Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Happy New Year's Eve! This year has been full of ups and downs, and unfortunately for me it was mostly downs. But! That doesn't mean that there wasn't some ups as well! I became a reviewer for Simon & Schuster Canada, which is a dream come true; I completed my reading goal and even read… Continue reading Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Christmas Haul (part 2)

Its BOXING DAY! I don't really know what the purpose of boxing day is, but I figured it would be a good day to show my non-book gifts that are still in certain fandoms! Up first, I got a really cute ornament of the TARDIS! I used to be super into Doctor Who, but I… Continue reading Christmas Haul (part 2)

Christmas Haul (part 1)

Merry Christmas Everyone! I'm not really a practicing Christian, but my family still celebrates. This year, to try to cut back on spending and stream line the gift buying process, I gave my parents a list of books that I was interested in. And GOD BLESS THEM, they got me all of them and more!… Continue reading Christmas Haul (part 1)

Review: Strange Fires by Tommy Wallach

Strange Fire is OUT NOW! This past week has been a whirlwind of reading for me! I think I’ve finished two books in one week, which is the first time that that has happened in a while! And it was all thanks to Strange Fire by Tommy Wallach. Man oh man, I really had no… Continue reading Review: Strange Fires by Tommy Wallach

Review: Could it Happen Here? By Michael Adams

So I had fully meant to read and review Strange Fires first, but then I got book mail and everything went sideways (you know how it is). I always love getting these books to review because it’s always a surprise which one I’m going to get - this time it was “Could it Happen Here?… Continue reading Review: Could it Happen Here?

Can we talk about Crooked Kingdom for a minute?

Ok so I meant to post this about a month ago but apparently my computer didn’t save what I had written (which is so sad because I had basically written another novel about how much I love this novel). But that might be a good thing because now I’ll only take maybe 1000000 words? (I… Continue reading Can we talk about Crooked Kingdom for a minute?

Review: Captive Rebel by Erin McDermott

Hello again! To all the students out there, welcome back to school! I’ve just started my third week of university and it kind of feels like I never had a summer haha. I wish I had had more time this summer for leisure reading, but I’m still pretty happy with what I accomplished. One of… Continue reading Review: Captive Rebel by Erin McDermott

Review: The History of Bees by Maja Lunde

*Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me with an ARC for this book!* With summer drawing to a close and exam dates looming, my reading has kind of slowed down a little bit. But not so much that I couldn't read The History of Bees! Let me start off by saying that… Continue reading Review: The History of Bees by Maja Lunde

Review: A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

I find that whenever I revisit authors that I read in high school, I get a very different feel and view of the book. For Hemingway, that didn’t really change. I read An Old Man and The Sea in grade 11 or 12, and I remember thinking ‘wow, this guy doesn’t really care about punctuation’.… Continue reading Review: A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
