The Latest Booklist: Spotlight on Graphic Novels and Book Discussions

Our July issue of Booklist is now live and we couldn’t be more excited for the annual Spotlight on Graphic Novels. We have top 10 lists for the year’s best in graphic novels and graphic novels for youth. Heather Booth surveys the audiobook field to find the most striking adaptations of the visual format on audio. Booklist contributor Terry Hong talks with prolific translator Edward Gauvin about his work with graphic novels all over world. And Annie Bostrom combs through the graphic novel vaults to offer a subscriber-exclusive Core Collection on just the right graphic novel for your next book group.

Speaking of book groups, the July issue features a Spotlight on Book Discussions, too, where you’ll find a dynamic top 10 fiction and nonfiction titles to get you (and your book club) started. Books for Youth associate editor Ronny Khuri presents recent YA titles that recontextualize some of the classics. And finally, the Adult Books editorial staff has delved into the criminal underworld of true crime literature with their own subscriber-exclusive Core Collection of both fiction and nonfiction book group selections.
