Welcome to Feeling My Shelf, a bi-weekly newsletter about books, life, and well, life with books. Here’s everything you need to know about this little corner of the internet.

Why should you subscribe?

Because you love books! This newsletter exists solely to satisfy my urge to share musings on what I read with someone other than my mother. She loves me, but listening to me recap the entire plot of a psychological thriller? She loves not.

If, like me, you can devour a 300-page book in a few hours, this is the newsletter for you. On the flip side, if you only read one book every three years, this newsletter is also for you. Consider this a safe space, free of (most) judgment, where bookworms and bookish friends of all reading frequencies can come together.

If you've ever asked me for a recommendation, thank you for giving me the push I needed to create this little gem. 

What can you expect?

Reading recs, reviews, musings on bookish topics, and more! Each chapter also always includes links of cool reads from around the web and ideas for things to watch and do when you feel like taking a break from the books.
