Renewed Excitement: Volume One

I stole the idea for this posting from my friend Chelsey at Chels and a Book! Chelsey noticed that the excitement that she felt upon first purchasing a new book often ebbed away after having it sit on her shelves for months on end. Like Chelsey, I always buy a book with the best intentions … Continue reading

Authors Are My Rockstars

It’s time for another Bookish Confession: Authors are my Rockstars. This realization first dawned on me when I attended a book signing for Rainbow Rowell in Toronto last year.

Tea: Chocolate Macaroon (David’s Tea) Nom, Nom, Nom! Talk about a tasty tea! Chocolate Macaroon is (or rather…was) David’s Tea of the month for May!
