where our team of writers love to talk all things books, sharing reviews, features, lists, interviews and more.

Getting lost in a book is escapism at it's finest and it's what everyone who contributes here thrives on.



314 pages of cuteness, 14 different popular YA authors tell stories about couple's first meeting. At times romantic and witty, epic and every day, and heartbreaking and real - every romance has to start somewhere.

Readers will experience Nina LaCour's beautifully written piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard's glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, Nicola Yoon's imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups, Katie Cotugno's story of two teens hiding out from the police at a house party, and Huntley Fitzpatrick's charming love story that begins over iced teas at a diner. There’s futuristic flirting from Kass Morgan and Katharine McGee, a riveting transgender heroine from Meredith Russo, a subway missed connection moment from Jocelyn Davies, and a girl determined to get out of her small town from Ibi Zoboi. Jennifer Armentrout writes a sweet story about finding love from a missing library book, Emery Lord has a heartwarming and funny tale of two girls stuck in an airport, Dhonielle Clayton takes a thoughtful, speculate approach to pre-destined love, and Julie Murphy dreams up a fun twist on reality dating show contestants.

If you'd like to join us and read along during the month go and pick yourself up a copy whether from your local bookstore or library. This may not be the shortest book but it doesn't mean you have to read the entire thing, pick a story or two that takes your fancy. Do, however, remember to tell us what you thought about them by using the hashtag #bookshelfbookclub and submitting your feedback to the google form here by the 25th June.

Not into the lovey-dovey YA mushiness? Be sure to check back at the end of the month as Anjali's July pick might be more your style!
