Question: I am looking for a site that will give a legitimate review on books, instead of relying on opinion based reviews on Amazon that could be written by anyone. Anyone know of a few good sites? Thanks.

A book review (or book report) is a form of literary criticism in which a book is analyzed based on content, style, and merit. It is often carried out in periodicals, as school work, or online. Its length may vary from a single paragraph to a substantial essay. Such a review often contains evaluations of the book on the basis of personal taste. Reviewers, in literary periodicals, often use the occasion of a book review for a display of learning or to promulgate their own ideas on the topic of a fiction or non-fiction work. At the other end of the spectrum, some book reviews resemble simple plot summaries. A review is an expression of an opinion. Look at goodreads.com, at least there is no commercial bias.

First just let me say that it's cite, not site. Second, if you mean nonfiction, then you'd put your references in a bibliography. There's i think 2 different formats for you to do this, APA and MLA. I know it works if your writing a paper or essay, not sure about books though. check out this link, i hope it helps http://www.library.cornell.edu/resrch/citmanage

What types of books? Romantic Times has a review site, so does Coffee time Romance, and Urban Reviewers and Raw Sistahs. SorMag is a review site of Inspirational Romance and interracial Romance. Eye on Romance is Paranormal, Gothic and Sci - Fi e-book reviews. Romance Divas also has a review site. Really depends on the genre you are looking for.

www.kidscompass.co.uk - good site for kids reviews and I can vouch for it, I work for them myself! For adult books you can try the major newspapers, they all have pretty good review sections. I also quite like www.lovereading.com, but I find that their reviews tend to a synopsis and not much more. Still, a useful way to find out the basics on a books. Hope that helps!
