Welcome to ReviewsOfBooks.com UK fiction page

While the rest of this site is primarily focused on books as they are released in the US, this page will be solely for fiction books recently released in the UK. The same criteria will be used for selecting reviews of books posted here, at least three professional reviews of a book available from sites requiring neither a fee nor registration must be available.

We've organized the site into a few different sections. There are five principal pages, typically used for browsing through recent additions. Think of these pages like wandering through a bookstore to see what's new. The most recent fiction is added to this page, and as new ones are added, the books from the bottom of this page are moved to Page 2. We also add listings for fiction released in the UK, mysteries and thrillers, and nonfiction. Every book added to these pages also gets an individual page where all the reviews can be found (the principal pages list only the first four). These individual pages also usually have a synopsis for the book and sometimes they also have links for other books by that author. Clicking on the [see all reviews and synopsis] link in any book's listing on a principal page will take you to that book's individual page.

Books that are no longer available on the principal pages still have their individual page available. There are two ways to locate any book we might have on this site. A search box is available in the upper right corner of every page, and entering your search terms into the form will help you find all occurrences of those search terms on this site. In addition, a Site Map link is in the upper left corner of each age. It lists alphabetically by title all the books we have on this site.

Be aware that many of the links we add to reviews on other web sites often go stale as they're either deleted or moved to an archive on those sites. We're constantly testing links to find these dead links, but if you encounter one, or find any type of error on this site, please send a quick e-mail to admin@reviewsofbooks.com.

This site is an amazon associate site. That means that for any items purchased from amazon via links on this site, we receive a small commission of that sale. Your amazon orders placed through this site will help with our continuing support. One quick note about ordering - clicking on the "Buy from amazon.com" button just below a price will add that item directly to your shopping cart at amazon.com.
