary tidbits.
Greg is an aspiring author who says that his book review blog is a way to put off writing a novel. That’s sort of a Catch 22 – because if you read his blog you realize what a good writer he is you want to start reading it, but you’d also want to read that novel, so you’d have to choose. Greg reviews a lot of contemporary literature, but dips into other genres as well.
>>The New Dork Review of Books – thenewdorkreviewofbooks.blogspot.com
Stefanie is going to be a librarian. She writes this amazing blog, wherein she incorporates reviews of contemporary lit, thoughts about classics, information and reflections about library science, and so much more. It’s a completely lovely book review site.

>>The Contemporary Reader – thecontemporaryreader.blogspot.com
A group of 8 bloggers write for this site, which was started by Shane Richmond in 2006 on his other site. He set out to read 26 books in a year, and the project bloomed into the robust and awesome thing that it is today. The site is very well organized, and you know it’s a good sign when the book review of the day is a Fitzgerald book.

Going strong since 2002, this site is a great resource for book reviews, book news, interviews with authors, and so much more.
