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
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
On today, the last day of 2018, and I feel like I have so much to be thankful for. This year has definitely had its ups and downs, but overall I think that I've been super lucky and happy with how its gone. One huge thing that I've accomplished is that I'm nearly done my… Continue reading Blog Log #6!
This year has been an amazing year, and part of why I've enjoyed it so much is that I've become a book reviewer. Not only do I work with Simon and Schuster Canada to review upcoming publications, but also with authors themselves. It always brings me joy to know that people appreciate my opinion, and… Continue reading Upcoming Book Reviews!
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
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
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
Today is the release day of The Room on Rue Amelie by Kristin Harmel! This is one of two ARCs that I received from Simon & Schuster Canada this spring in exchange for an honest review, and I can't wait to tell you guys what I thought about this one. I'll try to keep my… Continue reading Review: The Room on Rue Amelie by Kristin Harmel!
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
Hello and Welcome back! I took a break after doing my twelve days of Xmas to let myself settle back into my life in Montreal, sort out all my new activities, and most importantly read some more books! I've only managed to read two books since coming back but man have they given me something… Continue reading Review: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
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
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
