“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!

book.review: the wolves of winter by tyrell johnson

wolves

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.

book.review: without merit by colleen hoover

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.

book.review: Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy

IMG_0053

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!

book.review: 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.

book.review: it happens all the time by amy hatvany

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.
