reading the goodreads choice awards

Every year now for the past three years I have made it a goal to read all of the Goodreads Choice Award winners (or close to). This means that I am reading books in 20 different categories as well as keeping up on books that are popular, which is important as a librarian. Now I…

the best books i read this month – july 2020

Summer has arrived! It is so nice to actually start wearing the shorts that are in my closet and also to discover that my home stays pretty cool, even on the days that go over 30 degrees. I always love starting to write these blog posts because it means I get to take a look…

the best books i read this month – june 2020

This has not been a normal month and as such this will not be a normal book blog post. I have been posting these monthly best book posts since almost the beginning of my blog life and I love posting them, but sometimes things in the world are too loud for you to ignore. Earlier…

the best books i read this month – may 2020

And just like that another month at home has passed. Not much has changed in my household, we are both still not working, my garden and plants are helping to keep me mentally sane, and I am still reading a lot. We have been able to start seeing some of our friends in a socially…

the best books i read this month – april 2020

Well what a month this has been. Everyone has had different experiences with reading at this time. There are people that are usually big readers that can’t seem to pick up a book, and others that are reading more than ever. Neither of these are wrong. If you are reading lots right now here are…

As I have talked about in a bunch of my past posts I love the start of a new year. One of the reasons I love new years is for the new books that are coming out. From new authors to the people that I will pick up everything they write, here are some of…

the best books i read this month – december 2019

This is it. The final monthly book post of 2019. I have been reading a lot this month to catch up and read my goal of 300 books this year. As of writing this I have two books left with two days left to read them and I am confident that I will be able…

the best books i read this month – october 2019

The world is definitely seeming darker lately, as the sun isn’t rising until I am getting to work and the temperature is already in the negatives (which is very strange for Vancouver). It is really getting to the time of year where I want to cuddle up and read with some tea or hot chocolate…

top ten tuesday – books on my fall TBR

I have never been much for blog challenges, but I have been seeing this one come up every Tuesday for a while now in some of my favourite book blogs so I figured I would give it a shot. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved…

2019 reading challenges catch up

At the beginning of the year I set a few reading goals for myself (see the post here). These goals were: Finish up my ARCs (Advanced Readers Copies) Canadian Reading Challenge version 2.0 – I am going to try and read a book set in each Province and Territory (13 in total) Goodreads Challenge 2.0…
