Welcome to Feeling My Shelf, a bi-weekly newsletter about books, life, and well, life with books. 

About Me

I'm a Louisiana-bred, L.A.-based creative with a penchant for meet cutes and turning matcha into words. I own a lot of bookmarks, and yes, I do color-code my shelves. If you've ever asked me for a recommendation, thank you for giving me the push I needed to create this little gem. 

Why should you subscribe?

Because you love books! This newsletter exists solely to satisfy my urge to share thoughts about 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.

Note: I only recommend books or products I’ve also read or used and loved. If you buy something through my links, I may earn an affiliate commission, at no added cost to you.
