Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Believe me when I say that anything Madeline Miller writes is a must read. I know she's only written two books so far, but she is by far one of my favourite authors. When I read The Song of Achilles, I was completely enchanted. And while many people said that the ending was heart wrenching… Continue reading Review: Circe by Madeline Miller

Review: Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas

When I think about how the Throne of Glass series is over, I get a little teary eyed. Not only are the ToG some of my favourites, but it has literally been with me my entire university career. I remember getting the first book just before I started university, and now I've finished it as… Continue reading Review: Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas

Cafe Collection #4

If you've been following my blog recently, you'll know that I've been doing a new segment called cafe collection. My one problem with it is that I tend to visit too many cafes in too short of a time span. So like, I have at least 5 to talk about at any given time. My… Continue reading Cafe Collection #4

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Talyor

Hello and happy Thursday! If you haven't noticed I'm really trying to get a Monday/Thursday posting schedule down and I'm going to hesitantly say that it's working? I know that I've missed one Monday so far but otherwise its looking pretty good! Let's hope I can stockpile some posts for the months of October through… Continue reading Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Talyor

Blog Log #5!

Wow where did August go?? It's literally the 20th and I feel like I haven't done anything this summer. That's an over exaggeration - I've done a boat load. But everything seems to flit away when I try to think of all I did haha. Big things? I'm going into my final year of my… Continue reading Blog Log #5!

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Happy Thursday everyone! I'm back for my (apparently already off schedule) regular programming. And I'm ready to hit you - figuratively of course, but literally in the heart - with another sweet sweet review. And up this week is... An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson! I don't know what prompted me to ask for… Continue reading Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Cafe Collection #2

While back in Newfoundland I've spent a lot of time study and expanded my (very limited) knowledge of cafes in St. John's. I normally just spend my time at Jumping Bean, seeing as there is a tragic shortage of non-chain cafes here. But I think I might have just discovered a new winner. Georgetown Cafe… Continue reading Cafe Collection #2

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Nevernight! My first Jay Kristoff novel! And what a way to dive in. Like I said in my review of Illuminae, Kristoff is definitely one of my new favourite authors. He is not afraid at all to kill off characters, to write some dark fiction, and I LOVE it. It's such a tempo change from… Continue reading Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Review: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman

So as it turns out, to continue my excitement after exiting my reading block, I fell into a Jay Kristoff marathon. Starting with Nevernight, I peeked over to my TBR shelf and saw - you guessed it - Illuminae! I've always been interested in how authors collaborate on books. Like, does one author take certain… Continue reading Review: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman

Review: Every Note Played by Lisa Genova

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to everyone who celebrates these holidays! I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend (or, if you're like me, a long weekend!). I spent most of it relaxing with my mom, reading and studying. What was I reading, you might ask? Well, Every Note Played by Lisa Genova, which incidentally… Continue reading Review: Every Note Played by Lisa Genova

Review: Forgotten Rebel by Erin McDermott

Hello! Happy St. Patrick's Day! Although I don't celebrate this day much other than wearing green (which weirdly I wore yesterday rather than today), its still a big thing in my home province of Newfoundland. Also, you know who is rocking a green outfit? Fanny on the cover of Forgotten Rebel! Thats right! Erin McDermott… Continue reading Review: Forgotten Rebel by Erin McDermott

Re-review: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

You know, I feel like I should re-read books more often - it's funny to go back and read my old reviews on Goodreads. Maybe I'll make this an actual series - this summer would give me a great opportunity to do so! Would people be interested in that? Anyways, here's my re-review of Unravel… Continue reading Re-review: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
