meHi, I’m Chelsea! I’m a 34 year-old Librarian, living in Toronto. My passions are reading and attending the theatre, hence Spotlight on Stories. This blog will contain book reviews and book tags, thoughts on musicals, plays, and ballets I’ve seen recently, and a dash of history.

My primary genres are Fantasy, Science-Fiction, and Historical Fiction, with some Literary Fiction and Classics sprinkled in but I’ll try most things. Some of my favourite books include:

  • The Lymond Chronicles by Dorothy Dunnett
  • A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
  • The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne
  • Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
  • Tin Man by Sarah Winman
  • The Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
  • The Divine Cities trilogy by Robert Jackson Bennett
  • The Doctrine of Labyrinths series by Sarah Monette
  • Everything I Never Told You by Celene Ng
  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
  • Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
  • Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe
