beyond a bookshelf is the culmination of Ellie, known online as faerieontheshelf, and Imi of Imi Reviews Books.
After creating F/F February in 2019, we decided to coblog and create a real home for our LGBTQIA+ reading challenges as well as working together on more exciting projects.
Writer at heart, reader in reality, Imi spends as much time as possible with her nose in a book. She adores fantasy and believes there is nothing better than being transported by words to another land / world / planet / universe.
However, when she isn’t reading, Imi is living in Manchester working in Digital Marketing. Her other hobbies include musical theatre, scuba diving, singing and photography.
Imi used to blog at Imi Reviews Books and you can find all her previous reviews there.
Lover of stabby antiheroines, Ellie seeks out dark academia and morally grey narratives more than anything else. She’s passionate about a wide range of genres but especially loves to uplift inclusive novels and stories by marginalized authors.
She also loves Donna Tartt, to the point where she got her hair cut to emulate Tartt’s iconic bob. Besides reading, she loves exploring old houses, walking through woods, and discovering new films from across the globe.
