Literary Hub’s Book Marks Is Like Rotten Tomatoes For Books

Book Marks is a new web site that gathers book reviews from critics and readers alike for you to browse all in one place. Books Marks was launched by Literary Hub, a site that’s dedicated to a mix of book news, excerpts and original content and interviews.

Book Marks aims to help book lovers discover new titles and foster lively conversations and communities around these books, kind of like what Goodreads already does.

But Book Marks’ main distinction is that it aggregate reviews from professional critics, like Rotten Tomatoes does for movies and shows. These professional reviews are then distilled into a letter grade (with pluses and minuses). While readers can also chime in with their own thoughts in the comments section, they’re currently not able to offer their own score. Plus, there’s no way of seeing what a fellow Book Marks user is reading, commenting on, or liking/not liking.

If these features are less of a concern for you, Book Marks can be another great way to discover new books that you might dig.
