Happy July friends! I hope that everyone's summers have been going well! I've been super busy working two jobs and moving - so as a result my writing and reading has been at a low point for the past two months. But with my move finished and my job schedules more regular now, I'm hoping… Continue reading Review: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
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

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

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 am so so happy that… Continue reading Review: The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
