Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Booklist, 11/1/08
“Hammond and Heltzel offer their unique take on the genre…address[ing] issues that will appeal to women readers of any age, background, or frame of mind…Succinct, honest, and cannily in-tune, the Book Babes entertainingly deliver sure bets for good reads.”
 
Library Journal Xpress Review, 10/22/08
“Will appeal to bluestockings of every ilk. The authors’ bibliophilia is infectious, and all readers will benefit from their expert advice.” 
 
St. Petersburg Times, 10/19/08
“Has appeal beyond the chick-lit set…A smart, reader-friendly compilation.”
 
Bookmarks, 12/08
“We’re long-time fans of Hammond and Heltzel…Now they’ve poured their considerable knowledge into one book…It’s a smart, funny overview of contemporary literature—take a look."
 
Seattle Times, 11/7
“Move over, Nancy Pearl, for Book Babes' faves…These ladies are no slouches in the literary department…[they] are quite serious about the books…A lively mix of works, guaranteed to keep you up reading way past your bedtime.”
 
Irene Levine, Huffington Post, 11/4/08
“Should be a reference book on every woman’s bookshelf.”
 
Elle magazine, 12/08
“A nifty catalog of some 600 fiction and nonfiction titles…irresistibly grouped.”
 
Willamette Week, 11/5/08
“You really should read: Between the Covers…Inventive, genre-defying lists.”
 
Shelf Awareness, November 2008
“Authors [have] witty and intelligent criteria…Part of the fun in Between the Covers is their exuberance; part is in discovering the unexpected.”

Deseret News
, 11/23/08
“Don’t be fooled by the clever title. The volume is really a compilation of book recommendations on topics of interest to women—and it’s not a guide to romance novels.”
 
Better TV, November 2008
“Book club members, we have found your bible.”

Internet Review of Books, Holiday 2008 Issue
“Wise and witty flash-reviews of more than 400 books, both recent and classic…This book is not only a wonderful resource for the reading woman—a place to go to when wondering, ‘What shall I read next?’—but also a satisfying read in its own right. I plan to send one to every reading woman on my Christmas list.”
 
AthenasBookshelf.com
“Hammond and Heltzel are two smart, well-read chicks who offer up the altar of the great read stacked to the celestial ceiling with memoirs and fiction for all sensibilities…a wonderful gift for book lovers for Christmas.”
 
Chicago Magazine, 12/08
“A new chick-lit reference tome.”
 
Minneapolis Star Tribune, 12/9/08
“Contains a plethora of suggestions…The next time you're in that odd state of not knowing what to read next, check out this book…A useful, quick guide…Recommendations are written with so much verve and personality that you get a feel for each title…You'll trust their opinions and wish they'd show up at your next book club meeting, maybe with a nice bottle of wine. They'd be knowledgeable, and they'd be fun.”
 
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/6/08
“Wittily thought out.”

Bookworm
"If you have a voracious reader on your gift list...make the choice easier by giving Between the Covers...This book is filled with good suggestions for reading enjoymnet, but also suggestions for gift-giving. Hint, hint."
 
Constant Reader, 11/27/08
"We kind of like books of lists about books, and that's--sort of--what this is...This is avaluable collection of snippets about reading."

Tampa Record
, 11/27/08
"A unique collection."
 
New York Villager, 1/21/09
“enthusiastic and fun”
 
SRQ, 1/09
“Don’t be fooled by the Babes’ playful come-on…[the book] has more intellectual heft than the chick-lit title suggests…[The Book Babes] make candid and genial hosts.”
 
York Sunday News, 4/3/11
“The sections are broken down very well, and explores every aspect of womanhood, including body, mind, career, family, life, death, explorations, culture and history…This is definitely a book to pick up.”
