My TBR Shelf is out of this world…

How does one tackle 200+ novels??

So it was about 4 years ago that I wrote a second post regarding my Bottomless Bookshelf and at that time, the list finished at 190. I’ve managed to knock a few off of that list, but 1) there are still books on that list I haven’t read, and 2) for every book I read, I seem to purchase 3. I clearly need a sabbatical from work.

Review: We’re All in This Together

We’re All in This Together by Amy Jones

Amy Jones takes family drama to a whole new level with We’re All in This Together. The synopsis is short and sweet, but oh so intriguing: A woman goes over a waterfall; a video goes viral; a family goes into meltdown; welcome to the Parker family. Read more…

Review: The Night Circus

The Night Circus

It only comes at night. With zero warning. It leaves in just the same way. People are left spell-bound at what they see. It is true magic in every sense of the word; from the performers to the structure itself. This is The Night Circus. Read more…

The 2015 Reading Challenge – In Review

Last year, I thought it would be a grand idea to try the 2015 Reading Challenge: a list of prompts that would allow one to read 52 books. In the beginning of the year, I went all out with excitement determining what my reading list would be; I had the books separated from my gigantic TBR shelves and was all prepared to completely blow this thing out of the water. Looking at the 2015 Reading Retrospective, you would think that by having read 102 books, I totally did blow that challenge out of the water. Read more…

Reading Retrospective 2015

Well this year was a busy one regarding life in general; despite that, I managed to have a record-breaking year for reading books! I thought 80 books in 2013 was amazing. Thinking that I wouldn’t be able to come near that, I set my goal for 60. I blew that out of the water by reading 102!! Mind you, a lot are graphics novels (very quick reads for me), and many are free Ebooks found thanks to bookbub.com. Still, a good year. Read more…

I’ll Give it a Shot

1525016_10153392818664834_1809960859506695427_nAlright, I admittedly don’t read a lot of Canadian authors. Every once in a while one peaks my interest. Of course, this time, it has to be possibly the craziest book. Touted to be the best Canadian book of all time, see this post, Atwood also states it’s ‘as plausible as kitchens’, see picture above. I’ll give it a shot. Be prepared, this one is definitely getting a review no matter what.
