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

In order to accept herself and ask others to do the… Continue reading Review: The Story of My Face by Leanne Baugh

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: 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

12 Days of Christmas TAKE 2!

Hello! Merry Christmas and Happy Kwanza to all! I'm going to be doing a 12 Days of Christmas thing again this year, and what better way to start it off than to go over the books gifted to me this year! I'm super excited about all of the books that I received. Half were sequels… Continue reading 12 Days of Christmas TAKE 2!

Cafe Collection #4

If you've been following my blog recently, you'll know that I've been doing a new segment called cafe collection. My one problem with it is that I tend to visit too many cafes in too short of a time span. So like, I have at least 5 to talk about at any given time. My… Continue reading Cafe Collection #4

Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Talyor

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

Review: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Thursday! One more day! Who else is excited for the weekend?? I know I am. Not only do I have some exciting plans but I can't wait to sleep in and read in bed (which currently, in the intense Montreal heat, is just me lying on the bed haha). And since finishing the MCAT basically… Continue reading Review: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

August TBR

Happy August my bibliophile friends! I have finally (FINALLY) been released from my prison that was MCAT studying. I'm sure many of you get this feeling too, but I find whenever I need to study really intensely for something I just have no energy to read for fun at the end of the day. I… Continue reading August TBR

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

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

Review: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman

So as it turns out, to continue my excitement after exiting my reading block, I fell into a Jay Kristoff marathon. Starting with Nevernight, I peeked over to my TBR shelf and saw - you guessed it - Illuminae! I've always been interested in how authors collaborate on books. Like, does one author take certain… Continue reading Review: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman
