Welcome to Bookshelf Corner


We are Bookshelf Corner, a blog dedicated to all things bookish, writerly, and generally nerdy. On this blog,you will find book reviews, Goodreads challenge updates, and posts about the life and times of writers, with advice/lamenting on lack of time to actually write.
