Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's our goal to provide real reviews of the books we read (and we both read a lot of different genres), so that you can be introduced to some new books or authors to add to YOUR TBR (to be read) list. Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let us know what you think.


For your convenience, we use #hashtags in our reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate our site and find books you'll enjoy.

Our review ratings are based on a 5 star (we do use 1/2 stars sometimes) system, and hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - our opinions!  Let us know if you agree or disagree - we want to hear from you.
