Hamlet retelling where Hamlet is a girl? Yes please!

The Cake House has been on my TBR pile for at least four years and was a surprisingly hard book for me to find. Not online, it’s easy enough to find on Amazon. But I was never able to find it at my library or at Indigo/Chapters which surprised me. Luckily I got it as a birthday/Christmas gift and made it one of my first reads of 2019 and it did not disappoint! Continue reading

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

Happy Top Ten Tuesday bookworms, I hope it’s been terrific so far!

This week’s theme is Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach. Now bookworms, I love reading, every book blogger does, but I cannot read by a pool/beach. It’s not like I’m afraid of getting the book wet or anything like that, it’s that if I’m near water then I’m swimming in it! I just love swimming too much! The idea of sitting on a deck/beach reading when I’m so close to the water is just mind boggling to me, but you do you!

TW: Rape/Date Rape.

This book is heartbreaking, but it’s also hopeful. Johnston packs a lot into a tiny book, her specialty, creating a story full of trauma and love and connection that is necessary on everyone’s bookshelves. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday

Top 10 Tuesday

Hello bookworms! It’s Top Ten Tuesday and that’s always an exciting thing in the book blogging world!

This week’s theme is “Characters I Liked That Were In Non-Favourite/Disliked Books.” I only managed to think of six since I can be pretty harsh with the books I dislike. If I dislike the book I usually dislike the characters to, it’s an all or nothing scenario. However, I did think of six characters I liked from books I wasn’t crazy about. I’m curious to see your comments on what books I disliked! Continue reading

Web Series Wednesday

Hey Posies! Sorry for the bareness of this blog for the past week (and forgetting to post last week’s episode!). I made a portfolio for myself for jobs and such, so that took a bit of organizing.

In this week’s episode, Detective Rosie’s on the case to find out who knows about Ricky and Juliet.
