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!

Many years ago, Jessica took an English teaching job at Collegiate School in New York. She replaced an English teacher named Laura Dickerman. At first, theirs was a rivalry, but not too long after that, they became the best of friends. Jessica created bookclique in 2018 and recruited as many of her English teaching friends; students; and writers as she could to the collaborative project of promoting new books to the world. Laura is now the editor of bookclique, bringing all of her customary brilliance and energy to the shared work of celebrating books and book culture.
