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 – 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…

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 – february 2020

Another month another selection of book recommendations. This month I finally published my 2020 reading goals where I go over all of my goals for the year, which you will start seeing me track at the bottom of each of my monthly posts. I am starting to settle into my new normal routine, with my…

the best books I read this month – january 2020

Just don’t ask me about this month, I honestly have no idea where it went at all. Even typing this feels weird because I feel like I haven’t touched a keyboard in eons. Let alone touched a book, but according to my Goodreads I did do some reading at the beginning of the month. I…

the best books I read this month – november 2019

This has been a crazy month and that is definitely shown in the books that I was reading this month. My goodreads goal has been lacking and it is currently showing that I am three books behind where at the beginning of the month I was ahead. But lets focus on the good things, not…

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…

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…
