Welcome to [tk] reviews

Welcome to [tk] reviews, a new (and, we hope, exciting) venture.

On the first of each month, you’ll discover reviews posted here on the recently published books we find most intriguing, enraging, provocative, and persuasive. It is our aim to represent a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction, produced by an equally wide variety of authors and sources—from academic presses to independent publishers to large trade houses.

Who are we? You can find some information about us and why we started this website at the bottom of this page, but here’s the extended version. We are seven young women working in different departments at a publishing house. We all love books. We all love to talk about books. And that’s why—at a meeting of our imprint’s book club, where we were the only ones who showed up to talk about Cheever—we decided to create a venue where we could discuss literature and our industry.

We hope that as the months pass a sense of our disparate voices, styles, and interests will emerge in our reviews. In the meantime, however—and since we hope [tk] reviews will be a site you’ll want to visit every day—we’d like to invite you to become acquainted with our reviewers through our blog, which will be updated on a daily basis. Each of us will be blogging for a full week, beginning this Monday, about book- and industry-related events. From independent bookstores to favorite reading nooks to author events and festivals, expect to see our passions represented here.

We appreciate your patience as we embark on the first few months of and inevitable bugs to be found in [tk] reviews. Please join us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and suggest new books and events that you think we should be following. Until Monday, happy reading.


Katie, Jess, Carmen, Claire, Joey, Hannah, and Caroline
