A Very ARCish Readathon

A Very ARCish Readathon

Hi, everyone! Popping by today to let you all know of a reading challenge that I’ve joined for the month of April. A Very ARCish Readathon is being hosted by Bookshelves and Paperbacks and the basic premise is to just read ARCs in the month of April. I’m way behind on my ARC reading and I hope that this readathon will help me get at least a few languishing books out of my TBR pile. I don’t have a big goal but below are a few books that I am going to try to read this month. A Shadow Bright and Burning… Read more »

Review: Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

Review: Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers

I picked this book up about a year ago, excited to finally finish this great series, when I found myself losing interest and putting it down. I didn’t think I’d wait this long to come back to it, but I’m glad that I did. I picked up where I left off and was immediately drawn back into this world of magic, gods, and assassins. Mortal Heart gets off to a much slower start than its predecessors. I think the reason I stalled on it the first time was that it takes a lot longer to get into the meat of the plot than the first two books. In hindsight, however, I think the pacing fits Annith’s story well. Her life isn’t one of danger… Read more »

New Trailer: The Mummy

New Trailer: The Mummy

I haven’t heard a whole lot about this remake of The Mummy but recently they’ve been dropping some new trailers and footage. I’m not going to lie, I kind of love the 1999 series starring Brendan Frasier and Rachel Weisz. Sure it’s a bit cheesy but it’s a lot of fun and I have mixed feelings about Tom Cruise coming in and Cruise-ing it up. I can already tell from the trailer that this is going to be a much more “serious” take on things. Tom Cruise tends to intensify everything that he’s in. It looks pretty action packed and… Read more »

Stacked (160): Ontario Teen Book Fest Edition

Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. This week’s post is all about Ontario Teen Book Fest. OTBF is a really fun local event that I try to get to every year. This year I was lucky and my friend A was already planning to drive out there so all I had to do was get in the car.  We had a ton of fun meeting a great group of YA authors. I was very good this year and only picked up a couple of books. Even though I have… Read more »

March Catch Up

March Catch Up

Hi, guys. Well it’s been a crazy month in my life. I am officially moved now. It’s wasn’t a huge move, distance-wise, but I find moving quite traumatic usually and it’s taken me a while to really settle into the new place. I am still not all the way there but I am working on it. It helps that I have my bookshelves set up (thanks to my friend’s help). I got rid of a hundred books or more before the move. They were mainly books I hadn’t gotten around to even though I’ve had them for years. I was kind… Read more »

Beat the Backlist Challenge

Beat the Backlist Challenge

It’s me again. Wow more than one post this week. I think that must be a new recent record. I am stopping by today to talk about a reading challenge that I just joined. My friend K at The Windy Pages joined the same challenge earlier this year and I am shamelessly jumping on the bandwagon. Novel Knight are hosting Beat the Backlist, a year long reading challenge that is all about catching up on that backlist of books. I buy books all the time and am super excited about them, only to put them aside for newer, shinier things. This challenge… Read more »

Hello and welcome to Stacked, a weekly (usually) post where I discuss what books I’ve recently bought, borrowed or received. Hello again! As you guys know, I am currently in the process of moving house, which means I have been purging a lot of books. This means that I’ve been actively trying to to acquire any new books until my move is complete. This week though, I let myself go back to the library to get a couple of things. I figured it couldn’t hurt too much and if I only checked out a couple of things. This is what I came… Read more »

Hello 2017!

Hello 2017!

Happy New Year, everyone! I probably say this every year (and I mean it every year) but wow, I cannot believe that another year has gone by already. I had a really nice holiday with family, though I did get sick right after Christmas. It was really lingering for a while but this week I feel like I am finally starting to get back on my feet healthwise. I am not a huge fan of resolutions but I do like to set myself some goals at the beginning of the year. Below are some of the things I’d like to… Read more »
