Welcome to Crossing the Pond Reviews!

Book Reviews that span genres as well as the Big Pond

East meets West in this intercontinental blog about our treasured pastime: reading and writing reviews about some outstanding (and a few not so stellar) books and audiobooks.

Stefan and Lau will be adding their European touch. Susan will provide North American and Western exposure. Together they unite across the pond that is the Atlantic Ocean to bring you their unbiased reviews.

Find out more about who we are.

Reading is an exercise in empathy; an exercise in walking in someone else’s shoes for a while.

Malorie Blackman

The Crew, my Sadir S. Samir
