The book is not only about gastronomy but a celebration of what Chez Mathilde is and the people and place behind it. The photography is amazing (and believe me, I know amazing photography).To get lost in this raindrop click for more
Do I know Canada ?
Let’s see?, For the most part, I think I do. It’s a big country with a lot going on. I probably need a little refresher course.
Deer Life is full of whimsy and delight. It is the perfect book to get lost in when you want to hide away from the world. Also, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a grown up reading a fairy tale ! Come to think of it, I think that should be printed on a T-Shirt.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
This is not only the story of Richard Dadd but also of Charlotte Brontë and Charles Dickens. I knew relatively little of Bronte and Dickens and absolutely nothing about Dadd. I was like a fresh canvas ready to absorb all there was to learn.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
I’d like to think I picked out The House on Selkirk Avenue because I wanted to read something set close to home. Perhaps, The House on Selkirk Avenue chose me. It turned out to be a read that was certainly introspective. If I would have read this book in my 20’s, I don’t think I would have liked it yet, approaching my mid 40’s… I connected with Kate in so many ways.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
Sometimes you challenge yourself with a book that doesn’t fit in your normal genre or goes beyond what you know in your everyday; Selection Day by Aravind Adiga was exactly that for me.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
I’ll be the first to admit that the title of this book and the cover art are what hooked me. I’m bringing you this review a little late but since Ruth Ware is coming out with her third novel The Lying Game quite soon you may be interested in reading The Woman In Cabin 10, that’s if you haven’t already.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
It’s not easy for me to write about myself, it doesn’t come naturally. I’m going to push myself from time to time to bring you [No Umbrella Required]; snippets of who I am. So here we have my first post on how books have become somewhat of my personal shield.
If you ask people why they enjoy reading they might tell you that they love to be transported to a different place in time, that they read to relax or even use reading as a sleeping aid. I read for a whole lot of reasons but only recently have I twigged on how books have become my shield.
For a first timer, I think it went rather smoothly. My goal was to finish the book I was currently reading and complete at least two books in my Canadian reading list. Done, Done and DoneTo get lost in this raindrop click for more
Being my first Lucinda Riley book, (and book 3 in the series) I didn’t know what to expect. Stepping into this book basically blindfolded, I was unsure if I’d find myself fully immersed. Boy, was I wrong ! This is a novel that kept me from chores, from making myself lunch, I may have even been late for an appointment as well !! You absolutely don’t need to read the two previous novels to get lost in The Shadow Sister.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
