One place I've found that has some good book reviews in general is the
ACCU web site at

For the STL in particular, I'd heartily recommend 'The C++ Standard
Library' by Nicolai Josuttis - there's also a tutorial one by the same
author but I haven't seen that.

For patterns, you could start with the GoF 'Design Patterns' by Gamma,
Helm, Johnson and Vlissides and take it from there.

Other than that - the book reviews on the aforementioned site
should give you a good start.

Hope this helps.
