About This Blog
BookShelfery is formerly known as The Bawdy Book Blog, and was started in January 2011 by Jennifer, who was unemployed and needed something productive to do when not applying for jobs. April at My Shelf Confessions came up with the idea of blogging about books, something Jennifer had never heard of, and they decided to begin an adventure together (albeit separately, since they have different tastes). As BookShelfery has grown, Jessica has joined as co-blogger! BookShelfery features a wide variety of books, but preferences lean toward the YA Lit variety. Please check out our review policy page for more details. To contact us directly, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet the Bloggers
Jennifer remembers wanting to learn how to read as early as kindergarten and picking up her first chapter book (Sweet Valley High: Lila’s Story) that sparked an interest in reading when she was just 8-years-old. As a teenager and young adult, she began sifting through her stepfather’s bookshelves, where she found science-fiction/fantasy works by author Piers Anthony. Now she enjoys a wide variety of genres, but claims her favorites are Young Adult, Dystopian, Contemporary Fiction and Urban Fantasy. Her favorite authors are David Eddings and Karen Marie Moning, and she began waiting for her Hogwarts acceptance letter at the tender age of 33.
She’s also seen every Star Trek: TNG episode ever made.
Jessica is a self-proclaimed nerd, and her addiction to books began at age 4, going on weekly trips to the library with her mom. As she got older, her favorites included The Baby-Sitters Club and Sweet Valley High, but then she discovered the thrill of reading a book that made her want to leave the light on and check under the bed. She soon graduated to Dean Koontz and Stephen King, and Mr. King is still her hands-down, all-time favorite author. She loves to read just about anything (and will RE-read her favorites countless times), but she especially enjoys thrillers, mysteries, and dystopian. Her other hobbies include movies, theater, and photography.
