Review: All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Hello! If you follow me on Instagram, then you'll know that I've recently finished Maggie Stiefvater's new book All The Crooked Saints. This book focuses on the miracle granting Saint of Bicho Raro and the Soria family, the pilgrims that they aren't allowed to help, and the acceptance of one's true self. I highly recommend… Continue reading Review: All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Blue is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh

So the second 'book' that I've read this month was the graphic novel Blue is the Warmest Colour. I'm sure that people have heard of the movie adaptation that came out 2013, that made a lot of news mainly for featuring a lesbian couple, something that hadn't been very popular on the big screen, or… Continue reading Review: Blue is the Warmest Colour by Julie Maroh

Review: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

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

Old Books and New Books

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

Favourite Book Quizzes

I don't know about you but one of my favourite ways to waste time is by taking pointless buzzfeed quizzes. And while I'm known to take a lot of their food quizzes, I'm also faulted for being a sucker for their book quizzes. Who doesn't love being told what their age is based on their… Continue reading Favourite Book Quizzes

Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Happy New Year's Eve! This year has been full of ups and downs, and unfortunately for me it was mostly downs. But! That doesn't mean that there wasn't some ups as well! I became a reviewer for Simon & Schuster Canada, which is a dream come true; I completed my reading goal and even read… Continue reading Review: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Christmas Haul (part 1)

Merry Christmas Everyone! I'm not really a practicing Christian, but my family still celebrates. This year, to try to cut back on spending and stream line the gift buying process, I gave my parents a list of books that I was interested in.

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?

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?
