When it comes to reading challenges, they typically are contained to a year. Recently, I decided I was going to commit to a challenge that will, most likely, take several years to achieve.  My goal, however long it will take, is to read every one of Agatha Christie's novels. Dame Agatha Christie has to be... Continue Reading →

Reading Recap: July

I hope you have had a lovely July, with plenty of sun and summer vibes. I did, although I spent a good chunk of time hiding from said sun. I am painfully pale and burn so quickly, so I'm not the biggest fan of this season. Hiding away did give me some time to read,... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Elektra

After what feels like forever, Elektra finally became available at my local library! I cherished Saint's first novel, Ariadne. I was beyond thrilled when I heard about her new greek myth retelling.

Holiday Haul

Alright, I am weak when it comes to books. So it should surprise no one that I ended up buying five new novels during my two weeks away in Northumberland. It was a lovely holiday, although the heatwave was brutal. I'm not sure if this is even a topic anyone is interested in, but I... Continue Reading →

Reading Goal Check-In

Fun fact, yesterday was the halfway point of the year! Since we are halfway through this year, I thought it was high timeto check on my reading stats. As of today, I have read 38 books! Meaning I am about halfway towards my reading goal of 70 books. I am rather chuffed with that since... Continue Reading →

Reading Recap: June

Today marks the end of pride month, and not going to lie, but I am a bit sad about that. This year I finally went to a Pride event in my hometown and had a blast (and way too much to drink). I hope you had a colourful Pride too! Once again, my bread and... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Bloodchild

Typically I review full novels, but I just finished a novella that blew me away and I just had to preach about it for a bit. The novelette in question is Bloodchild by Octavia E. Butler. Bloodchild is a short story about a family of humans who live on an alien planet in an isolated community called "The... Continue Reading →
