Book Haul: Spring Releases 2016


It’s been a few months since I’ve last done a book haul reveal. Life threw me a few curve balls. If you’d like to know about what I’ve been up to and a little update on what’s coming up next on my website, read it all here: Throwing Myself Back Into The Blogging Scene. Continue reading

Book Haul: Winter Releases 2015


Snow has finally arrived in my part of the neighbourhood! While it would have been wonderful to have snow on Christmas day, it’s better late than never. Living in Canada, I, as well as other Canadians, love their seasons and I was starting to miss the snow. Winter isn’t really winter without a little white on the ground. Now is the best time to curl up on the couch, sitting by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows alongside a good book.

The Penguin Hotline & My Favourite Book Recommendation


Sometimes, the best books are the ones that you haven’t discovered yet. I’ve been a reader and book lover for as long as I can remember. While I am picky about the books I read and trust my own judgments about which ones I’d like to read next, I do welcome book recommendations, especially from trusted book nerds such as myself. At times, it’s a hit and miss. But when someone shares a gem, it’s a wonderful experience to become a fan of a book other people have grown to love too.

This December, the Penguin Hotline asked book bloggers: what was the best book that has ever been recommended to you? Continue reading

Book Haul: Fall Releases 2015

While blockbuster movies’ time to shine is during the summertime, Fall is a big deal in the book publishing industry. During the autumn season, all the highly anticipated books are released. Tons of readers, book lovers, and bloggers eagerly await for the books they are most excited for. I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on early copies of some of the great books coming out this Fall.

Here are the books that are now calling my shelves home:

Book Haul: Building My Library: Spring Reads


Building My Library is my personal weekly book haul meme. I share the books that I’m adding to my reading collection. This will include: books I buy from the store or online, borrow from friends or the public library,  advanced reading copies (books for review), gifts, audio books, and ebooks.

Spring is here! Or, so says my calendar. Do you know what that means? Time for some Spring/Summer reads! The buzz has already started for some titles, and so far, I’ve managed to get my hands on a few of them from publishers and bought some books that I’ve just been dying to read too.

Here are the books that are calling my shelves home this week:

Received for review from

Veronica Mars: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham

The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton Continue reading

Book Haul: Building My Library: Birthday Edition

Building My Library is my personal weekly book haul meme. I share the books that I’m adding to my reading collection. This will include: books I buy from the store or online, borrow from friends or the public library,  advanced reading copies (books for review), gifts, audio books, and ebooks.

As you can tell by the title of this week’s Building My Library post, I’m celebrating my Birthday today! I think the best kind of gift someone can always give me is a pile of books. Then again, a gift card is technically better because I’m super picky about the condition of the books I add to my collection. Maybe for some people that’s weird, but I know that other book people, and myself included, take pride in our book collections. Yes, I’m that book nerd that examines each copy of the same title to find the undamaged, perfect one. I take my books very seriously! Continue reading

Penguin Canada’s Daily December Delights: An Advent Calendar for Book Lovers


Advent calendars are a running tradition in my family and it is a fun way to countdown to Christmas. The most common one is opening the tiny doors to little treats of chocolate. This year Penguin Canada is helping book lovers celebrate the holidays with their Daily December Delights holiday campaign.

Every day you can check their website, clicking on the appropriate day to find a different featured book as well as enter for prizes, exclusive giveaways, and partake in fun trivia and quizzes. Visiting the website often allows you a better chance to win their grand prize too – $750 worth of books!

I can definitely build a mini library for myself with that much.

The campaign runs from December 1 to December 31, so you have loads of time to enter to either expand your own book collection or win a few prizes for the book lover in your family.
Join the discussion on their social networks, using #PenguinDelights.

Leave a comment below if you countdown the days of Christmas with an advent calendar or share some traditions you enjoy doing during the holidays.
