About Me

thumbnail_Image (18).jpg

My name is Jess and this is my blog, The Barnacle Bookshelf! In case you couldn't tell from the name of the blog, I love pirates and I love books, so what better way to combine them?!

I'm currently residing near Seattle with my husband and our little cat baby Nebula. I'm sure she'll make appearances here over time. 

My favorite things include anything mermaids or pirates, tattoos, music, things that smell nice (especially bookish candles), and anything shiny! I love spooky time, and my house has Halloween decor up all year round.

Current favorite authors include Scarlett St. Clair, Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Jennifer L.. Armentrout, Tricia Levenseller, Danielle Jensen, Sarah J. Maas, and Samantha Shannon. I mainly read New Adult and Young Adult, and sci-fi and fantasy are my jam.
