TOP TEN TUESDAY | BEST BOOK TITLES

      No Comments on TOP TEN TUESDAY | BEST BOOK TITLES

  This topic is unbelievably cool, because there are so many books I’ve picked up because of either a cool cover or a cool title. I’ve done a few posts featuring some of my favourite covers, but I can’t remember ever highlighting titles. And now I can’t for the life of me think why not! Of course, this means I’m… Read more »

TOP TEN TUESDAY | AUTUMN BOOK COVERS

      No Comments on TOP TEN TUESDAY | AUTUMN BOOK COVERS

  After an uncomfortably hot summer that led to out-of-control forest fires inland and smoke that traveled here, making it hard to breathe (or see very far), it finally seems to be over.

  When I look back over my reading history, there are always some books that stand out as having been difficult – usually because of the length, but sometimes because of the content (or a combo of both) – and that I’m particularly proud to have completed. Often these books are also ones that have had a deep impact on… Read more »

TOP TEN TUESDAY | IF I TAUGHT A CLASS ON FEMINISM…

  I did lots of Women’s Studies classes in College, but I also read a lot of books on feminism, gender and women’s issues outside of the syllabus – and I’ve continued to read and gather books that relate to these topics. Now that I have a daughter to raise, my interest has been revived and I am looking back… Read more »

TOP TEN TUESDAY | BOOKS TO PUT ON YOUR TBR IF YOU MISSED 2016 (LIKE I DID)

  As any of you who have followed my blog for a while know, there was a long gap in my blogging (and reading) life over the past year or so. Which means that not only did you miss me (I assume), but I missed out on everything that was going on in the bookish world. The only plus to… Read more »
