Book Riot

We're always interested in hearing about new books, but even with a stable of writers across book blogs we can't get to everything. So if you'd like to tell us about something, shoot us an email. Before sending something for consideration, take a look around the site to get a feel for who we are, who our readers are, and how we go about things. Bonus points will go to submissions that have looked at our contributors and can suggest which contributor might be a good fit for the book.

Crime Fiction Lover

Crime Fiction Lover was set up by two journalists who love reading crime stories ‰ÛÒ everything from atmospheric noir to thriller mysteries and police procedurals. The rise of Kindle, eBooks and iBooks interests us a great deal. We hope to discover and share some of the best reads on these new formats, but by no means will we overlook traditional print. There's nothing like the feel and smell of a freshly printed book.
