The Fury by Jason Pinter

The Fury by Jason Pinter

The Fury by Jason Pinter My rating: 4 of 5 stars My first book written by Pinter and I didn’t need to read 1-3 of the Henry Parker series to understand and enjoy it thoroughly. I rated it 4 stars because I was appalled by the lack of editing – an example includes using “meet” […]

The Heist by Jason Lawson

Jason Lawson is a New Brunswick author I will always be eager to read as the only guarantee from his stories is greatness. Sometimes there is a lot of humour, other times history and sometimes, like in The Heist, fast paced adventure that had me hooked from the first scene. Sarah was waiting for the […]

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel My rating: 5 of 5 stars I hesitated giving 5 stars only because I wanted more. Not my usual genre of choice, I read this for a book club and really quite enjoyed it. The twists through time and tragedy, through a plague and before the plague, characters […]

Oakwood Island: The Awakening by Angella Cormier and Pierre C. Arsenault

While this is the sequel to Oakwood Island, it has been awhile since I read the first book and it all came flooding back.

We Will All Be Received by Leslie Vryenhoek

We All Will Be Received by Leslie Vryenhoek My rating: 5 of 5 stars I had no idea what to expect but, as cliche as it was, was hooked immediately. The characters were real, the setting of Newfoundland was brought to life and the story, while hopefully extreme in some cases, was overall very sweet, […]

Feck Perfuction by James Victore

Feck Perfuction by James Victore

As the title implies, this book is about being creative, forgetting being a perfectionist and just doing! Here is my Goodreads review: Feck Perfuction: Dangerous Ideas on the Business of Life by James Victore My rating: 5 of 5 stars Absolutely what I needed to read right now, for personal as well as professional gains.

It’s Elf Time…

In the houses of many, December 1st doesn’t just mean it’s closer to Christmas, winter, or the change of the month it’s Elf Arrival time. While I adore the creativity behind each story and it gets people talking about traditions which is lovely, who has the time?! My son, now 10, has been asking for […]
