Default Good Book Review Sites (looking for recommendations)

Any good ones that people use? I'm kinda thinking along the lines as Rotten Tomatoes & IMDB are to movies. It would be good to have a couple. Like an overall book rating site & maybe a couple geared towards horror fiction & graphic horror novels.

Solid thread. I suggested to B-D that they add a books section, for us readers who don't need pictures.

These are the 2 I use. And I have discovered so many authors from the BD threads.

Just rate a ton of books on amazon and you will get lots of goods recs.

I never really used Goodreads, but I went on and saw my book there with a five star rating, so now I may actually have to join.
