Wednesday Words #7 – Why We Write

“That’s why writers write–to say things loudly with ink.” TARRYN FISHER I think this is also why tattoo artists tattoo, hahaha! (Speaking of which, I am dyyying to get my next tattoo…lockdown end, pleaseee!) What is there really to say about this quote other than what it says itself?!

Hiya! – Reading Lifestyle Updates

Hello all! It’s me, Janille N G…back and ready to write! I have been remiss the last week, not uploading according to my “regular” schedule. But, that’s because A LOT has been going on at home: some redecoration, lots of growing on the part of my dear little boy, walks to the local park withContinue reading “Hiya! – Reading Lifestyle Updates”

Friday Recap ~ Subpar & Surprising Sequels

Hello and Happy Friday! In today’s recap of this weeks’ reads, I take a trip down memory lane and revisit two of my least favourite books of all time. That’s right, for some insane reason, I decided to push myself to read the sequels to two young adult novels that absolutely infuriated me, Anna andContinue reading “Friday Recap ~ Subpar & Surprising Sequels”

Friday Recap ~ My New Book Lover

Another week has come and gone, and with it another read. Be still my frantically beating heart…I read a real doozy this week! You probably already know, if you read a lot of my posts, that Karen Swan is one of my all-time romance writers. I have adored her work ever since I picked upContinue reading “Friday Recap ~ My New Book Lover”

Summer Sunday Reading Recap

A consolidation of some of my recent reads in case you need a sunny Sunday recco… To Have and to Hoax by Martha Waters Perfection!!! This book was everything.
