Hello friends! Just dropping in to let you know about my blog hiatus! I’ll be at Book Expo in New York City for the next week and I’m probably not going to get any posts up.

2015 End of Year Bookish Survey!

2015 End of Year Bookish Survey!

Hi all, happy 2016! I’m a little late with the 2015 End of Year Bookish Survey because I’ve been at Disney World with my family. I’m actually still there, but every year I attempt to get Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner‘s End of Year Bookish Survey done and every year I fail. Not this year! I’m doing it from FLORIDA! Read on for my stats and favourites – and let me know if yours correlate. 2015 Reading Stats Number Of Books You Read: 83 plus some novellas and short stories Number of Re-Reads: 10. I’m not very good at tracking re-reads, but […]

2015 Fierce Reads Tour: Recap!

2015 Fierce Reads Tour: Recap!

Sometimes, you go to book events, and they’re good. And then sometimes, like today, they’re great. For the final stop on the Fierce Reads Fall 2015 tour, Leigh Bardugo, Josephine Angelini, Emma Mills, and Leila Sales came up to Toronto to chat about their new books, gush about each other (seriously, they all LOVE each others’ books), and do a signing. After a great lunch with Wendy (A Cupcake and a Latte) , we headed over to Indigo Yonge-Eglinton about two hours before the event. With four authors there, we knew we had to get in early to get seats! Giselle […]

#WaitingonWednesday: The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood

#WaitingonWednesday: The Square Root of Summer by Harriet Reuter Hapgood

I heard about The Square Root of Summer awhile back while perusing catalogues for Spring 2016 (that font treatment is perfection!), but it wasn’t until last weekend’s Raincoast Books Teen Preview that I got super excited. Physics and time travel in books is one of my auto-buy triggers, and the fact that the author wrote a thesis on Dawson’s Creek basically sold me on her forever. Is The Square Root of Summer on your TBR? Are you obsessed with science in your books, too? What are you waiting for this week? Let me know and I’ll stop by! Want to win a Sept […]

GIVEAWAY + #BEA15 Recap: Day 3 & the New York weekend!

GIVEAWAY + #BEA15 Recap: Day 3 & the New York weekend!

Hi guys, this is the last of my BEA15 recaps – phew, I’m exhausted just reliving this. Let’s get to it! FRIDAY We got to BEA early (but not too early) so that Sarah (You Should Read This) could get in line for the Six of Crows signing with Leigh Bardugo. I had extra time, so I went to drop off our suitcase (VERY IMPORTANT TIP), and then ran into Rainbow Rowell, said hi, and hugged her! I knew I wasn’t going to get into her line later on, but honestly, all I really wanted was to do that because […]

(Notso) Personal Friday: YA for NJ starts today! Go bid now!

Today’s post will have a few cute pics of my pets, but I really wanted to spotlight something bigger than myself. I’m talking about Kieran Scott‘s YA for NJ eBay auctions that start tonight. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast of the US earlier this month. A lot of people lost their homes and belongings in floods, especially people in New Jersey.  In order to help with rebuilding efforts, Kieran (author of the She’s So Dead to Us series, the PRIVATE and PRIVILEGE series, and countless other YA novels that I’ve […]

Stacking the Shelves #2: eBooks, EPIC Ontario Book Bloggers Meet-Up haul, and more!

It’s been awhile since my last Stacking the Shelves, huh? If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll notice that I just got a new Kobo Mini eReader, thanks to their Black Friday sale, and I am LOVING it. I also amassed a ton of books since the Ontario Book Bloggers’ Meet-Up earlier in the month, and I’ve been going a bit nuts on NetGalley. Here’s what I got: Bought or acquired myself: From Amazon.ca (thanks to my wonderful future sis/bro-in-law): A Wrinkle in Time Graphic Novel by Hope Larson and Madeleine L’Engle – So glad to finally have this in my […]

Recap: The best book blogging event ever, or the Ontario Book Bloggers Meet-Up 2012!

Recap: The best book blogging event ever, or the Ontario Book Bloggers Meet-Up 2012!

What can I say that that title doesn’t say for itself? This was hands-down the most fun event ever for a newbie book blogger. I’ve never experienced that much excitement and squealing about books. For me, the best part of the Ontario Blog Squad’s 2nd Annual Blogger Meet-Up was getting to put faces to the names of bloggers that I’ve been following for years. Yes, meeting the authors and the publishers was great, but getting to actually talk, IN PERSON with people who love YA and have read the same YAs as me? I CAN’T. EVEN. The raffle table with […]
