Here is the first of our book site reviews. First on the list is www.teenreads.com, a member of the bookreporter.com network.
Teenreads.com is run with all you YA book lovers out there in mind. The site is chock full of all sorts of goodies, including reviews, author interviews, and contests. Look out for these special goodies:

Word of Mouth: Share what books you’ve been reading and get automatically entered into a monthly giveaway. Also allows you to see what you’re peers thing is the latest and greatest. (I’ve found some great books this way)
Manga Reviews: For those of you who are addicted to all things Japanese, here’s the place you don’t want to miss.

There’s tons of other stuff that I didn’t even mention, so make sure you take the time to look around a bit. Overall, a great book site, although not the absolute best I’ve ever seen. Definitely worth taking the time to browse. The best thing you can do is subscribe to their newsletter, it will keep you informed of updates to the site, which happen only about once a month (or so).
