Our Shared Shelf

This is the landing page for all the reviews and such related to the Goodreads book club that I’ve joined, called Our Shared Shelf. I joined the group in December 2017, as a fan of Emma Watson and her mission to read more feminist and equality positive novels. I haven’t followed along with their monthly reads, but I have stayed in the group so that I may keep what is being read on my radar, so that at some point, I can diversify my reading with Our Shared Shelf suggestions.


Listed below are the book picks for Our Shared Shelf.
