It's the last day of Christmas and to end off my blogging blitz I thought that I would talk about how my book taste has changed over the years. Obviously, changes in tastes occur naturally and as you grow up you become interested in different topics and genres. I've definitely seen a change in my… Continue reading Old Books and New Books
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? By Michael Adams
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: 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

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

My bookstagram friends and I started a Percy Jackson read-along and where else would we start other than the beginning!

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!
Review: If On a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino
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
Review: The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, by Oliver Sacks
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
