Hi, I’m Jane! I’m a book lover, a green lover, and an England lover.

Welcome to Greenish Bookshelf, my personal blog where I talk about all things books. I started this blog as a new mom in 2015 to help me stay motivated to read for me. I wanted a place to document my reading journey, a place to record my “reader lives.”

Where did my blog title come from? My favorite color has always been green. So it made sense to combine my two favorite things–green and books–in my blog’s title. One day, I hope to have an amazing, home library as awesome (and as green!) as some of these:

What kinds of books do I read? If I had to pick favorites, I would say the classics, historical romance, YA fantasy, and WWII fiction. I love the classics. Some of my ultimate favorites include Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and Little Women. But I am also a big Harry Potter fan, love a beautiful romance, and enjoy a clever fantasy world. Basically, I dabble in many genres depending on what sparks my interest from day to day. Check out my full list of reviews here.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading along with me. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate you reading my blog. I’m relatively new to book blogging as well. I’ve found that as you read others and give them thoughtful comments, they will read your blog and give you great comments. And be consistent in your posting. It’s fun to see new posts on my favorite blogs regularly. Again, thanks for stopping by! Welcome to blogging!
