Summers Read Part 2

I’m backed up. Not…not in the bowel department. I don’t know why I feel like I needed to clarify that when you’ll see in a minute that I mean book reviews. Either way. Here we are. In The Woods–Tana French This book was total…

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child–J.K. Rowling, John Thorne, Jack Tiffany

I wish I had seen this in play form. This was so interesting and cool! Even though JK Rowling didn’t write the play itself, she did approve of this and it’s based on a short story she wrote. I missed my people. This is…

Mr. Pip–Lloyd Jones

This. This book. Woof. This was a case of judging a book by it’s cover and then not getting what I thought. The cover is a fun looking mosaic of flowers, really colour popping look to it. The actual story is beautiful and colourful…

Through the Storm–Lynne Spears

You read that right. I read Britney Spears’ moms book. The funny thing about that is: 1) I could care less about anything Lynne Spears has to say. and 2) I found this book in a thrift store (surprise surprise) and found a ticket…

Ballroom Blitz

I’ve been pretty busy these last few mon–years. Things have gotten out of control and I’m only JUST starting to patch things together to make them workable. One of those things being writing “reviews”, which at this point they are more or less just…

sTori Telling–Tori Spelling

Okay look…I can’t explain why I picked this one up. I had zero interest in Tori Spelling, her career, or anything that’s ever happened to her. I bought this at a thrift store because I like to read incredibly random biographies now. And this…

Matilda–Roald Dahl

The kid and I, well mostly me, decided to start reading all the Roald Dahl books in his sisters room after I had read the Disney stories until I could barf. (And I love Disney stories.) I basically knew the entire thing cover to…

“Give me a smile”–Keep Moving Forward

I got really amped up the other night because my brain decided that instead of sleep it would think over something that has really been bothering me. “Bitchy Resting Face”. I have it, I know that, I always look unimpressed or super annoyed when…

That Time I Tried

…to give up caffeine. Hahahahahahaha. No. I give up giving up.   This week has been weird and short and long and brutal and yes. Yesterday I made the dumb decision to give up drinking Iced Capps for various reasons (sugar addiction, teeth staining,…

The Short Stack.

Good morning everyone! I’m clearing house of the tiny reviews. So here’s four to take a gander at. Summer of My Amazing Luck—Miriam Toews Literally only picked this up because I knew it was set in the summer. (Book challenge #14-A Book Set in…

KMF: How to Talk To Pregnant Women

Hey guys, did you know there is a new kind of body shaming going on? And it’s directed at super humans? Which seems ridiculous, yes? I am constantly hearing tales of how people are talking to pregnant women and not in a positive fashion….
