Aphonic’s Bookish Christmas Card Project

a-little-startruck

  Christmas is coming! Soon, Christmas will be upon us and I'm so excited! Christmas is a big deal in my house. I love having all of my girls together, celebrating the season and indulging in some wonderful Christmas movies! This year, for some people, Christmas might not be as happy and cheerful as it should be. I know A LOT is going on in the world, and a lot of people are scared. Our world seems to be in chaos lately and it breaks my heart to see so many of my friends and followers on Twitter dealing with so much. That is why I have started this project! I'm horrible with names, which is why I'm calling this 'Aphonic's Christmas Card Project!' If...

  Before I even get into how incredible this book is, and how much you need it, I need to send a HUGE thank you to Jamie over at Books and Ladders for giving me the opportunity to read it. Jamie has one of my favorite book blogs, and she's an amazing friend. I'm truly lucky to know her. Most of you already follow her but if you don't, you need to. Over on my Twitter, I used the word perfection to describe this book but if I'm being completely honest, there is no word I can think of at this very moment to describe just how phenomenal this book was. I have quite a few books on my TBR for the end...

The Wangs Vs. The World

I was provided an arc of this book from the publisher. This in no way affects my thoughts or feelings on the book.   This has to be one of the most delightful and humorous books I have read in a long time.  It's interesting to see the world through the eyes of someone who is of a different decent then you are. I'm a big supporter of needing more diversity in the books we read, so when I read the description of this book, I knew I had to jump at a chance to read it.   It was completely engulfing and captivating.   This book really took you on a roller coaster ride. You see the Wangs being on top of the world, an...

Sunday Street Team – An Interview with Kathleen Glasgow

24879132

  As most of you know, my blog focuses on not only books but my struggle with mental health.  Both subjects are important in my life. I feel it's so important to bring awareness to not only young adults but everyone about mental health and the impact it can have. It's something we should be open and welcoming about. It's nothing to ever be ashamed of. When I was offered a chance to interview Kathleen about her book 'Girl in Pieces', I knew I had to have her on here. This book has been preordered for a while, and I'm awaiting it's arrival into the world in 9 days. I can't wait to add it to my growing list of amazing mental...

Sunday Street Team – Saving Montgomery Sole

SavingMontgomerySole_blogtour2 (1)

  After this review, take a look below at the giveaway! It was an honor to read and review this book for Pride Month! A lot of people close to me know this but I am pansexual. It's very important to me to spread love to those who struggle with their identity as we all know how difficult it can be to find yourself as you're growing. Since my girls were very young, we've always taught them that love is love. They know it's acceptable for a man or woman to love whom they choose. I'm so proud to be Canadian where it's accepted so much up here. It makes me even more proud as a Canadian to know a pride flag...
