Bookshelf Stories Lit Mag

literary af

reviews with humor, and a narrative edge.

Bookshelf Stories is written by Lauren Bernadette and her partner and fellow novelist Ian Ross.

As a couple that happens to be comprised of a couple of novelists, Lauren and Ian spend a lot of time talking about books and reading.

The format of their literary magazine? Autobiographical story-reviews that allow them more room to express their take on contemporary and classical books than a traditional review.

Bookshelf Stories is under construction right now. So check back soon. We'll keep the button here, though, because truth be told we're a little lazy.
