Book Trailer Thursday

I just discovered book trailers recently while looking for content for my blog. What am awesome discovery! It’s fun to have images to go along with the book; not that I haven’t created mental images of my own while reading but still! I have a feeling trailers are going to become another obsession of mine. […]

Musing Mondays (1)

Hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.This week’s musing asks: Do you prefer hardcovers, trade paperbacks (the bigger ones), or mass market paperbacks (the smaller ones)? Why?

Review: Alpha by Rachel Vincent

WOW! The finale to this series was all I hoped it would be and more! This book was pretty intense! I laughed, I cried, I got angry… it was quite the emotional roller coaster. Rachel Vincent nailed it! Her writing pattern seems to be a kick ass book followed by an okay one and so […]

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!

I don’t think I’ve ever been to Kingston in the fall; it’s beautiful! Seeing all of the multicolored leaves surrounded by historical buildings […]

Prey by Rachel Vincent

This book was amazing! I can’t believe that it’s taken me this long to get around to reading it. It probably took me until now because Pride wasn’t very memorable and left me on the fence; undecided on whether or not I was going to continue with the Shifters series. Boy am I ever glad […]
