Review: Alice’s Island by Daniel Sanchez Arevalo

Friends, it is I! I return to you as a university graduate and as someone who just read like 4 books in a week and a half. As someone who normally reads that many books in a semester (rip how much reading I do during the semester for school), this was incredible. Including a couple… Continue reading Review: Alice’s Island by Daniel Sanchez Arevalo

Review: Hark by Sam Lipsyte

Happy January friends! With the new year here, I figured I'd better keep to one of my personal goals for this year which was blog more often. So here's hoping that I can keep up a consistent schedule. I'm starting off this year on not an extremely high note. The first book I finished this… Continue reading Review: Hark by Sam Lipsyte

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: The Clockmaker’s Daughter

Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas (which I might start calling the 12 Days of Bookmas... is it too late now?)! I've always been a little obsessed with ghost stories. There was just something about the idea of going camping in the woods and telling spooky stories around a fire that really appealed to… Continue reading Review: The Clockmaker’s Daughter

Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

Excuse me while I crawl out from under the rock that I have been hiding under for the past few months. Classic me, I didn't plan my time well enough and ended up getting swamped by my finals and summer courses. It's been a wild time, but I'd say that it's been time well spent.… Continue reading Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas

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
