Yes, Yes and Yes to From Showing Off to Showing Up by Nancy Regan

Yes, Yes and Yes to From Showing Off to Showing Up by Nancy Regan

From Showing Off to Showing Up: An Impostor’s Journey from Perfect to Present by Nancy Regan is not just a book – it’s an experience. And oh what an experience it was for me. If you have read my previous two most recent blog posts, you know this book poked holes, and wholes, into memories […]

The Power of Literacy

The Power of Literacy

If you know me at all, it comes as no surprise that I love books, reading, writing and promoting them. I also have a son who goes by “Wild Willie” for his book review YouTube channel. Nova Scotia is also our home. So… volunteering for River John, Nova Scotia’s Read by the Sea Literary Festival […]

Five Stars for James Mullinger

Five Stars for James Mullinger

Brit Happens: Or Living The Canadian Dream is much more than a story of a boy who found love and his home in Canada. This is a story of a dream, many risks and some obscure rewards. I loved this book, not because of being familiar with the names dropped throughout but because it is […]

Book Review of Good Burdens by Christina Crook

When I think of burdens I imagine a long list of daily chores, mundane tasks and must-do’s, too often prioritizing them so regularly it’s just automatic. These nuisances that take time and energy to complete are always there – groceries, laundry, dishes, school lunches – and I always dread them. How can I make them […]

Money Like You Mean It: Personal Finance Tactics for the Real World by Erica Alini

A book by a Canadian author that should be taught and discussed in all schools in our country. It was wonderful to have a book focused on Canadian methods as so many are focused around the American way. While admittedly quite knowledgeable when it comes to the financial world, Alini was able to teach me […]

Poles Apart by Canadian Author Terry Fallis

I have never loved a story as much as felt frustrated by it in the same way as I did with Poles Apart which just makes me like it even more. A story about a male feminist who is fighting for equality through his words. A freelancer, only child, son of divorced parents and someone […]

Dying Season by Rebecca MacFarlane

I am so happy to celebrate the relaunch of Canadian author from New Brunswick Rebecca MacFarlane with Dying Season. After putting writing aside for a bit to focus on her family, MacFarlane has a plan to emerge with a punch and this book packs a lot! The premise of the story line, a virus that […]

Reality and The Positive Power of Perspective by Aaron Bethune

When I first learned about the Bethune family through an article printed in Ah! At Home on the North Shore I knew I needed to reach out. Life, especially over the past almost two years, hasn’t been easy for many of us, so being introduced to a lovely family through Calligraphy was welcome. The article […]

Rise! A Girl’s Struggle for More by DiAnn Floyd Boehm

Immediately I was drawn to the story of Ruby and her determination and confidence we should all be eager to have, not to mention her reading nook and love of books. In Rise! A Girl’s Struggle for More, we are brought back to life in the 1920’s and the balance of accepting and questioning societal […]

Three for Trinity by Kevin Major

The third part to the adventures of Private Investigator Sebastian Synard, Three for Trinity delivers intrigue, reality, drama and Newfoundland to the reader. Like many, I read to escape the chaos that is reality, to go to a place and relax in the mystery even if just for a few minutes. While I was hooked […]
