Books and music, crime and journals get top billing at some fantastic websites.
If you like reading great books and listening to great music, largehearted boy is a must-visit. To quote the website, “largehearted boy is a literature and music website that explores that spot in the Venn diagram where the two arts overlap.” Authors create and discuss a music playlist that correlates to their recently published book. For example, here’s Celeste Ng’s musical selections for her Little Fires Everywhere. Also featured are book reviews, contests and giveaways, daily downloads and more.
Do you enjoy crime thrillers and real crime? Then, check out The Crime Hub. This UK-based site has information-packed interviews with those who work directly in the criminal justice system. Interviews with writers of crime fiction also fill the site. Find audio of short stories in various subgenres of crime fiction. I will be listening to some of these.
Finally, on a totally different note: Do you like to write snail mail letters to pen pals as much as I do? Do you like to journal? Then consider planneramaparty.co. This site overflows with ideas about how to coordinate your offline letter writing and journaling.
So, lovers of books and music, crime and journals, can find nirvana online. For other websites dealing with books of mystery and crime, see my previous blog post here.
