Top Ten Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme/feature created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by The Artsy Reader

Hooray it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Sorry for missing last week, we had a long weekend for Canada Day and it really messed me up. But I’m back this week and am digging this theme! This week’s theme is Ten Best Books I’ve Read in 2018 (So Far).I’m still new to regularly posting on this blog, so I didn’t know a bi-annual look at what book bloggers are enjoying so far was a thing.

Also fair warning, I’ve only read seventeen books this year (I am WAY behind on my Goodreads goal and it is slowly panicking me) so most of the books I’ve read will be on this list, but what can you do! Continue reading

“Don’t rely on me. Just don’t. I will do what I can, everything I can, but please do not rely on me. Do not give me that responsibility. I will fail” (Armstrong 191).

I absolutely adore Kelley Armstrong. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, probably many times on here and multiple times on bookstagram I know of, but the world needs to know she’s amazing! I was first introduced to Armstrong’s books when I was in high school and read her Darkest Powers trilogy. Since then I’ve read everything I can get my hands on by her, because she’s an amazingly diverse writer ranging from fantasy to young adult and now to thrillers. And it isn’t like Armstrong excels in one genre more than another, she excels in ALL genres!

So I guess it’s time to stop gushing about Armstrong and start gushing about the newest book in the Casey Duncan/Rockton series, which really means I’m not about to stop gushing about Armstrong for the whole review. Continue reading

It’s time for another exciting day of Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s theme is Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me. I love traveling, even though I haven’t been to many places (except around my province), probably the furthest I’ve been is Florida and Disney World. But still, I like traveling to other places and just the act of traveling: planes, trains, and automobiles (hehe) I find it all so relaxing to watch the scenery zoom by. Sometimes I wonder if I enjoy the act of traveling better than arriving at a destination. I guess I’ll just have to travel some more to figure it out! Continue reading

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

It’s time for another Library Loot!

I know, I know, I shouldn’t be taking out any library books when I’m doing the Unread Shelf Project 2018 (and I DEFINITELY shouldn’t have two more books on hold). But that’s how books are you know! You find a new release and you just have to read it. Continue reading

I was given an ARC of the second book in the Casey Duncan series, A Darkness Absolute, to review from the publisher. Since I hadn’t read the first one, I decided to read it first so that I could fully understand the book I was asked to review.

I am now convinced that Kelley Armstrong can write anything. Paranormal teen romance? She’s got you covered. Fantasy? Been their done that. Contemporary? Hell yeah! And now she can write mystery and thrillers. Continue reading

Let me start by saying I love Kelley Armstrong. I love that she is a Canadian author, that she experiments in many different genres, and that she just keeps writing. She has so many books to her name and her stories are loved by many readers, including me.

What I don’t love about Kelley Armstrong are her series. But that isn’t completely true either. Continue reading
