Like Coming Home

“‘You do not fear. You do not falter.’” – RHYSAND Velaris: my home away from home.  One of the techniques that is suggested as a means of getting through labour and contractions is visualization. You think about a happy place, somewhere you feel safe and warm, and imagine that you are there instead of havingContinue reading “Like Coming Home”

Wednesday Words #1 – Strength in Demons

“Because, ironically, in this moment, as I try to explain the worst of my demons, I’ve never felt stronger.” – from In Pieces by Danielle Pearl Last year when I read the novel In Pieces by Danielle Pearl, these words spoke to me enough for me to write them down. That doesn’t always happen withContinue reading “Wednesday Words #1 – Strength in Demons”

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”

Weekend Recaps ~ Second Chances & New Favourites

Well, well, well has 2020 been a year of change and transformation, or what? It’s no secret on this blog that I hated the book Stalking Jack the Ripper.

Weekend Recap ~ More Surprises All Around…

Other times a book will surprise you because you know you should, by all accounts, love it, but your heart just isn’t in it and you can barely keep your eyes onContinue reading “Weekend Recap ~ More Surprises All Around…”

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”

Sunday Shelfie ~ Upcoming Reads (as Picked by my Hunky Hubby!)

Hello and Happy Sunday, dear Readers! I’m a bit of a book hoarder, I’ll be the first to admit. When it comes to buying paperbacks, I’m a loose canon, and I simply cannot be trusted in a bookstore, surrounded by gorgeous covers and crisp pages. For this reason, I’ve amassed about 35 books in myContinue reading “Sunday Shelfie ~ Upcoming Reads (as Picked by my Hunky Hubby!)”
