Book Review: “The Conference of the Birds”

I was pretty excited to read this book, since I've been a fan of the series for several years. When the fourth book came out, I was actually rather surprised because it had seemed like the series was over. I ended up really enjoying the fourth book (almost more than the original series actually) and so this fifth book was one I waited somewhat impatiently for. In the meantime, I reread the first three books, since I was starting to forget what had happened. I loved them even more than the first time I read them! Now I've read this next peculiar novel and I have some mixed feelings...

February 2020 Monthly Wrap-Up

Welcome back to my next monthly wrap-up! It's a few days late again since I took this past week of blogging off (it was very good for my mental health-Take care of yourselves!). This should be an interesting one, since I didn't totally adhere to my TBR (To Be Read) list for the month, but I ended up reading more than I thought I would. I also, as usual, have lots of things to share in the book haul, which I will group into sections again for easier readability!...

Book Review: “Stop Missing Your Life”

NOTE: I received this book for free from BookishFirst and this didn't affect the honesty of my review.  I won a copy of this book from BookishFirst, which is an amazing forum where you can win free books (mainly Advanced Copies) to review! I wasn't expecting to win it necessarily, but I think it was meant to be because I ended up absolutely loving this read despite my normal aversion to nonfiction! Lately I've been trying out more self-help books to read before bedtime and I've actually been really enjoying it. If you have any suggestions, let me know! Now, onto the review!...

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!...

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...
