Book Review: Dazzle Patterns by Alison Watt

Book Review: Dazzle Patterns by Alison Watt

I won't lie, the cover of this book threw me off so I didn't even read its back blurb (yikes!) so THEN I had no idea the story of Dazzle Patterns by Alison Watt was set during the Halifax Explosion of 1917, which resulted in me relegating it to the back of my TBR...

This is a book about a stay-at-home Mom who does part-time work from home; she blogs, she loves reading books, she has a husband who works long hours and she doesn't care for other 'mommy' opinions that she overhears on the playground. Does this sound like anyone you...

Book Review: The Futures by Anna Pitoniak

Book Review: The Futures by Anna Pitoniak

This is an 'older' book by the standards of what I usually review; Anne Pitoniak's The Futures was released in January 2017, so I'm only about a year behind on my TBR list (insert sharp intake of breath here). The back cover  summary of this book spoke to me, because...

Book Review: By Gaslight by Steven Price

Book Review: By Gaslight by Steven Price

I felt like a bit of a rebel picking up this book back in December because I got it from the library, and no one had asked me to read or review it for them, I was simply reading it for (gasp!) pleasure. By Gaslight by Steven Price is one of those books that I knew...

Book Review: A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

Book Review: A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

I've reached that sweet spot in my reading list where I can finally pick books to read off my shelf that I simply want to read. I don't want to seem like I'm complaining, because I love working with different organizations to review books, creating reading lists, etc....

Radio Segment: New Year’s Resolutions!

Radio Segment: New Year’s Resolutions!

So I've been reading a few non-fiction books lately in anticipation of recording this radio segment, mainly because I know people will want to read some books to get them motivated in January. As I mention at the beginning, I will never promote a dieting book,...

Books Ive Read in 2017* (This one actually works!)

Books Ive Read in 2017* (This one actually works!)

I read a total of 76 (ish) books this year, which was more than I read last year, so I'm happy with the overall outcome. As I've mentioned before, I don't count all the books I read in my annual end-of-year list, like parenting books, kids books, or the short story...
