Book Reviews

This is a master list of reviews posted by The Artist Librarian, sorted by title. To search by author or series name, press "Ctrl" + "F" on your keyboard (Command + "F" on a Mac). Then, type in the search bar that pops up.


An asterisk * indicates a comic book/graphic novel.

Book review posts are tagged/labeled with age designators: Books - Juvenile, Books - Teen/YA, and/or Books - Adult.  They can be used singularly or in a combination.  For example, all ages appropriate material will have all three tags or books that are YA/Adult crossovers (that is, published for either the YA or Adult market but can be enjoyed by both) will be tagged with both, etc.  You can access these tabs from the right sidebar.

Likewise, genres are tagged in a similar manner, along with Books - Christian/Inspirational or Books - General Market.
