Check Your Shelf

Get October-Ready With Indigenous Horror, Gothic Horror, and YA Horror

Welcome to Check Your Shelf. I have been steadily reading for the last couple weeks, which is the first time in a LONG time that I’ve been able to say that! Hoping to ride this wave for as long as I can.

Level Up (Library Reads)

Do you take part in Library Reads, the monthly list of best books selected by librarians only? We’ve made it easy for you to find eligible diverse titles to nominate. Kelly Jensen created a database of upcoming diverse books that anyone can edit, and Nora Rawlins of Early Word is doing the same, as well as including information about series, vendors, and publisher buzz.

Catch you on the flipside, everyone.
