Bookish Apps and Websites

As a reader, I use a fair amount of apps and websites to try and get the most out of my hobby. Whether it's by logging and tracking, finding something new to read, or granting access to free books. I mean, come on, who doesn't love free books? These five apps and websites are free,... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Hex

If I had a nickel for every time I read a book titled Hex and was disappointed with it, I'd have two nickels. Which isn't a lot, but it's weird that it happened twice. Not only that, but this is the second time I was under the impression said book was one way but turned out another.... Continue Reading →

Autumn Reading List 2021

Finally! Spooky season is almost here! Oh, I adore autumn. In my humble opinion, it is the superior season. The lovely crisp air, the crunch of leaves underfoot and beautiful shades of brown, gold and orange everywhere. Plus, it gives me an excuse to binge read horror novels. Not that I need justification, but it... Continue Reading →

Reading Recap: August

I did it! I hit my 2021 reading goal! I am pretty proud of myself, not just for, well now, beating that goal, but also reading more classics this month. I even gave poetry another shot. This year has not been kind to me in many ways, reading has been one of the few sources... Continue Reading →

To honour the release of Psychonauts 2, I thought it would be fun to recommend some mental stories. I tried my best to find books with that Psychonauts vibes we love so much. Stories about the power of our minds, about psychic abilities and a little pinch of mania. I think I achieved my goal with these four... Continue Reading →

Reading Recap: July

Just two more books to go until I hit my reading goal for the year! I have got to say I am pretty proud of myself. Who knows, maybe I might even read double my target if I keep this pace up. This month I have learned a bit more about my reading wheelhouse, as... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Killing Commendatore

As part of the Reading Glasses Challenge, I need to read a book recommended by a librarian. Does a former librarian of 40 years you meet in your favourite book shop on holiday count?  Sidenote, bookshops are magical. On that day, I kept meeting lovely older women who gave me so many golden recommendations. If it wasn't... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Before the Coffee Gets Cold

Life's filled with regrets. What if I told her I loved her? What if I didn't put off that vital discussion? You will never know since there is no conceivable way to get a second chance. Well, unless you find a particular coffee shop. Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi is a magical realism... Continue Reading →
