Ten books I want to read this summer!

Ten books I want to read this summer!

Obviously, I’m hoping to read a lot more than 10 books by the time summer officially ends in September! But, putting aside new releases and books recently acquired, there’s a bunch of books on my shelves that have simply been sitting there too long – some for a few months, others for years!

Better Reading & Blogging in 2016

I’ve never been much about New Year resolutions (let’s be real, I can never keep them), but this year I’ve been giving a lot of thought to my reading and blogging habits, and where I want to go with it in the next few months.

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril X – I’m in!

  I’ve had so much fun joining the R.I.P. challenge in the past years, I knew I couldn’t pass up on the chance to join again this year. Especially since last year, I ended up taking an unplanned break from blogging right in the middle of it – essentially missing all the fun! This year, no such thing. I’m here, and while I’m posting this a little late, I’ve already started reading & listening books...

It’s YA Contemporary Reading Month!

It’s YA Contemporary Reading Month!

It’s July 1st, and on top of being Canada’s Day (Hurray for you, Canada!), it is also the start of my month dedicated to reading YA contemporaries! So exciting! I have always felt that summer was the perfect time to read them, and I had a great time doing something similar for 2 weeks last year – and the results at the finish line were better than expected! While I doubt I’ll be able to double the amount of reading I...
