Before We Were Strangers: Review

Before We Were Strangers: Review

I first picked up Before We Were Strangers during the lazy summer days of August. Suffering from a Summer long reading slump (which may or may not have been due to my anxouisness for the Summer to be over and for University to begin) I was constantly looking for new releases to read in hopes of kicking my reading slumps butt. Before We Were Strangers did more than just kick my reading slumps butt, it forced me to stay up all night and completely devour it. Before We Were Strangers is for all intents and purposes, a second chance love story. Now, […]

F*ck Love: Review

F*ck Love: Review

I naturally gravitate to Tarryn Fisher whenever I want to read a romance that is both achingly beautiful and unbelievably depressing. The girl knows how to break her readers hearts. There is no doubt about it. Her previous book, Marrow, was her first non romance heavy book. Instead Marrow was more of a dark thriller. While I really enjoyed Marrow, I finished it still very much craving that angsty romance i’ve come to associate Tarryn with (look at me–using first names, i wonder if she knows we’re secretely bestie?). I went into F*ck Love thinking I was finally going to get my messy […]

Books I’m Most Excited for in 2016

Let me start this post of by wishing all your lovely followers a happy 2016. May you all kick 2016’s ass, I know you guys can do it. Going into a new year is always super exciting. People make resolutions, receive new years kisses, and (most importantly) start compiling a list of 2016 must reads. Obviously. So, after careful consideration and some serious goodreads stalking, crying, more goodreads stalking and more crying (my bank account is going to be drained by the end of the year), i present you, my list of (some) highly anticipated reads for this year.       […]

Reasons Why #Girlboss Needs to be Your Next Read.

Reasons Why #Girlboss Needs to be Your Next Read.

#Girlboss is not a rags to riches story. In hindsight, I can imagine people describing Sophia Amaruso’s story that way–but i’m just not having that. No, the story that belongs to the kickass founder, CEO and Creative Director of Nasty Gal (who at the time of publishing her equally kickass book was just 29) is a story of incredible work ethic and sheer passion. Seriously. Sophia Amaruso makes it quite clear in her book that she doesn’t want you to say she was simply “lucky” because her business succeeded and to be quite honest, i’m not all that happy with that word […]

{Blog Tour} Long Way Down: The Addicted Characters and Harry Potter Classes

{Blog Tour} Long Way Down: The Addicted Characters and Harry Potter Classes

There are so many ways I could start off this introductory sentence for today’s blog tour stop, but I feel like everything I want to say fails to translate just how bittersweet editing this post for all of you was. I think it’s safe to say that you (like me) find the Addicted and Calloway Sisters series to be one of the best series we’ve ever had the chance to read. There is so much I can say about how much I love these characters, these ships,as well as their struggles and their triumphs. Yet I think that at this point, nine […]

Hollywood Dirt: Review

Hollywood Dirt: Review

Alessandra Torre’s books have become a staple in my kindle bookshelf. The woman can write. Suspense, thrillers, romance, taboo subjects, sexy times….yeah, that’s what she’s always just been for me. I expect the unexpected when I read Alessandra Torre’s books, but even I couldn’t have been prepared for the shocker that was Hollywood Dirt. Hollywood Dirt is easily Alessandra Torre’s most reader friendly book. Alessandra Torre avoids the taboo subjects when it comes to her newest novel. Instead she delivers a simple story about a small town girl falling for the biggest movie star in Hollywood. Very vanilla if you ask me, […]

An open letter to Leah Raeder, for the awesomeness that is Cam Girl.

An open letter to Leah Raeder, for the awesomeness that is Cam Girl.

Dear Leah Raeder, Over the past year I’ve asked myself various questions about gender. From questions like: What is gender? Is gender simply a social construct? Are we more than our anatomy? To more philosophical ponderings on questions about both gender and love. My personal favourite happens to be: “Do we fall in love with someone’s gender or their soul?” I have always, for the most part, been comfortable in my own skin. That doesn’t mean I’m one hundred percent happy with how I look, how I feel, or how I’m perceived by the world 24/7. That, unfortunately, does not exist. I get […]

Where I went and What I’ve done–University Life

Where I went and What I’ve done–University Life

Hey guys, if you follow my reviews, Instagram feed or tweets you’ve probably noticed that I haven’t been around much, especially this past month. I promise–I haven’t completely forgotten about the blogging community or all the amazing people who are a part of it, i’ve just been, literally, readjusting my life. What do I mean by this? Well, at the start of September I moved to the other side of Canada (Vancouver to be exact) to finally begin my post secondary education at UBC (I’ve got a few pictures of my campus below!). As you can probably image, moving to the other […]

Made You Up: Review

Made You Up: Review

A few weeks ago I had the lovely opportunity to interview Francesca Zappia for Canadian Mental Health Awareness Week. The interview was one of the most personal ones that i’ve ever done since i opened up about my thoughts on mental illness and it’s depiction in the media. I admitted to not being personally affected by someone else’s mental illness, but still having strong feelings towards the topic. Because of my thoughts, I was eagerly anticipating Made You Up for the sole reason that it seemed to shine a different light on mental illness. Made You Up is by no means a […]

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda:Review

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda:Review

Simon Spier, Can we please be bestfriends?  Witty, quirky, sarcastic, and intelligent, Simon Spier is the one person you want in your life. He’s also got perfect grammer (impossible, eh?) and a penchant for oreos. Of course, he’s not perfect. He may sometimes be clueless and make certain choices that make you want to punch him in the arm, but his flaws are just what make him more authentic as a character. They’re what make you want to be his bestfriend. “Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it shouldn’t be this big awkward […]
