Edward “The Boss” Rochester

I’ve just finished re-reading Jane by April Lindner – it’s the height of summer here in Toronto, the days are long and stiflingly hot, and I felt like I needed a sizzling romance to get me through long days at work and exhausting train rides between my home in the suburbs and the excitement ofContinue reading “Edward “The Boss” Rochester”


I’m practically in literary mourning at this moment, and I couldn’t wait to write a post until tomorrow! I’ve finished Wedding Night and Sophie Kinsella has once again left me both satisfied and devastated – the novel was hilarious and brilliant as usual, but I’m so sad that the story of my new ridiculous andContinue reading “Kinsella-ite”

A Man to Marry

It’s time for a much-delayed update and I think it’s also time to reveal a very special part of my “personal archive”. I mentioned in my first blog post (Salutations!) that I wanted to be able to post some more creative reviews of my favourite literary works. I came up with this idea because IContinue reading “A Man to Marry”

Rainy Summer Romances

It’s a holiday here in Toronto and it also happens to be an incredibly rainy, what most people would describe as dreary day.

I attended the National Ballet of Canada’s production of Romeo and Juliet at the Four Seasons Centre. I had been to TheContinue reading ““For never was a story of more woe…””

Green Eyes = Happy Hearts

I wasn’t going to write a review of the book I just finished reading, Sundays at Tiffany’s by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet, but the subject matter of the novel was strangely similar to a certain short story I wrote after first year university. If you’ve read the other pages on this site (specifically TheContinue reading “Green Eyes = Happy Hearts”

A Little Fun is Always JNG Approved!

Hello again Everyone! I’m going to keep this post extra short and snappy because…okay, I’ll be honest, I’ve got a bit of a new obsession that I’m having difficulty dragging myself away from! I mentioned that I’m a fan of all sorts of adaptations of my favourite novels, and I really mean that – I’mContinue reading “A Little Fun is Always JNG Approved!”


And thanks for joining me on this literary journey! I’m beyond excited to finally be starting this blog and to have a chance to write about all the aspects of literature that I adore, from particular chapters to large chunks of classic novels, to specific characters, to film and other artistic adaptations and interpretations.
