Book Reviews?

Other than getting reviews from your favorite The Book Nook posters, what reviews do you usually rely on? A particular newspaper? The library? Amazon? Somewhere else?

I like Amazon's recommends list. I also like the book review page in the
Woman & Home magazine. I love browsing Barnes & Noble when I'm in New York too =)

My husband gets Entertainment Weekly and I always steal it to read the reviews in the BOOKS section. I also browse on Amazon and BN.com a lot just looking for new things. I used to go to the book stores to browse, but my kids don't really let me *think* while in stores at their age ...so I don't do that much any more.

I check out the Amazon reviews and The New York Times bestsellers list. A couple of websites that I go to often to look for forthcoming books are- Fantastic Fiction, Stop, You're Killing Me and Berkley Prime Crime.

I'm not really interestsed in review per se - I'm just interested in an excerpt of the book and whether the person who read the book liked it or not. I don't scroll through everyone's opinion though so that's why I like this board - short and sweet!

Thanks Critterville,

They are really good websites. I also forgot to mention Fictfact. You can enter the series that you follow and it will send you an email to let you know when a new book in the series is being released. I just got an email from them this morning to let me know that Cleo Coyle's coffeehouse mystery series has a new book being published in Nov.I
