the best books on minimalism

If you know anything about me you know that two of my biggest passions are reading and minimalism. Fortunately for me over the past few years there have been quite a few books published that deal with minimalism, decluttering, and looking at the items that you have in your life. Minimalism for me is not…

the best books i read this month – december 2018

Happy End to 2018! Now I don’t know how this year was for you, but for me this was definitely a year of change. I completed my masters degree, moved back across the country to British Columbia, started my first post grad job and started really planning for the future. Despite all this I was…

the best books of 2018

2018 has been one heck of a year; in general as well as in the book publishing world.  I have read quite a few books this year, published both this year as well as in the past, but today I want to highlight some of the best books from this year. You still have time…

the best books I read this month – november 2018

Usually I feel like months move quickly, but in reality it has felt like a lifetime since I have written one of these. With the days getting shorter and the rain having fully come to Vancouver I have really felt the desire to snuggle up on the couch with a blanket and some tea and…

best books of the month – october 2018

Happy Halloween Everyone! While I won’t be talking about that I will be talking about some of my favourite books from the past month. Now this month has not been a great reading month for me. I had quite a few books that I abondoned, finished but only rated two stars, and many days when…

movie covers on books

I feel like the biggest controversy (not really) in the book loving world is surrounding putting movie covers on books. Most people absolutely detest it, stating that it ruins the book and that it is the worst thing to happen to the book world ever. Now while I will probably always pick the non-movie cover…

the best books i read this month – september 2018

Another month has passed and I can really feel the fall coming in. The mornings are cooler and the trees are starting to change colour. I read a bunch of really great books this month and have picked 10 to highlight. I hope you find something interesting that you can add to your to-read list….

the best books I read this month – july 2018

Another month, another stack of books read. My husband jokes that he only sees about a quarter of the books that I read as they come in and out of the house so quickly (and he is probably right). But that is why I love living and working next to two different library systems, I…

the best books I read this month – june 2018

Another month, another pile of books read. This has been such a good reading month, mostly due to the fact that I currently have over two hours of public transit a day which I spend reading (and sometimes listening to podcasts). Being able to do this much reading has been awesome and as such I…

books that disappointed me

Now when you read as many books as I do you find lots of books that you love and that you can’t tear your eyes away from, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t read books (or parts of books) that I don’t enjoy. This is even worse when it is a book that I…
