Welcome to Tattered Covers & Broken Spines! Please accept my invitation to join me here in my spooky little corner of the blogosphere.

UPDATE: As of December 2020, I am currently closed for review submissions. I hope to begin accepting them again soon. The last few months have been rough and I unfortunately haven’t had a lot of reading time. I need to catch up before accepting anything new. Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Who am I? My name is Nicole Amburgey and I am a lifetime reader and a former bookseller of 18 years. I have spent more than half my life happily toiling away in both independent and chain bookstores.

What kind of content will you find? This site will be primarily dedicated to dark and weird fiction – anything from magical realism to horror. Non-fiction will be featured on occasion, but it will always have its roots in the macabre.

There is a theme here, can you tell?

Last, but certainly not least, you will also find occasional tags if they relate to horror – I think they can be fun and will give you a sense of who I am as a reader – if my reviews don’t say enough about me.

Have fun poking around! I hope you find some excellent additions for your TBR list!
