2017 Summer Book Trek Reviews

Looking for a good book?

Generating solid reviews is the motivation behind the annual Summer Book Trek Reading Challenge. Word of mouth sharing between similarly minded readers is one of the best ways to find a great read.

Reviews don’t need to be long or eloquent to help readers. They just need to be honest (but polite). If a reviewer tells me what they liked and didn’t like, it helps me make an informed decision. Sometimes I agree with the reviewer, and sometimes the very things they disliked are what attracts me to a book.

These reviews are generated during the annual Summer Book Trek Reading Challenge. (Last year we posted 363 reviews during the Trek!) They are listed alphabetically by book title. Click the links to read the reviews.
