What are some of your most anticipated reads of 2019? ✨

Daisy Jones & The Six is one of the books I looked most forward to! I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but I’ve been hearing so many good things and I can’t wait 😍

Happy Sunday! What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading Internment by Samira Ahmed. I’ve only just started but I can already tell it’s gonna be a great story. And honestly it’s relevant and needed right now. But it’s also terrifying seeing this book listed as “dystopian” and “contemporary” at the same time.

Thanks to @hbgcanada for sending me a copy for review!

Happy Saturday! Here are some of my bookish tattoos. My arm is honestly the weirdest one to include in photos but I love it. The dragon tail turns into books that wrap all the way around my arm. It’s the start of what will eventually be an arm covered in bookish tattoos. Next month I’m getting a writing quill on my hand/wrist! 📝

Tell me about some of your tattoos, or ones you want to get!

This cat is living the dream lately 😻

So this is my family’s most recent addition to the family. He was my grandma’s cat but she recently moved into a home and couldn’t bring him. So he’s the newest but oldest of our 5 cats and has made himself right at home. Honestly he spends hours like this a day. 😹

Tell me about your pets! If you don’t have one, what animal would you love to have?

Were you affected by Instagram being down for so long yesterday? 🙋🏻‍♀️

It makes me realize how often I mindlessly check and scroll through social media apps. I picked up a book instead of scrolling through looking at books, but I still didn’t get as much reading in as I hoped. Honestly probably the same amount as if social media had been working as normal, so looks like I can’t blame it for being behind on books sometimes 😂

Anyway, I have a new blog post up today! Link is in my bio. It’s a list of recommended books for Women’s History Month! The list jumps for genre to genre and has some great reads in there.

What books do you want to read during Women’s History Month? 🚺

Happy Tuesday! What are some of your favourite fantasy books?✨

Four Dead Queens looks like it’ll be a book I love. I just received it from @chaptersindigo and I can’t wait to read it. It’s also this months staff pick of the month so you can get extra plum points by purchasing it this month! Honestly I can’t resist the plum point offers and I’m going to break my book buying ban tonight since they have another plum point promotion going on 😅

Do you read graphic novels? If so, what are some of your favourites? 📖

I just spent my morning reading this graphic novel adaption of The Iliad. It was fun! I’m a big classics nerd so I always love new ways I can take in more Ancient Greece. Review is up on my blog! Thank you to @candlewickpress for providing me with a copy for review ❤️

What are your favourite horror books/movies? 💀

Honestly, I’m not usually the biggest horror person which is weird because I absolutely love dark and creepy things. I think I prefer more horror in books rather than movies, but I do enjoy a few. The main horror I’m not into is anything slasher/gorey. I’m currently watching The Haunting of Hilly House on Netflix though, and I’m loving it! It’s definitely more my speed for horror. 👻

I just finished reading Other Words for Smoke by Sarah Marie Griffin which was such an interested dark and twisted YA. Review will be up on my blog ASAP and is on my Goodreads now! 📖

This book comes out Tuesday March 12th! Thank you @hccfrenzy for providing me with an arc for review!

Isn’t this the cutest coffee shop wall?! What’s your go-to hot drink? Here I’m drinking an americano ☕️

I’ve had a great time exploring places in Toronto these past two days. Now I’m just waiting to attend The Triumphant launch event tonight with @penguinteenca where I get to do a Q&A with @lesley.livingston!! Will I see any of you there tonight? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Also to add to my exciting day— I GOT ACCEPTED INTO MY MASTER’S PROGRAM! I got the email this afternoon offering me admissions into my Master’s if Library & Information Science. So you’re now looking at a future librarian 📚

How’s everyone’s week so far? I hope yours is going better than mine 😭

I came down with the flu last night and had to call in sick for work today (which is something I rarely rarely do). I’m hoping it’s just a 24hr thing tho because I’m heading to TO tomorrow morning! I’m feeling better as the day progresses so let’s hope 🤞

Have you read this series? I get to do a Q&A with author @lesley.livingston Thursday night and I can’t wait! If you haven’t read this series yet, I highly recommend it. What’s not to like about a YA historical fiction book set in Ancient Rome with female gladiators?

Happy #shelfiesunday! How did you spend your Sunday? ✨

I usually have Sundays off work but today I worked during the day, but now I’m getting ready to do some reading and then get ice cream with my girlfriend and watch a movie (yes we’re getting ice cream while it’s snowing out 😂)
