Welcome…

To The Dusty Jacket! 

A site that reintroduces you to those long-forgotten books that have resided on library shelves or along thrift store aisles for far too long.  Their jackets may be dusty, but the stories they tell are just as vibrant and alive as ever!

We don’t review the latest and greatest, but the “seasoned” stories who are awaiting to be revisited a second or third time or perhaps newly discovered.  We review adult, teen, and tween books and hope that one of the books reviewed will strike your fancy, elicit a contradictory response, or rekindle an old sentiment.  Whatever the emotion, we hope that we reignite your love for reading or begin a fire that has yet to be fanned.

We post two reviews a week (either Tuesday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday):

  • Teen & Tween Tuesday – A juvenile (J) or young adult (YA) fiction or biography
  • Throwback Thursday – A dusty jacket from Classic literature
  • Friday – An adult fiction or biography

So relax, enjoy, and read!  Our hope is that no book will go unread and no jacket will ever become dusty.  If you want more, visit us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/thedustyjacket
