The countdown to Christmas has begun, so there’s no better time to do a TOP 10 of the Fictional Homes where I’d love to spend the holidays. Without further ado, here I go:

Remember the huge, awesome, magical mansion in which Lena lives? Yeah, I could definitely spend Christmas there. Continue reading “Top 10 Fictional Homes (Where I’d Love to Celebrate Christmas)”
This month, I read John Green’s new novel, and oh my god I loved it so much. If you’ve read my review about it, you know just how much I’m in love with this book.
Fact: My copy is filled with post-its because all the lines in this novel are just too perfect.
So I figured it was worth doing a post of my top 10 favorite quotes in this beautiful novel. Here they are:

It’s October, so it’s only natural that this month my Top 10 is about Monsters and Creepy Creatures in Fiction. These are my favourite, even though some haunted my dreams and gave me the creeps, I can appreaciate their awesomness.

First of all, I’m sorry.
I was not doing very well in March so I just stopped blogging for a while and I skipped a monthly Book Discussion. To be honest, I didn’t think anyone would notice, but I got a few messages from you guys asking me about it, and it totally made my week. Thank you.
Really. Continue reading “Book Club – May”

2016 did not go as well as I’d hoped. Most of the TBR on my list remain unread, and I only read about 40 books in total. Overall, it was a good year anyway, because I read some REALLY great books, which you can have a peek at over here.
But 2016 is behind. Let’s focus on the year ahead! I have three goals for 2017. Continue reading “2017 Reading Challenge”
2016 flew by, and I unfortunately didn’t read as many books as I had hoped. On the bright side, I did read a LOT of great books, and let me tell you sitting down to pick only ten of them was no piece of cake.
Some of them I read during my online Book Club, some are sequels to series I started in 2015 (or 2016). Anyway, here they are:

Hello fellow readers!
So…… I’m afraid my reading slump is swallowing me whole. I keep starting books that I don’t finish and I HATE MYSELF for it but my mind is everywhere lately with a couple of writing projects I’m really excited about and I felt like sharing this.
That being said.
I did finish the book of the month (of course I did, what did you think? That I was a coward? NO! I read it in like two days) and I’m really excited to talk about it with you! So let’s start this!

Half of the year has gone by already–how did that happen, seriously? Six months ago, I challenged myself to read a list of books in my bookshelf that I’ve always intended to read but never do because I buy new ones I’m too excited about. (Sounds familiar?)

It took a while for summer to finally settle here in Quebec, but now that it’s officially here–or at least let’s hope so–I can finally make a list of my To Be Read books for the summer! Some of those titles are also on my 2016 Reading Challenge, (it’s not going so well; I need focus) some are brand new books I can’t wait to begin, and some are just perfect for the summer season. Anyhow, here is the list:
Continue reading “My Summer TBR”
1. Read audiobooks.
2. Take the bus or walk.
Not only you’ll be Earth-friendly, but you’ll be able to use that time to read. (Yes, I read as I walk, it’s a thing. Maybe not on busy streets, but it’s a thing.)
3. Alternate the lenghts of the books.

Not that I’m not a keen reader (I usually read over 60 books per year, which I like to consider an awesome amount, even though I have friends exceeding 100) but there are books on my shelves that I never read, and that I keep postponing because I bought new ones I’m way too excited about. You know the drill. Continue reading “2016 Reading Challenge”
