September Book haul

IMG_2532I have been so incredibly busy that I just have not had a chance to review any of the books I read last month but I can tell you I highly enjoyed the two children’s reads Princess Academy by Shannon Hale and Fairest by Gail Carson Levine. I have mentioned in a few posts over the course of the last four months I have been on a no book buy. Read the full post »

Wish it Wednesdays

Its the middle of the month and here we are again for another instalment of Wish it Wednesdays! I have a wish list of books that is ridiculously long as any book lover would have. I have a wish list at Chapters, Amazon, mentally, in my notes, on Goodreads….that’s a lot of book lists and not many of them have books that are on more than one. I thought I would share a few books that are on my wish list that I hope to obtain, Read the full post »

Wish it Wednesdays

Happy Wednesday! I decided to do a fun segment every month called Wish it Wednesdays. I have a wish list of books that is ridiculously long as any book lover would have.  I have a wish list at Chapters, Amazon, mentally, in my notes, on Goodreads….that’s a lot of book lists and not many of them have books that are on more than one. I’m coming to the end of my no book buy that I have painfully endured for the last 4 months Read the full post »

Review: An Irish Country Doctor #1 by Patrick Taylor

IMG_2397Dreaming of the beautiful Irish countryside, sigh. I love a good story about Ireland, there are not many that I have found yet but they mean a lot to me. Im Irish, my grandfather was born there, I unfortently not though I wish I had been. I went there once way back in 2005 and I fell in love with the place. I grew up listening to Irish music, saying Irish/english terms and dreaming about the place so when I found this book I had to pick it up. Read the full post »

Review: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

IMG_2396What a fun little read this was. I’ve had Inkheart sitting on my bookcase since around 2008/9, or something like that.  Thats the longest I’ve left a book unread and I really wish I had read it earlier. I read Dragon Rider and The Thief Lord ages ago when I was in middle school and loved them but this one didn’t quite do it for me. Read the full post »

News & Reading Challenge

Hey All!

I haven’t been able to post much in the last month, books I have read are still sitting waiting to be reviewed and I have new content to write. I had a busy month of writing (for a creative writing course), reading, packing and moving to my new apartment! (which has been very exciting) I will try to start getting some posts up, Read the full post »

Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant by Veronica Roth

IMG_2355I Loved, Loved, Loved this series. I am a little late getting to reading these. The first movie has already been released and I am sad to say that I broke one of my rules and saw the movie before reading the books…. Oops. Anyways I read them all pretty fast because they were so good so I am doing my reviews for them all together. At this point I am sure that most people interested in this series has already read the last book so this review will contain spoilers Read the full post »

Review: Briar Rose by Jane Yolen


I love fairy tales so when I found this book, (I’m not sure where I found it anymore) I had to buy it. It sat on my shelf for almost a year and I kept thinking I should read this, but then when it came down to picking my reading list it always got shot. So I finally took to reading to and it was so unexpected. Read the full post »

Review: The Summer We Read Gatsby by Danielle Ganek

IMG_2255Summer is finally here and I can finally read all my beach reads that have been sitting on my shelf for quite some time! I picked up this book back in December when it was on sale at Chapters for super cheap.  I had a hard time getting into this novel but once I was in it wasn’t too bad. I loved the Great Gatsby so I was hoping to get a little bit of that in this. Read the full post »
