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!
When I think about how the Throne of Glass series is over, I get a little teary eyed. Not only are the ToG some of my favourites, but it has literally been with me my entire university career. I remember getting the first book just before I started university, and now I've finished it as… Continue reading Review: Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas
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
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
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
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
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
Excuse me while I crawl out from under the rock that I have been hiding under for the past few months. Classic me, I didn't plan my time well enough and ended up getting swamped by my finals and summer courses. It's been a wild time, but I'd say that it's been time well spent.… Continue reading Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J Maas
Happy Easter and Happy Passover to everyone who celebrates these holidays! I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend (or, if you're like me, a long weekend!). I spent most of it relaxing with my mom, reading and studying. What was I reading, you might ask? Well, Every Note Played by Lisa Genova, which incidentally… Continue reading Review: Every Note Played by Lisa Genova
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
