Workshop your shelves with me!
I like to get creative with my genres - this is a bookshop for mood readers with tender hearts. A space for the most capricious and complex spirits. I want my readers to feel infinite, celestial, and uniquely important to the world. Simply put: I want you to fall in love with what you read.
That's why I have meticulously crafted book lists based on the secret ingredients of novels. I want to rethink what a shelf can be. I made this bookshop with the hope that one day, identities will not be genres. I want mainstream publishing to be so diverse that there is no need to shelve daring books by diverse authors into categories that abscond them.
All book lists here embrace diversity. Whiteness, heterosexuality, US-centrism, etc. are not the default here. Remember, reading is a political act. It's on us to make sure our shelves reflect these beliefs. In this shop, tread with intentionality. Where you put your dollars will set trends.
