• 4 Books I’ve Read Recently

    Over the last couple of years, one of my key goals has been to read more, and I’ll admit, it’s one of my favourite goals. I mean, what’s not to love about spending hours absorbed in a different world, especially given the real world we live in, right? Or even non-fiction for that matter – it expands your knowledge and

  • My Plan for Books in 2017

    Some thoughts on my book-hoarding tendencies and reading goals (or lack, thereof) for 2017 I have 6,387 unread books in my house. Okay, okay, okay – you know that’s an exaggeration.

    I might have been AWOL from the blog, but my Kindle and my books certainly saw a fair bit of action in the last three months. Because life was generally so busy (work, travel, home stuff), I wanted books that were fast-paced and easy to read with a bit of an entertainment value to boot! Hence, most of the books in

  • Books Read | February 2016

    After my fiction reading frenzy in January, I made a conscious effort to read non-fiction in February. And I’ve realised that while I can almost always breeze through a fiction novel, non-fiction takes time. I found myself pausing ever so often just to process the information, the language, the message. Sometimes I found myself wishing that I kept a notepad
