a spark of light by jodi picoult



Sometimes life has a bad habit of getting in the way. In a blink of an eye, six months has passed and you’re still reeling from it. Six months got away from me. Time has a way of slipping through your fingers, especially when you’re having trouble grasping onto all the changes happening around you. While you adapt and overcome, some things happen to slip through the cracks. Reading and writing was that for me. Very little reading, very little motivation to write.

Enter a book to change that.

Jodi Picoult nailed this one right out of the park. I read it in half a day.

“Maybe I wasn’t really losing it. Maybe I just needed some help.”

PERMANENT MARKER by Aimee Ross starts with a fantastic opening – one that reeled me in immediately and made me want to dive into this memoir. I’m certainly glad that I did!

Continue reading the wolves of winter by tyrell johnson


Whoops, took an exceptionally long time off again. It’s how it goes – sometimes there is an urge to write and other times there isn’t. The urge to read never went away though!

I have a deep love of apocalyptic novels. Is that odd? I will literally read anything with an apocalyptic theme – it instantly shoots to the top of my to-be-read list. This is exactly what happened with THE WOLVES OF WINTER by Tyrell Johnson.

without merit

I’m the first to admit that I’m a relatively new fan of Colleen Hoover’s. I stumbled into one of her books a few years ago and fell instantly in love. It led me to the deep anticipation of the Fall of every year when she tends to release a new book for the public.

I was no less excited when it was announced that WITHOUT MERIT was due this Fall. Unfortunately, I’m a little underwhelmed. Trust me, I’m really bummed.

Continue reading Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy


Recently, I moved out onto my own. It’s wonderful, but the biggest gripe has been finances – where to cut costs in order to maintain it on my own.

What was first to go? My below Indigo-Chapters bookstore runs.

What took it’s place was something I hadn’t been inside of in over 12 years – the library. Now armed with my own library card, I’ve forgotten the simple pleasure of browsing the aisles and finding that ‘must-read’ buried within the stacks. The first ‘must-read’ I found hiding in my libraries bookshelves was Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy.

And boy, is it ever a must read!

The squee that emitted from my mouth when I was approved for this ARC. Taylor Jenkins Reid never disappoints and THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO was not an exception.

Continue reading The Regulars by Georgia Clark


This review is my most liked review on GoodReads…and for good reason. I’m being honest when I say this book is a smogasboard of horrid. There is such a thing as ugly..and it’s this book.

I must have missed something here. I’ve never read a book that has inspired such a bad review and I’m going to try and keep my emotions in check.

I’ve just finished THE REGULARS by Georgia Clark…and I’m pretty mad.

Warning: do NOT start this book at 10:00pm on a weeknight. You’ll find yourself, like me, wide awake at 1am, 49% of the way through the novel, and just dying to read one. more. chapter.

A highly addictive read. A gripping premise. IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME by Amy Hatvany is a must read.

I SEE YOU by Clare Mackintosh is a good foray into the mystery thriller, and had it not taken it sweet little time getting into the nitty-gritty, I would have rated it higher. Buckle up – if you want to read, you need to be prepared to be in for the long haul.
