This is the very first post in our new books blog, where you’ll find me (and occasionally other EW staffers, like Kate Ward, Thom Geier, Jeff Giles, and Ken Tucker) weighing in on new books — fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, YA titles, poetry, and much more. We’ll be reviewing, talking to authors, reporting the latest publishing news, dissecting sales trends, forecasting hits (and misses), looking at books made into movies — you name it, we’ll cover it. We love to read and we’re passionate about books.
