BookCase Club Subscription Box Review

BookCase Club Subscription Box Review

Hi, everyone. I am doing something a little different today. A few months ago I signed up for my first book subscription box. No doubt you’ve heard about them. Basically you sign up for a subscription to a service that sends you a box every month (time frames vary from box to box) that contains a book and maybe some bookish items (candles, bookmarks, etc.). The most popular ones seem to be those catering to fans of young adult. While I love YA, I wanted to branch out a bit and find something different. While I really liked the pictures… 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 »

Stacked (160): Ontario Teen Book Fest Edition

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 »

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 »

New Poster and Teaser Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

New Poster and Teaser Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Have you guys seen? A new poster and teaser trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was just released today. Even though the film won’t be released until next year, fans have been chomping at the book for any and all information they can get on the upcoming sequel. I really like the overall feel of the poster which I am assuming it supposed to look like an album cover. Everyone looks super badass and I am excited to see where the next movie goes. I am actually trying not to hear too much about it before it come… Read more »

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

Review: Wild Embrace by Nalini Singh

Ever since Singh first mentioned the Alaris deep-sea station (I can’t remember when this was), I hoped that she would write a story that gave us a closer look at this unusual setting and its unique occupants. She finally does so in this sweet novella about Stefan, a Psy/TK, and Tazia, a human working on the station. Though Tazia is human, she is a lot like Stefan. Estranged from her family, Tazia lives a very lonely life aboard Alaris. As a Psy and former Arrow, Stefan has learned to keep a tight leash on his emotions. However, when the two end up working together to help rebuild a village, their attraction reaches a breaking point which neither can ignore. … Read more »

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt

Review: Once Upon a Moonlit Night by Elizabeth Hoyt

Hippopyta Royle is on the run. With the help of housekeeper Bridget Crumb, she has managed to escape a plot by the Duke of Montgomery to force her into marriage. Unfortunately, Hippolyta is still in danger as the Duke has sent his hounds to find her. Luckily she happens upon a carriage and begs for a lift to the next town. Covered in dirt, leaves, and who knows what else, Hippolyta looks like a homeless cat and not like the heiress that she is. It’s no wonder then that the carriage’s owner and occupant, Matthew Mortimer, doesn’t believe her when she tells him her wild tale. He takes pity on her though and agrees to take her to the next village. As they travel, Hippolyta and Matthew trade barbs that disguise… Read more »

Comic-Con 2016 Recap: Television

Comic-Con 2016 Recap: Television

Hello, dear readers! Well it’s been a couple of weeks since the insanity that is Comic-Con. I feel like it was all kind of a dream still but I am slowly getting back into real life. I had a really good con this year. It was another laid back year for me. I definitely had some panels and signings I wanted to get to but nothing I would be heartbroken about if missed. This year I focused on a lot of bookish and comics related panels with a few TV panels thrown in. I didn’t get to any of the… Read more »
