Review List

Titles for Review

Kudzu bookshelf photo.

Here we will feature a short list of review copies we have received that have not been assigned to other readers. Below this list, you will find books we would like to see reviewed but have not yet received a review copy from the publisher. Works more than a few years old will have a year beside them. We are more interested in current titles, though we seek to expose anything still in-print.

Often, we can obtain a review copy for those interested in contributing a review. If you would like to have a title added to this list, please contact us at this email address: editor [at] kudzuhouse [dot] org (replace brackets with appropriate symbol).
