Wednesday Words #4 – Save Me

“I needed saving and a good mistake needed making.” – From Waitress The Musical The summer when I was pregnant, I decided to take a solo adventure. My husband was at work, I was on a reluctant sick leave, and I spent most of my days sleeping in until 1:00pm due to severe anxiety andContinue reading “Wednesday Words #4 – Save Me”

Wednesday Words #2 – The Life You Want

“If you can’t appreciate what you’ve got, you’d better get what you can appreciate.” – from Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw Hey there, what are you up to today? Sitting around in quarantine, not doing much of anything? Great, sounds like you have tons of time on your hands to watch My Fair Lady! Enjoy!Continue reading “Wednesday Words #2 – The Life You Want”

The Old & The New

I haven’t written a blog post in a very long time. Mostly because I haven’t had any idea what to do with this space. 2020 was a trying year for all of us, and although I want to believe that I was largely very positive, optimistic and light-hearted, this whole situation has started to grateContinue reading “The Old & The New”

Janille in Paris ~ #ThrowbackThursday + #JNGWatches

I think we’re all feeling a bit of wanderlust right now. I’ve never been a big holiday person, and I certainly wasn’t the type to go on a trip every single year. The inability to travel at the moment, though, has definitely made me feel the itch, the incurable restlessness, to get  up out ofContinue reading “Janille in Paris ~ #ThrowbackThursday + #JNGWatches”

Wednesday Words #11 ~ Saving

Last year at around this time, I would’ve been heading to the theatre to see the musical Waitress. This was my first time seeing a play by myself…my husband was at work, and so I took myself and my unborn son (who I was about 7 months pregnant with) to downtown Toronto. I adored theContinue reading “Wednesday Words #11 ~ Saving”

Pre-Baby Book Reviews ~ #JNGReads

Happy Hump Day, dear Readers! I’m back this evening with a whole bunch of book reviews. I have to be honest, my intention was to hold onto these reviews and post them as part of bigger, themed entries with reviews for a few other books I’m hoping to read soon…but then, it hit me allContinue reading “Pre-Baby Book Reviews ~ #JNGReads”

Don’t Touch ~ #JNGReads

I got Don’t Touch at Chapters 3 days ago, on sale for $1.50. That is both a travesty and a blessing. It is a travesty because Don’t Touch by Rachel M. Wilson is an excellent young-adult novel and it is worth much more than $1.50. So much more. It is a blessing because if theContinue reading “Don’t Touch ~ #JNGReads”

The Persian ~ Le Personnage Principal of A Christmas Fairytale

All signs led to him. “I was immensely interested by this story of the Persian. I wanted, if there were still time, to find this valuable and eccentric witness. My luck began to improve and I discovered him in his little flat in the Rue de Rivoli….I also went into the past history of theContinue reading “The Persian ~ Le Personnage Principal of A Christmas Fairytale”

If We Were Villains ~ #JNGReads

If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio is a unique and engaging mystery novel, but unfortunately it failed to grip me quite as much as I thought it would. It is nearly impossible to say anything about this novel’s plot without including spoilers, so I will keep my summary short. If We Were Villains followsContinue reading “If We Were Villains ~ #JNGReads”
