I think I was expecting something else from this book. I definitely wante expecting the fantasy element which really isn't my thing. Despite that, it wasn't terrible. I really enjoyed some of the characters a lot.
Really enjoying this series. Thought I would post these as my current read is going to take me a while!
Loved this book! Not my typical read, but it was kinda fun with a little spook on the side.
My very first attempt at taking cute pictures with my books. Not nearly as successful as I was hoping, but I'm not a visually creative person, so bare with me!
Just finished this one now at work. It's a story about a couple struggling with infertility, which I thought was interesting, not something I had read before. So, while the topic was unique (to me) I found the characters half baked. I think that's why I have a hard time with books that focus on relationships. The characters should be so much more than their relationships, but they rarely feel that way.
I really suffered through this book, however the end left me super hopeful that the rest of the series might be better. It was really a slow start and a lot of it felt like filler, but the end left a good set up for book two. I'm not sure if I will read on, but we will see how I feel after I finish other books I've started.
To avoid the heat, we went to Chapters. It wasn't that cool in there or else I probably would have ended up leaving with more. Picked up one Canadian author just to keep things balanced. 😊
First week post-surgery has not been as productive when it comes to reading as I thought. Day 6 and only now am I feeling well enough to pick up this book.
So far, I really enjoy the style, but we will have to wait to see where it goes from here.
Sadly, this is new and not one of the books on my TBR pile... hahaha.
Well, what an interesting book! I really enjoyed following Willow's journey to discover her mother's secrets. I like all the unique, quirky characters. I recommend it!
If I would have know I had time to finish this book today I wouldn't have written a blurb earlier. 😋
My TBR shelf is now two shelves, plus some. I'll be off work for two weeks because of a surgery so maybe I can get through a few of them. I'll aim for just four because I'll be medicated.
After a disappointing provincial election, these two are helping me get through my woes. Picked these up for a plane ride back from Boston in the fall and was extremely impressed by them. The story and the art are just stunning.
I was listening to a comedian who was making fun of people who say their favourite book was something they read as a child. He wondered if they had read any books since 5th grade. It made me laugh, but also made me realize that The Outsiders is still one of my favourite books!
Even though I have two other copies I bought this copy last year. It is a fantastic edition. This book will forever be in my top ten.
I have no words to express how much I loved this book and the subsequent movie. It shook me. Stunning and sad.
After his last drinking binge almost kills him, Saul Indian Horse begins his journey of recovery by going back through his history and getting in touch with his roots as a northern Ojibway.
Starting this one tonight, even though I should be sleeping.
Bought it for $1.50, so we will see how it goes!
"We‘re all taught from a young age that there are only two choices: pink or blue, Bratz or Power Rangers, cheerleading or football. We see gender in two dimensions because that‘s what society has taught us from birth. But, are you ready for a shocking revelation?
Society needs to change."
A wonderfully written dystopian set in my home province. After global warming ruins our country people become dreamless, with the exception of the Indigenous people of Canada. The non-Indigenous people want to dream again and they believe the bone marrow of the Indigenous folks holds the key.
This novel mixes glimpses into the past with a look into the future. It is moving and really makes you think about both the past and future.
"It's never love, as soon as you feel the next love. Because isn't that a prerequisite of the condition? That you tell yourself everything that came before wasn't really it."
