The Fireman | Joe Hill

We just finished The Fireman by Joe Hill! When I picked it up from the library I was a tad worried about what I had gotten myself into. I was pleasantly surprised to fly through all 747 pages in 3 sittings! I couldn't put it down! 📖 I would recommend this book to anyone willing to read it! 5/5 🔥

I'm loving this series! Unfortunately the library didn't have the second book so I skipped right to the third. Either way the book was amazing and I cant wait to pick up book #4 tomorrow after work! 📖❤

Phantom Evil | Heather Graham

I loved this book! I was intrigued the whole way through. The characters are easy to fall inlove with and I fell for the whole Krewe ❤ I love that it's about an FBI special unit with a paranormal twist! I'm pretty excited that this is book 1 of 25 plus. 📖📚

Without realizing this was book #21 in the Krewe of Hunters series I accidently read this one first. It was amazing and I am now planning on reading the series from book #1! I loved Heather Grahams writing style, I was intrigued the whole way through! Can't wait to read the whole series. ❤📚

The Secret Garden | Frances Hodgson Burnett, Jan Fields

I watched the secret garden 1000 times growing up but had never read the book. I loved reading it and getting to experience it as an adult! I definitely had a better understanding of all the characters and how hard every situation would have been. Now I can't wait to re-watch the movie since it has probably been over 10 years! ❤

ClairesReads Oh I was 100 obsessed wth both! Hope you enjoy rewatching the film 2mo
michellelav @ClairesReads the film was one of the only VHS's we owened so it was always on at our house! 2mo

Blackout | Marc Elsberg

This book had me hooked from page one. I had never really thought of how scary it would be to lose power throughout an entire Nation. This book followed a few different story lines, an American journalist, an A class hacker, power plant workers, the milatary, along with others! It showed the impact on everyone within the communities throughout all of Europe. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that comes across it! 😊
4/5 ⭐🌟⭐🌟

Buechersuechtling Yepp, I agree. I remember it very well and felt the same when I read it. A book you never really forget. 3mo
michellelav @Buechersuechtling This book will definitely be staying with me. The author did an amazing job of bringing the story to life! 3mo

I've had this book on my shelf since highschool and finally decided to read it after about 6years. I really enjoyed watching the main character grow so much within the book. It reminded me of myself at her age, trying to rediscover who I was but also fitting into societal norms. Great book, wish I would have picked it up off my shelf when I had first gotten it. ❤📚

The Last Execution | Jesper Wung-Sung

Pickpick

This book was a nice short read. I didn't realize until the second chapter that it was actually translated from Danish! Not only that but it's based on the last execution in Svendborg, Denmark. I would say it's worth the read if you ever come across it!

Going to a French, Catholic, high school meant I never got to read this classic. I am at a loss of words.. this book is beautiful in the most heartwrenching way. I cried, I laughed and then cried again. I loved this book and fell inlove with the characters from page one. Stay gold 💛💚

Melissa_J My daughter read this one this year. She‘s not much of a reader, but absolutely loved it. 4mo
michellelav @Melissa_J It's truly an amazing book! I'm not at all surprised that she enjoyed it but am glad she did! 😁📖 4mo

So I just found a new amazing website called bookoutlet.ca and I impulsively bought 25 new books.. It needed to be $45 or more for free shipping, even more of a reason to go crazy 😍🤓 #WhereWillIPutThem #ImpulseBuy #Excited

It took me about 5 chapters to really get into it but after that I was hooked! This Canadian author tells her story in the most capturing way. It is truly remarkable and kept me at the edge of my seat almost the whole way through. I would recommend this memoir to anyone who comes across it! 📖

RadicalReader @michellelav gorgeous kitty!! What‘s its name and breed? 5mo
TheSpineView I love the look you are getting! ❤🐾 5mo
michellelav @RadicalReader his names Simba! As for the breed I'm honestly unsure, my partners had him since he was a kitten and hes about 14 now. His aunt has Simba's sister but they were from a farm I believe! ❤ 5mo

Waiting for summer so I can go out and read on my deck. This weather makes me want to run, hide and repeat every winter! Instead I'll sip coffee, read and stare down the snowbank that is now about my height.
Ps. My bbq looks like it has a top hat (not photographed) and towers over me now. 😅

Suet624 So much snow this year. I‘m soooo tired of shoveling. 5mo
michellelav @Suet624 It also doesn't help when the weather is -45 and freezes right away! Shovelling is bad enough without frostbite!!! 😅 5mo

michellelav @tpixie It's pretty typical for where I'm from (Northern Ontario) but I dread it every year!! Only plus is getting to make giant snowmen and seeing the excitement on my pups face everytime she goes outside. ☃️🐶 5mo

CouronneDhiver Ha! Yep. We held a memorial for my mum‘s SnowBQ. It‘s buried and gone (until spring) 5mo

I would rate this book 4/5.. I wish I could give it 5 stars because reading it gave me some good laughs and I enjoyed getting a glimpse into the life of Mindy Kaling. I really did feel like I was hanging out with her! With that being said, there were some parts I found hard to get through and I had to read it between books instead of bingeing it like I had hoped. Still a good book and happy I finished it. 😊

This book is the wakeup call every Canadian needs. Indigenous rights are human rights. If you haven't read this book I suggest you do and keep a box of tissues near by.

I just finished the book, put it down covered in goose bumps. I'm sure everyone has read this book due to the hype but let me tell you the hype does not live up to the name. Reading this book I felt every emotion Michelle was trying to portray. Even though the GSK has been caught this book gave me the creeps in every kind of way! 11/10 would recommend.
RIP Michelle, thanks to you the door has been opened, and the GSK has walked into the light.
