At BookTrib, we are constantly searching for the best ways to connect readers with writers, opening their eyes and worlds to fresh ideas! This is how we came across a wonderful group known as the Tall Poppies, who are not only avid readers, but extremely talented writers as well! On a weekly basis, we will be introducing many wonderful books to you straight from the Tall Poppies. Reviews are on their way!

I was shocked—shocked!—to hear that some readers out there haven’t read every single one of the forty-plus Tall Poppies out there. Then I realized, I haven’t read every single one of the forty-plus Tall Poppies out there. But how could I pick who to read next? Um… obviously, a flow chart!
