Websites

Sometimes you just need somewhere to have all your bookish bookmarks outside of your bookmarks bar (I always lose them in there). So I had a thought, why not share them with all the other bookish types? This is how the website collection was born.

I, and guest posters, mostly read Speculative Fiction, Dark Fiction, Classic Literature, YA Fiction, and a bit of Alternative Fiction, therefore a lot of the websites listed reflect that, but I’ve also listed resources for finding the next read, for authors to utilise, and places to buy book related merchandise. If you’d like to submit a website that isn’t listed, please fill out the feedback form at the bottom of the list.
