Hello and welcome!

My (adopted) name is Kay and I am the blogger behind Kay’s Bookshelf. I have started the site in early 2007 wanting to make it a place to jot down my thoughts on the books I devoured. I’m a passionate reader and have been so ever since I can remember, so becoming a book blogger seemed like a natural transition to make. My favorite books are time-travel related ones and/or historical fiction (the books that touch both are even better, of course). I love Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, but also some contemporary authors such as Terry Pratchett, Stephen Fry or Philippa Gregory.  Mostly I appreciate a book not by its artistic form but by the way it makes me live inside it (or not).

In real life I live in Timisoara, Romania, where I am a software developer and happy owner to two playful cats. Besides reading I also enjoy solving jigsaw puzzles, and every now and then I get online to play some World of Warcraft.

  1. My first book was just released. I live and write in Hawaii and my book is a mystery/suspense that takes place here. I’m working on the second in my series. Do you accept submissions for review?
