Tea Time: Perdita

Tea Time: Perdita

Tea: Raspberry Riot Lemon (Teavana) This Mate tea tastes exactly like a cup of Raspberry Lemonade! Sweet with just the right amount of zing, it would definitely make an excellent summer time tea! One of the workers at Teavana mentioned that this particular tea is also great iced, so I definitely plan on mixing myself … Continue reading

Book Review: Fuse

Book Review: Fuse

I literally just finished Fuse about 15 minutes ago, and I’m on such reading high that I couldn’t wait to write my review for it (I apologize in advance for any rambling and excessive gushing)! The second book in the Pure series by Julianna Baggott, Fuse was absolutely AMAZING! In fact, I think it was even more fantastic than … Continue reading

My Growing Dislike of Series

My Growing Dislike of Series

Over the past few months I’ve noticed something about my reading habits. Whenever I finish a book and find out that its in a series I feel a little bit frustrated and annoyed. It’s not that book series are a terrible thing! In many cases I’m ecstatic to find out that a story isn’t done … Continue reading

Tea Time: Fuse

Tea Time: Fuse

Tea: Super Fruit Unity (Teavana) This green tea was recommended to me by one of the workers at Teavana. Containing cranberries, raspberries, sea buckthorn berries, hibiscus blossoms, and rose blossoms, Super Fruit Unity wasn’t quite as fruity as I expected it to be, and the green tea flavour was almost non-existant. In fact, it tasted … Continue reading

Book Review: The Night Circus

Book Review: The Night Circus

If there is one downfall to being a book addict, it’s that I collect books at a far faster pace then I can read them. As my collection of books continue to grow, novels that I had every intention of reading quickly become forgotten at the bottom of my to-read pile. This was the case … Continue reading

Tea Time: The Night Circus

Tea Time: The Night Circus

Tea: Glitter and Gold (David’s Tea) A black tea with hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and orange that taste absolutely magical together! Not only does it taste amazing, the tea is also mesmerizing to look at! It literally shimmers like gold glitter in the light (hence the name Glitter and Gold). This tea was recommended to … Continue reading

Top Ten Romance Novels

Top Ten Romance Novels

In honour of Valentine’s Day this Thursday (and The Broke and the Bookish‘s Top 10 topic this week), I’ve decided to compile a list of some of my favourite romance novels! While none of these novel’s are hardcore Harlequins, they each have a cute and/or engrossing love plot! Narrowing down this list to just ten … Continue reading

Review: The Book Thief

Review: The Book Thief

If there is one great thing about being Canadian, it’s having the excuse to stay in at home with a good book while snowmaggedon wrecks terror outside. As a result, while everyone else grumbled about shovelling snow this past Friday, I celebrated the opportunity to snuggle in bed and finally finish reading The Book Thief. Those … Continue reading

Book Review: The Gods of Gotham

Book Review: The Gods of Gotham

I have a confession to make. When I first purchased my copy of The Gods of Gotham at Chapters, it was meant to be a gift for someone else. After spending an hour trying to select a book for one of my friends, I eventually chose Lyndsay Faye’s bestselling historical novel, and took it home … Continue reading
