Trying to choose between Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James and Strange Flesh: A Novel by Michael Olson? Well according to a new book reviews website iDreamBooks Fifty Shades gets a 30 ranking, and Strange Flesh gets an 80 ranking, which could help make the decision for you. iDreamBooks Applies Rotten Tomatoes Model to Book Reviews

The new website aggregates professional book reviews from around the web and makes recommendations on books to read based on these reviews. It works like Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic and will recommend a book if 70 percent of critics give it a positive rating.

Rahul Simha, co-founder of idreambooks.com told AppNewser: “I am a big fan of Rotten Tomatoes and I use it all the time to decide on a movie. When it comes to books, I like to read non-fiction and I have always wanted something like Rotten Tomatoes for books. I couldn’t find one on the internet for the longest time. When I talked about this idea with my friends, they liked it too. So we decided to develop it.”
