It’s that time of year again, the end of June, when we start all the holiday festivals, and the long weekends—we just had one this weekend for St. John Baptiste’s day, and there will be another one for Canada Day next weekend—which all leads perfectly into our own extended holidays. We have the entire month …

As we have already had a similar Top 5 Fantasy in which I listed my top 5 favourite YA & adult fantasy, I thought well, I’m going to talk about my Top 5 favourite Science Fiction reads and then, realised that we’d already covered that HERE and HERE. I’ve also done my Top 5 Authors, done …

I think it’s because I’m missing Christina from over at, Recipe and A Read, and have been thinking about how she shares a great recipe, paired with a recent read. While I don’t have a recent read to share with you, I do have some of my favourite recipes I want to share. Today’s choice …

There’s no contest between my top 5 favourite male characters of recent years, they’re all outstanding, for different reasons. Shanah, over at Bionic Book Worm, is giving us an easy task this week.

You know the stuff, cheese and meats that make your mouth water, artisan-made breads and pastries, fresh fruit and …

I decided to do a series called Author Spotlight, to highlight, well, obviously, my favourite authors—new and old—and to share my excitement for their work with you. First up today is Australian-born author, Karen Brooks. I highly suggest you read her About Page by way of introduction to her, and her writing. Brooks’ first forays …

Shanah over at the Bionic Book Worm has given us an easy task this Tuesday, to list our Top 10 Favourites of All Time. Which, really, when you think about it, is a no-brainer for most of us. And, I’m sure, like me, many are going to have very familiar titles on their lists, that …

Okay people, why did no one tell me sooner about the Sandra Oh-helmed series, KILLING EVE, before now? Late to the viewing game, as the show is now on season 3—something I am soooo happy to read about—me and mine only discovered the show this weekend when we found the DVD for season 1 in …
