In last Friday’s Study Skills Club we looked at the website Fantastic Fiction. This site allows you to search a book title, to find out what other books are by the same author, what other books may be in the genre, and more. If you search for an author, you get a biography, details of the author’s books, and what’s yet to be published. You can also see how many new books came out this month and what’s about to be published. It’s a must-visit site for readers of all types, so you know everything you can about your favourite books and authors but so you also know what other books you might enjoy. Give it a try!
