Bookreporter Talks To

Aug 28, 2020

Bookreporter celebrated its 24th anniversary yesterday! To mark the occasion, we invited nine of our longtime reviewers to share their favorite summer books. They each engaged in a lively dialogue with Carol as they talked at length about what they took away from each book. Our reviewers hail from across the country. They are so much of the heart and soul of Bookreporter, and we were excited to introduce them to our readers. Below is a list of the titles that each of them spoke about. * titles are reviewed on Bookreporter.
