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…
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…

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,”
This is the second part of the post I wrote last Sunday, about those authors you find yourself having to buy their book as soon as it is released. And how more often than not, you read the book so fast, you're disheartened to have to wait so long for another one. My last post … Continue reading I have to have you too!
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
