Book Review: Saga Boy

When I first came across this book, solely based on the tile alone, I knew I needed to read it, because despite my deep love for books, I do still choose them based of my visceral reaction. Otherwise known as choosing them based on their covers and this one stood out for many reasons. Being…

Book Review: The Poet X

I’ll jump right to it, this is a YA book, so before you roast me on that, I want to fully say some of the most impactful books I’ve read in the last 5 years, have been classed as YA (The Hate You Give / On The Come Up ). All I have to say…

Book Review: Why I Am No Longer Talking To White People About Race

Sticking to my goals, and doing the work, making sure I keep myself updated, knowledgeable and accountable. Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race is one of THOSE books, first published in 2017, but oh so so relevant today and I would almost venture to say it’s vital reading. Written within a…

Neveah’s QnA ( Two Years Later )

It’s been a couple of years since the last QnA with my mini me, so I figured I would put some of this lock down time to good use and ask her some questions. Although, I feel like for many areas she was just indulging me 😃, but it’s all good, she enjoyed filling out…

Book Review: The Beekeeper of Aleppo

I actually came across this book on a photographer’s blog, in which I wasn’t looking for book recommendations, but I found it none the less. I am embarrassed to say that while the unrest in Syria has been going on for decades, it is one of the conflicts that I do not know very much…

Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere

I don’t know if this book needs much introduction, it was the talk of a lot of book clubs when it 1st came out and in some ways for me, it went under my radar, it wasn’t until I read Celeste Ng’s other book, Everything I Never Told You, that I was really taken with…

Book Review: We Have Always Been Here

This book came across my radar this summer, while I was compiling my diverse book list at the same time, I also realized I don’t look to many Canadian authors, particularly Canadian authors of colour. Adding to it- this book was chosen on CBC’s Canada Reads this summer and I was then able to hear…

Book Review: Transcendent Kingdom

This past September, when this book was released, it blew up all over social media and being the book nerd that I am- I had to hop onto the trend to see what the fuss was about. If you haven’t heard of Yaa Gyasi before, you are simply missing out. I realize I forgot to…

Book Review: Hood Feminism

You would have to be living under a rock to not of heard of this book. I’ll admit, reading this, digesting it and then trying to sit down and crank out a blog post on this book, was difficult. Not because of the book itself, but more about how I felt I could discuss/share about…

Book Review: The Water Dancer

Towards the back end of 2019, this book was blowing up the internet on its merit, but also because it was chosen as the 1st book to be part of Oprah’s relaunched Book Club, so of course you knew it would be on my reading list as well as many others. Fast forward a few…
