Welcome to The Bookshelf Club; your first stop for all things bookish! Be you an avid reader in search of your next page turner or an up and coming author after some publicity and an honest review!
It is, of course, 1st September and we couldn’t open up a bibliophile’s dreamland without mentioning the significance of this day. Harry Potter is without a doubt one of the most important works of fiction to arise from our generation and is in fact what brought the eight bookworms that run The Bookshelf Club together! Most of us met each other in the ‘golden days’ of 2011 Twitter when the Harry Potter fandom was hitting its peak on online social media, and we haven’t looked back since. (Okay, maybe that’s a lie! Maybe we like to reminisce about Twitter circa 2011 and how it was sunshine and rainbows and non-stop Harry Potter feels. But the fandom is still going strong and that’s all that matters.)
The Bookshelf Club will feature reviews from a range of different genres. Whether it be young adult high fantasy or domestic noir, there is sure to be a review here of a book that meets your tastes. We will also be hosting different events like giveaways, blog tours, cover reveals and much more so be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with when the latest events are happening. The Bookshelf Club is open to review requests – from small indie writers to big bestsellers – we are more than happy to review them all should it catch the attention of a member of our team. If you would like us to review your book then please read our review policy and pop us an email.
As this is our very first post, we thought you may like to know a little more about those who run it.
When she isn't taking stunning photographs of the German landscape, riding around on horses, or designing something that has her creative sides tingling, you'll undoubtably see Elizabeth most often filling up our Instagram feed.
Imi is going into her third year at university studying theatre and is proudly planning her third tattoo, all of which are literature quotes of course. She will probably talk about them a lot because having J.K. Rowling, Samantha Shannon and very soon Sarah J. Maas's words on her body is crazy exciting for her.
She has just been chosen to be an advocate for Samantha Shannon's series, The Bone Season and is beyond excited for all of the exclusive content to come (and of course, to share that all with you).
Jess is known to read voraciously and treat books like cherished friends. She reads for the pure pleasure of having new worlds come alive in her mind, to tread in the footsteps of those wise and feared, to embrace and experience new dynamics, new characters, new life experiences. Her passion for literature led her to complete a BA (hons) in English Literature and an MA in Publishing.
Jess is the creator, designer and tech genius behind this website.
Kathryn is going into her third year of university studying English Language and Linguistics and can often be found getting geeky over the English language.
Together, we make The Bookshelf Club – a group of friends whole simply love books too much to ever shut up about them.
