Top 10 Books of 2017

Now that I’ve finished sharing mini reviews of all the books I’ve read this year, I thought I’d wrap up with a list of my top 10 favourites. I read 101 books this year, but a few of those were picture books which I didn’t include. I really just went through and narrowed it down […]

December Reads 2017

I’m really excited to share my favourite book picks of 2017, but first I am going to start off with a December 2017 roundup so I’ll have actually made it through the entire year reviewing every single book I read! But onto that… I was a bit skeptical about Bonfire by Krysten Ritter since it […]

November Reads 2017

While November wasn’t an impressive reading month in terms of number of books, it was a good reading month for quality of books (or at least, I read 3 books I loved, so you can read my reviews and guess which ones), so I’m still happy with it. As long as I manage to read […]

October Reads 2017 Part Two

I shared round one of my October reads a couple weeks ago, but now I’m back with the remaining ones. October was definitely one of my better reading months–it looks like the total was 11 books, and none of them were graphic novels. I haven’t managed to finish a book so far in November, but […]

September Reads 2017 Part One

Well September has not been as crazy of a reading month as I hoped, but I’d say it’s been quality over quantity because I have read some excellent books so far this month! My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella is cute partly romantic comedy about an English country girl, Katie Brenner, who moves […]

August Reads 2017 Part Two

While the second half of August wasn’t nearly as intense reading-wise as the first half (check out part one of my roundup here), I’m still happy with my reading overall! I mean, this is a total of 17 books, which is likely my highest of the year. I am pretty annoyed at myself for how […]

August Reads 2017 Part One

Well, I think it’s safe to say after my June/July reading slump/you know, defending my PhD thesis and moving to California to do fieldwork, I finally got bit by the reading bug again. I actually have to blame readathon vlogs, which I have been loving on YouTube and find super motivating to watch. They definitely […]

June and July Reads 2017

Well, that’s been a hectic few months. First, I traveled for a lot of June, then at the end of the month defended my PhD, then in July I headed to California for 6 weeks for work (still here) and I just feel like reading (and blogging, as you can tell by the fact that […]

May Reads 2017 Part One

Like April, this has been a good reading month so far–thanks again to some cheating with graphic novels–so I decided to split up my monthly recaps into two to keep them to a decent size. That said, I am traveling next week which may mean I don’t finish many more books. But here’s what I’ve […]
