Top Book Review Blogs, Websites & Newsletters To Follow inNo list of book-related sites can hope to be exhaustive, though a few have become institutions and even boast their own original writing. Founded in as a quarterly print magazine, Electric Literature has gone on to become one of the most savvy and invigorating websites concerned with writing—or, in all honesty, best websites period. Besides all manner of news and essays, the editors maintain Recommended Reading , a forum for original fiction chosen and introduced by their huge network of writers. Whether personal essay, investigative reporting, or criticism, the distinguished list of contributors—which includes Soraya Roberts and Sarah Gerard to name just two luminaries of nonfiction—make for much more than a publishing news site, they make for a magazine as incisive and hard-hitting as anything on the news rack. Combining politics with nonfiction and photography, Guernica is another fully-fledged magazine that happens to publish online.

I have been going through a mini crime phase in my reading across different genres recently, namely non-fiction, crime fiction and historical fiction. Here are three books I have enjoyed over the last few weeks:. The majority of these deal with murders, but also include espionage and treason, and as the subtitle of the book promises, Grant shows how the trials defined modern Britain, particularly where attitudes towards social change are concerned. The earlier chapters tend to involve cases which have largely been forgotten such as the Camden Town murder trial in shortly after the court opened, while those in the second half of the century mostly remain notorious such as those involving John Christie, Ruth Ellis and Jeremy Thorpe. While some chapters are a tad overlong due to the considerable amount of detail, each case is outlined in a gripping narrative, capturing the essence of courtroom drama. Grant, a practising barrister, shines a light on the tactics involved and how and why the trials had the outcomes that they did.
While books will always be my go-to when it comes to my reading material of choice, I also love spending a lazy Saturday morning in bed with the sun streaming through my window and copious cups of tea catching up on the latest posts from some of my favourite book bloggers. And while back in the infancy of book blogging, when most online spaces for book lovers were unsophisticated at best, and downright dreary at worst, these days some of my go-to book bloggers are the proud owners of some seriously sophisticated sites. A great source of fiction book reviews, Kath is a Filipina living in Germany with her husband, and covers books by everyone from J K Rowling to John Green — from romance books to mystery books and many more besides. With book reviews in both English and Dutch, Netherlands-based Femke reads all things YA, offers readers an intimate insight into her love of books and is one of my favourite book review blogs. She too has a lovely Bookstagram account, that features flowers, fairy lights and the all important cup of tea alongside her current book of choice. Faroukh too has been a great supporter of my book blog, and was also kind enough to share with me his Desert island Books picks which will give you book recommendations a-plenty.
