Welcome to the Bookanistas!

The Bookanistas are a group of writers - in various stages of the publishing process – who have decided to band together and review the special books of our peers.

We primarily focus on Middle Grade and Young Adult books. And we tend to review books that have just come out in the last year or that are coming out in the future.

No negative reviews here! This business is hard enough so we give nothing but love.

Rest assured, we are honest. If we like the book, we give it a special shout out.

We post every Thursday and cover various topics– upcoming ARCs, books we love, diamonds in the rough, classics, and even give cover love.

Come join the Bookanistas! We think books are the new black!


  1. Looking Forward to it!

  3. This looks like a place I want to watch out for. Have any of you worked on beta reads? Do you have others read for you? How do you decide who to read? Do you feel like you get people to buy books that aren't good?

    Nice blog!

  4. Good luck! I always try to be kind in my reviews, since I know how hard writers work! Here's a tip-- somebody write a skateboarding book. Or wrestling. I need both desperately in my library!

  5. Hi! This blog looks great. I am going to start sending out query letters soon, so this group sounds like it might be a good fit for me.
