More than the story of the books I read, I love knowing more about them and their authors. I’ve been looking for book-related sites in the past years, and I have these 5 that resonated with me.
TOR Books is the place is to be for science fiction and fantasy lovers. I am a subscriber of Tor Books’ newsletter for quite a while now and I’m liking their content a lot. They talk about the stories behind books, explore magic systems and worlds, and features authors from SFF. They also give free books and samplers once in a while. For me, Tor Books is like your cozy tavern. It feels familiar, the hearth is warm, and there are a lot of stories to tell.
If Tor’s a tavern, then Goodreads is your university campus. With Goodreads, you’ll be able to follow authors, join groups with fellow book lovers, rate your favorite books, and track your reading list. I use Goodreads for tracking my reads. You can conveniently tag them as your current read, read, and to read. It also has a yearly reading challenge if you want to read more books.
Looking for books on sale? Bookbub sends a daily e-mail with a list of book deals curated to your liking. These deals are linked to major online book retailers like Amazon and Kobo. There are decent deals with at least 70% off. My recent find from a Bookbub was a book I’ve been wanting to read for a long time, Gideon the Ninth.
Book Riot offers the latest news on books, giveaways and book deals. What I love about Book Riot is that you’ll be able to select the newsletter that will appear in your inbox. I’m subscribed to their Swords and Spaceships and Book Deals newsletters.
Epic Reads is geared toward the YA genre. Like Book Riot, it also has latest news on YA titles and also book deals.
