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…

the best books i read this month – august 2019

I can feel a nip in the air. It is gone by the time the sun is high in the sky, but that walk to the bus in the morning has me thinking about the fall. And honestly, since fall is my favourite season, I am ready for it. But before we can look forward…

tackling my reading list – netgalley reviewathon

I have been reviewing books on NetGalley for over two years now, and while the excitement of getting new books before they hit the shelves hasn’t yet gone away I love it for more than just that. I love sharing books with people and I love being able to share my thoughts about them. NetGalley…

the best books i read this month – june 2019

Happy Summer! While it doesn’t quite feel like summer as I am writing this, I can feel it in the air and I know that the warm weather is just around the corner. I am writing this while eating fresh local raspberries and my garden and fridge are full of local vegetables. But onto the…

the book genre I have come to love

If you were to have asked me a few years ago if there were any books I didn’t read I would wholeheartedly said Romance. I would have never picked up a book that seemed like it had Romance as its main theme (and was an Adult book, because lets be honest I definitely read my…

the best books i read this month – may 2019

I feel like I say this every month, but where did the time go? The sun is out, the shorts are on, and books keep on a rolling. I find that I can read more on my commutes as the weather gets warmer as it is light out when I am going to and from…

the best summer reads 2019

One of my favourite parts about being involved in the library and book world is being able to read books before they are published. I do this in exchange for reviewing the books and I love being able to check out some great books before they hit the shelves. Because of this I have been…
