When I go home (to Saskatchewan) for any occasion really, we always find ourselves going to the Chapters, before we drive the two hours to my hometown. It is pretty much one of our favourite things to do while in the “big city”. While we were there just before Christmas, I found myself perusing the … Continue reading How to Hang a Book Cover…
As in back in action! (Get it? Of course you do *insert eye roll here*) I know pitiful. Here we are in 2018 and our first Who Wore it Best Wednesday will bring us back to one of my favourite authors (as you well know): Jane Austen. Over the holiday I was lucky enough to … Continue reading Back in Austen!
The holidays are not just about the family traditions but about the memories which can last a lifetime. One such memory for me, was watching a ballet performance of The Nutcracker inspired by E.T.A. Hoffman’s work. I was in University at the time and went with my sister. It was one of those moments where … Continue reading You can’t forget The Nutcracker!
I was going to come across a book I really wanted to use for Who Wore it Best Wednesdays and as I searched the editions on Goodreads, I was going to be met with only one real cover. (Insert disappointing dun dun dun duuuuun!) (Or however you spell it.) This month as you know I … Continue reading I knew it was going to happen…
Welcome to the first holiday edition of Who Wore it Better Wednesdays! This week I am bringing probably the first book which comes to mind when you think of a Christmas Classic: A Christmas Carol!

This past weekend I was at a Christmas Bizarre for a possible future school for my nieces, and I was pleasantly surprised to find they were selling some of their library books. I overheard the librarian telling a parent how … Continue reading Oh the memories
Austen novel battling it out on the literary red carpet today: Northanger Abbey! Did you think I was about to say Mansfield Park? Never! Sadly Mansfield Park is probably my least favourite Austen novel but we will not get into that today. (If you love it dear reader please comment below on why it makes … Continue reading It’s my second favourite…
Alert! It is another week and again I am a proud Canadian with the next author we are discussing. Not only are the covers inspired by L.M. Montgomery’s series Anne of Green Gables absolutely beautiful, but they manage to capture the beauty of the province Anne lives in. I have always hoped to read the … Continue reading “Dear old world,”
I know I cannot do a Who Wore it Best Wednesday without including an author who changed the fantasy game. I did not read these fantastical novels till I was in University, where I devoured ALL of them within a month, studies be damned. When you think of all the work which went into these … Continue reading The Story That Changed Us All
The answer is and always will be N-O (in capitals!). After starting this blog I have become aware of how much fantasy novels I read growing up. I have always had an active imagination and now I can pinpoint just the books that helped it grow. I have already mentioned how important this previous book … Continue reading Can a person like fantasy too much?
