Book Spines: Hungry Hearts, Winter, The Goldfinch

WWW Wednesday is hosted by TAKING ON A WORLD OF WORDS where in we share our answers to these three questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Hungry Hearts – which I’m enjoying so far. It’s a collection of stories centred on food on Hungry Hearts Row. Winter – Ah, the conclusion to The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I’m a little upset I haven’t finished the series already. The Goldfinch – I have heard great and bad things mostly about writing preferences. So far it’s going ok. […]

Oh How I’ve Missed Lorelai

I remember randomly choosing Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham alongside Anna Kenrick’s Scrappy Little Nobody when I was looking for audiobooks for my commute to work. Our restaurant was closed for a week and I got to work on a different branch which was a half-an-hour drive each way. Talking As Fast As I Can is about how she got started on her career. From odd jobs, to side gigs, memorable auditions, and relationships formed on and off set. Since I’ve never watched Parenthood, the parts that hit me hard were when she talked about her […]

Three Things I Learned In Fixing My Goodreads Bookshelves

A few weeks ago, as I was scrolling through my Goodreads profile, I noticed how dull my bookshelves were. All I could see were a number of “read-in-insert year here” in addition to the default shelves. So I decided to fix it. I deleted my yearly shelves and changed them to something more specific. Listed below are the three things I learned in doing so. Goodreads do count the number of books and pages you read per year. I found this out as I was randomly clicking links around my profile. As much as I wanted to get rid of […]

The Very Last Leaf by Stef Wade

The Very Last Leaf by Stef Wade is an adorable book. We watch Lance Cottonwood pass his classes with flying colours: from wind resistance, photosynthesis to pigment changing. He’s easily the best in his class. However, during his final exams we find out there is one thing he worries about. This is such a great book not just for little kids, but also for adults. It teaches us a few things: We can only be ourselves. We not need to compare us to others as we all have our own unique traits that make us who we are. We are all capable of […]

Life Bits No. 1

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Re-Opening The City Last Monday was the first day of Saskatchewan’s five-phase reopening plan. Some people dread it. I’m one of those people. For the past months, majority of the world’s population have adapted to what we currently call as the new normal as COVID-19 hits us hard. Here in Saskatoon, certain establishments have been closed for a while. Malls have been closed for weeks. Grocery stores functioning at maybe 50% capacity, going as far as having a person at the door controlling how many gets in. Restaurants only serving through drive-thru and delivery service. […]
