EarTHursday #6: “Consumerism Vs. Thrifting”

One of the biggest struggles with living a more ecofriendly lifestyle is not the physical shifts that we can make like getting rid of plastic in our kitchens or using more reusable containers. The hardest thing is to truly change our mindset--this is a big change because we are essentially shifting our view of the world and learning how to live this new lifestyle. One of the bigger mindset shifts that I've started to go through for the past few months is...

Book Review: “Anansi Boys”

I had absolutely no idea what to expect going into this book. I'd recently read The Graveyard Book graphic novel and had enjoyed it a fair amount, though it wasn't a new favourite. I did think that this book would be original and certainly very interesting, which proved to be correct. But, similarly to The Graveyard Book, this also isn't a new favourite. In fact, I have to sadly announce that this review is on a book that I DNF'd (Did Not Finish). However, if you still want to hang around and hear why, then I'd love that!...

EarTHursday #5: “Petitions, Organizations, & Documentaries”

Signing petitions may seem like an activity that is ultimately not very impactful--it is easy to think that our one signature and our one voice cannot truly make a difference in the grand scheme of things. This may be true in some cases, but I still find that petitions have their uses when it comes to the environment. If enough people sign them, then changes could be made in policies affecting the environment as well as in efforts being undertaken to reverse the effects of climate change. Petitions can also...

Favourite Fictional Couples

Welcome back! I've taken a few days off blogging and now I feel much more on track and ready to roll again. Since this past Friday was Valentines day, I decided that this post would be a fitting one to write! This list is compromised of my favourite fictional couples of all time from books, which actually wasn't too hard to narrow down since the only romance books I read are ones that are also fantasy or some other genre as well. Let me know if you love any of these couples too!...

Monthly Wrap-Up January 2020

This is a little late, I know, and my February TBR will be coming out tomorrow, but it is here nonetheless and I have many fantastical things to share! I have quite a long book haul despite the fact that I have this post about some recents additions to my shelf as well, but I've put some of the books together into a classic group for (hopefully) easier reading!  Also a quick announcement is that I am changing my posting schedule again. I've honestly been...

Book Review: “Dangerous Alliance”

As promised, today I am reviewing Dangerous Alliance! I interviewed the author of this novel this past Monday, so you can check that out at this link first if you'd like. Or you could just stay here and read my thoughts on the book, which was my first read of the year!! The suspense had really built up before I read it, as it often seems to with debut books for me, and I'm so glad it didn't disappoint! I think I've gotten better at picking books to read that I will like over the years :P. Anyway, onto the actual review!...

EarTHursday #4: “Period Products”

Alright females of the blogosphere-the day has come for me to talk about how to deal with having your period and being waste-free at the same time!! Most people use one-time tampons or pads, which creates quite a lot of waste over each lifetime. However, it actually seems quite unnecessary to use these packaged products that you can only use once when there are a variety of options out there that could potentially last you your lifetime. I mean in the long run...
