It is suddenly freezing in Toronto with a lot of snow, so I couldn‘t have come across this passage at a more perfect time.
“The weather. It‘s like a poem. Where each word is more than one thing at once and everything‘s a metaphor. The meaning condensed into rhythm and sound and the spaces between sentences. It‘s all intense and sharp like the cold and the wind.”

This has been one of my favourite books this fall. I also had the pleasure of seeing @cherie.dimaline speak in Hamilton and in Toronto. If you ever have the chance, go see her speak! And of course... if you are looking for a great read, pick this beauty of a book up!! 📚💜 #fallreads #greatbooks #booklove

Chrissyreadit It sounds like a great read! 1mo

I loved this book! I often have a hard time when books have unreliable narrators, but Anna is so engrossing and although at times you aren‘t sure if you can trust her as the reader, I was always on her side. Total #gutsyheroine, Anna goes above and beyond to protect people she cares for, despite her personal struggles.

Creepy without being scary, this book made me suspicious of everything and guessing until the end! Quick read and quite enjoyable!

Indie and used bookstore crawl today in #hamont. We set up a little scavenger hunt to find certain types of books which made this even more fun. Loved this day. Not only did we find some great local bookstores and picked up some new books, but we also explored areas of Hamilton we hadn‘t been to yet. #literaryfun

The Baker's Secret: A Novel | Stephen P. Kiernan
post image
Pickpick

I finished the audiobook of The Baker's Secret by Stephen P. Kiernan on my morning commute. Talk about a #gutsyheroine ! The protagonist, Emmanuelle is a baker in a small French village during WW2, and the story follows her trying to keep her fellow villagers fed and alive during the German occupation of her town. I thought this book was beautifully written with strong characters and a powerful message. #bookrecommendations #gutsyheroines

I am always fascinated by books written from multiple perspectives and Kim Izzo does an amazing job at weaving one very intriguing story through several characters viewpoints. If you are a fan of historical fiction and #gutsyheroines I totally recommend this book. Seven Days in May by Kim Izzo.

I just picked this up from the library and have only read as far as the table of contents, but already I‘m in love just from the title of chapter 2. YES!! Thank you Anne Lamont.

It is supposed to snow tomorrow, but today is warm enough to have the doors open and sit outside in the sun. I LOVE winter, but I‘m still going to take advantage of this today and work on Emmy Nation book two in the fresh spring air.

Sunday mornings = audiobook and coffee. I enjoyed this book, it was not too heavy for a mystery which I appreciate sometimes. I also love when audiobooks are read by the author. It feels so personal.

I just moved to a new house and it is such an overwhelming process. I found that setting up a place to get cozy with a book was one of the first things I needed to do in order to feel at home. What is your go to thing to make yourself feel cozy and at home?

Postbox bombs were a common practice for suffragettes in London, along with many other tactics of getting themselves in the public eye. Emmy Nation 2 will explore more of these tactics! Stay tuned for more updates on when you can get a copy of the second instalment of Emmy's story! #emmynationbooks #thesuffragettenation #gutsyheroines
