bookclique presents one excellent, original book review each week. Our reviewers are teachers, writers, and students  who came together to amplify book culture through this dynamic project. Our one rule is that we only review books that we have thoroughly read, sincerely loved, and want to recommend to others.

bookclique bloggers are not just great readers – they are great writers, too! This month we are especially proud to celebrate the publication of Kings, Queens, and In-Betweens, by one of our own, Tanya Boteju. Tanya’s book is lighting up the reading world!

Below are bookclique’s weekly picks from April 1 to June 26th. Subscribe to bookclique for your weekly book download or follow us on twitter @bkclique and instagram @bookclique for weekly updates!
