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?
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
*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
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
Happy Publication day Are You Sleeping! Let me start off by saying a huge thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me with this book! I'm so honoured to have this opportunity to review new and exciting books. Are You Sleeping was one such ARC, and let me say that the description is… Continue reading Review: Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber
I received this book as an ARC from Simon & Schuster Canada! Let me just say that when this came in the mail, I was so excited - I hadn’t been expecting anything and then out of the blue came two giant packages with 4 (FOUR!) books to review! I am so so happy that… Continue reading Review: The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
Hello and happy Sunday! I hope your weekend has been good so far. I feel like in some ways I’ve been very productive while in others I’ve totally slacked. For instance, I had been planning on posting on Friday night, and yet here we are two days later. Good reason for not posting an Instagram… Continue reading Blog Log #1
Hellooooo long weekend! I had such a nice three days off and guess what I did? That's right, read! My bookstagram friends and I started a Percy Jackson read-along and where else would we start other than the beginning! The Lightning Thief was such a big book for me (not gonna lie, probably started my… Continue reading Review: The Lightning Thief (PJO #1) by Rick Riordan
Hello! Welcome to the alternate universe where I actually keep to my posting schedule! This is really incredible for me haha. Next up is making my instagram schedule more constant. When I was trying to think up what to write about, I think I subconsciously decided to pick one of the most controversial topics out… Continue reading Ships Ahoy!
I have vivid memories of having this book recommended to me in junior high by my English teacher. He said it was one of the only books he had ever read that was written in second person, and that I had to try it out. And so I called up my mom, we drove to… Continue reading Review: If On a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino
Happy Friday everyone! I hope summer has been treating you well. As I kind of expected, I haven’t had a ton of time to read yet this summer due to my study schedule and work, but I’ve been getting through some smaller books. One that I recently finished was “The Man Who Mistook His Wife… Continue reading Review: The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, by Oliver Sacks
So, some of you might’ve noticed that I haven’t been active… for like, 3 months. This coming from someone who wanted to post twice a week, which admittedly didn’t happen, even at the beginning. Oh, how the somewhat mighty have fallen. But, something that I tell myself whenever I start beating myself up over something… Continue reading My Struggles with being Words, Pages, Books
