Anyway, I have 2 requests:
1) Do you know of a site with reliable reviews or even better, a site that compiles multiple reviews for books?
2) know any good RECENT Horror, Sci-fi, adventure books? Stephan king's books is an example of what I like.
Extra request that I came up with as I typed up this post: I also want to get into reading comics (not superheroes unless they are well known for having interesting stories or characters), anything you guys can recommend?

I could read that back of the books, but a lot of the times I like to read a book without here anything about it first, but I have to at least know I like the author or have a recommendation.
I'd say Wikipedia but that usually has lots of spoilers and basically gives away lots of the book (at least from wiki articles I read). Can't you just read the summary in the back of the book? Why not look up books on Amazon and see what readers have said about it?
And I rarely trust user reviews.
I'm just wondering, is the book you're reading a horror book? From what I hear and have read Anne Rice usually just writes homerotic supernatural type stories. As for reccomending sci-fi/horror books, I don't what to tell you since you said you like Stephen Kings writing and i find the bulk of his work pretty awful(excluding The Stand and some entries in The Dark Tower).
It's supposed to be a horror book yes. But my lit professor said that the book has a lot of raunchy stuff in it. Wouldn't surprise me if that was the sole reason she picked it. She's sort of known for picking that stuff.
I just want a site I can visit every once in a while to conveniently check what's good, that's trustworthy (which comes automatically with a compilation of all the main reviewers scores).
But if there is no such thing there isn't much I can do. I'm just making sure there isn't some place I completely missed after Google searching.
