I finished reading Claudia Day’s Heartbreaker over a month ago, but needed time to process the story before writing a full review. Over the past few weeks, though, I still haven’t fully processed everything that happened in this story. This might seem annoying to some people—not experiencing that sense of a complete story—but I’ve come to accept that’s part of what makes books so intriguing.
It’s getting closer to the most wonderful time of the year! And by that, I don’t mean the holidays. Instead, I am talking about “it’s too cold to go outside so I will stay inside all day and get cozy with a book!” season. Ah yes, for bookworms like myself, winter (in Canada) is perfect for curling up with a good book for hours on end.
For others, though, December brings a whirlwind of holiday parties and get-togethers, where you might be stuck with an introverted book nerd for secret Santa. Have no fear! I am here to help you find the perfect gift for all the readers in your life. I know it can be overwhelming trying to pick out a book for someone who has seemingly read everything, so once again, my gift guide includes no books! However, I will say, you can never go wrong with getting a bibliophile a gift card to a local bookstore.
If you’d rather something more personal, be sure to check out the options below. If you don’t see anything that suits your needs, you can also check out my gift guide from 2017 as well.
I had been excited to read Not Her Daughter ever since I started following Rea Frey on Instagram and learned that she was working on a book. Her photos and bookish content were always so inspiring and well-curated. I knew right away that her debut novel would be, too. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
In 2014 I was studying international development and project management at Humber College. In April of that year, 276 females were kidnapped from a school in Nigeria. You might remember it being referred to as the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping (Chibok was the town they were living and attending school in). I still remember this event, as everyone in my program was talking about it.
Dun dun . . . dun dun . . . dun dun dun dun dun dun dun . . . AHH! TBR Thursday is back!
Since I recently saw this summer’s greatest thriller (The Meg) I thought it would be appropriate to kick off TBR Thursdays with another fin-tastic classic: Jaws.
I’ve been taking some time off from blogging this summer to enjoy, well, summer, but I’m slowly starting to get back into the swing of things! I’ve read my way through a few books over the past couple of months, but the first one I want to take the time to review is one that shook me up in all the wrong ways.
July is finally here, which means it’s time to kick off my summer reading! I know it’s felt like summer for a few weeks already, but to me, summer will always be July and August; it’s one of those things from being a student that I just can’t shake. And making summer reading lists has always been something I’ve loved doing.
