2012 in Book Reviews

December 20, 2012

We are getting ready for our holiday break at WLT, wrapping up our year and tying up all the loose ends. As we prepare to go out the door and lock up the office until next year, we want to leave our readers something to peruse at their leisure for the next couple of weeks—something that can be read in short takes, between the celebrations and family gatherings (or perhaps something to help ease the recovery from those celebrations and gatherings). You are invited to meander through our year’s collection of book reviews, including a variety of genres and cultures. See what you’ve missed, discover new books and writers, and make a note of what to pick up at the library or the January book sales.

For a visual journey through this year’s book reviews in WLT, check out the collage below prepared by our assistant digital media editor Kaitlin Hawkins.  Happy holidays and good reading!
