Artie and the Wolf Moon by Olivia Stephens is one of the best graphic novels I've read in years... And I think you all should hear about it!

2021 was a busy year! I read over 300 books, finished my degree, got a brand new job in my area of study, and managed to get so much done!

#BookReview Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

Let me tell you a little (not so secretive) secret… I love superheroes. Marvel. DC. All of them. I love it! DC has been a personal favourite since I was a small child, so I absolutely HAD to pick up this series.

#BookReview Creeping Up on Christmas by A.J. Kormon

A.J. Kormon is one of my recent favourite authors for middle grade series. I always love myself a little middle grade read.

#BookReview Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a unique read that really had me hooked. So, first things first… This book can definitely be labelled as "problematic". We have a woman who has experienced some intense trauma (and might have Autism or Asperger's), and doesn't seem to be the most accurate portrayal of this. Now, we… Continue reading #BookReview Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Bentley the Hippo is a delightful book series for young readers. Yet again, Bentley is here with his friends, inspiring children to accept each other.

Welcome to a world of dragons…. I absolutely loved the movie series How to Train Your Dragon. It blew my mind that it was based off a book, and ever since I had been chasing down a copy.
