Book Review: I’d Rather Be Reading by Guinevere de la Mare

“At first, the other kids in the class – those who hadn’t been brave enough to stand up to Big Literacy – were envious of the freedom that allowed us to doodle at our desks during reading time. But after a few days, something began to shift. We began to get bored. And all the other kids started to be able to do something we couldn’t. They were looking at letters but seeing words. Suddenly they had a superpower, and we didn’t. My days of academic protest were over.”

OwlCrate February 2018 Unboxing: Hidden Worlds

Hello beautiful people!

Okay…slightly better with posting the OwlCrate Unboxing posts. The March 2018 OwlCrate Box hasn’t come in yet, so at least this is being publishing before then! A *bleep-bloop* for me (that’s the achievement noise on the Xbox 360)!

February Wrap Up

Hello beautiful people!

With so much overtime at work, it’s been pretty difficult to read more and focus on blogging. Hopefully, everything will start to simmer down soon and life will go back to a relatively normal pace.

Anyways, this WON’T be a crazy-awesome-fantastic monthly wrap up…but hey, it’s something!

Book Review: Friendship is Like a Seesaw by Shona Innes

“Friendship is like a seesaw.
Sometimes you might feel up in the air
when your friend feels low.
Other times you might feel down,
when your friend is up.
When things are balanced, both friends are happy.”

December Wrap-Up 2017

Hello beautiful people!

Happy New Years Eve!!! I’m so excited for the New Years celebrations to begin; this is definitely typed up in advance, since I’m partying it up in Toronto with one of my closest friends (…who I am also a Maid of Honour for) and a few others!

Though there have been many ups and downs this year, being in the book blogging community has been one of the many highlights of my 2017 experiences. You’re all such wonderful and beautiful people.

So thank you to the people who’ve been blogging for a long time and find the chance to make us newbies feel welcomed, and thank you to the people who are new yet still reach out and make it easier to connect in this blogging world.

Book Review: The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

“If it was true that moss did not have roots, and maternal love could grow spontaneously, as if from nothing, perhaps I had been wrong to believe myself unfit to raise my daughter. Perhaps the unattached, the unwanted, the unloved, could grow to give love as lushly as anyone else.”
