Hey guys! I just finished reading an amazing book last night and I can’t wait to tell you guys all about it! This book is called The Girl From the Sea by Shalini Boland and I loved it to bits!

Review: The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

Hey guys! This book review was a bit of a change from the kinds of books I’ve been reading lately. The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict is the story of Albert Einstein ‘s first wife and their relationship. When I read about their relationship, I was super interested in the kind of courtship that they had and all of the newlywed-phase shenanigans. Anyway! Before I … Continue reading Review: The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

Review: The Barefoot Queen by Ildefonso Falcones

Hey guys! I’m beyond excited to write this review for The Barefoot Queen by Ildefonso Falcones. I’m so not used to reading books this long, so it took me way longer than it should have. It ended up taking me almost 2 weeks. Yikes. I mean, seriously. Anyway, in the last blog post, I told you guys that before the hubby and I left town, … Continue reading Review: The Barefoot Queen by Ildefonso Falcones

Review: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Hey guys! So, I have a confession to make. I have a stupidly annoying habit of starting a book and then getting really distracted by newer, shinier books and forgetting all about the original book I started. I’m sure it’s not just me… right? I hope it’s not just me. Sigh. Anyway, I’m glad I got that off my chest. Actually, my confession brings me … Continue reading Review: The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Review: The Only Ones by Carola Dibbell

Hey guys! I was pretty friggin excited to write this review. For this challenge, I read The Only Ones by Carola Dibbell for the book challenge. I was super pumped to read a work of dystopic fiction because there are so many of my personal favourite stories that fall smack dab in the middle of this genre. The characters are always really interesting and the … Continue reading Review: The Only Ones by Carola Dibbell

Review: Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

Hey guys! For this book review, I read Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. I read this book in order to complete the first item on the book challenge, a book based on a fairy tale. I guess this challenge reminded me that I’m just not a fan of fairly tales. The male protagonist is generally … Continue reading Review: Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

Review: Festival Man by Geoff Berner

Hey guys! I went to the library a little bit ago with one goal in mind: Find a book that I could binge-read in one day. Challenge accepted. Obviously, this book had to have very specific characteristics. The book had to be short enough that I could actually read it in a day and awesome enough that I would keep reading it. I really didn’t … Continue reading Review: Festival Man by Geoff Berner
