REVIEW: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Most of my reviews this year have been non-fiction as I've been focusing a lot of increasing my understanding and knowledge base. However, half way through the year, I hit a wall. I couldn't do anymore non-fiction, but I wanted to keep trying. Basically, that resulted in me not reading for two months. Last weekend, …

REVIEW: Under the Bridge by Rebecca Godfrey

For this post, I ended up going back into a book that I started with I was younger. In elementary school, I was blessed to attend the Globe Theatre to see the one-woman play The Shape of a Girl. It was incredibly powerful and inspired me to look deeper into the murder of Reena Virk. …

REVIEW: Columbine by Dave Cullen

The last few books that I have read have taken an emotional toll on me. Yet, I find myself unable to stop. The need to consume real, raw material is a call that I cannot ignore. Despite having completed my degree, I am still called to learn more, to educate myself beyond the scope of …

REVIEW: Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman

You might be thinking that this title looks familiar on this blog. You would be correct. In June 2018, after listening to the audiobook and watching the movie, I made a post comparing the two. Considering that books have the ability to include more details than movies, the comparisons are rarely fair. However, it did …

REVIEW: 21 Things You May Not Know About The Indian Act by Bob Joseph

Did you know that February is also Indigenous Storytelling Month? I saw something about this earlier in the month, but for some reason, it did not click until I saw it again at my public library. The good news is that I was already there to pick up a book that would be perfect to …

REVIEW: 12 Days a Slave by Solomon Northup

February is Black History Month, so in order to honour that, I opted to read the autobiography of Solomon Northup that covers the time he spent enslaved. One of things that I am being cognizant of is that Black History should not be confined to a single month of the year, but rather a year …

REVIEW: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Okay, so once upon a time, I fell in love with a movie character played by Keira Knightley. Well, it was probably actually Keira herself, but that is beyond the point. The point is that I have always wanted to read a classic romance novel, but never seemed to have time for it. Until now. …

REVIEW: White Fragility by Robin Diangelo

Hello 2021! Nice to see you after what felt like a century in 2020. Welcome back to all the readers as well, whether you are back for the books or the emotional rollercoaster that was my life last year. In my Top Ten Books I’m Going to Read Once My Degree is Complete, I listed the …
