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…

re-reading old books

I am not a huge re-reader of books. There are very few books that I have read over and over again, mostly because there are so many new books that I want to read that I don’t have the time to go back to them. Over the past few months I found myself going back…

the best books i read this month – august 2020

August has slipped away (like a bottle of wine) and with the end of the month comes my monthly book post about the best books I read this month. This month brought back for me reading while sitting on transit which is lovely and also I read a few of my old favourite books which…

reading canadian

Most of the books that I read come out of the United States. Some of this is due to awareness; most book bloggers and reviewers that I follow come from the United States so they are promoting the books that are close to them, also many books from the USA get a lot more money…

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 about the enneagram

For the past year or so I have been very invested in the enneagram. Much of my daily interaction with it is through Instagram accounts (both serious and more funny), but I have also spent quite a bit of time reading books through the library as well as I have had the ability to read…

listening and being silent

It is not my time to speak. I am not black, nor will I ever understand what People of Colour go through every day. Today is not the day to share my thoughts, but I will share some of the resources that I have read or watched, either in the past or recently, as well…

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…
