Chick Lit Tag, 2017

Chick Lit Tag, 2017

I’ve decided it is time- time for a chick lit tag to inspire us fans to share our favourite books, discover new authors, and share the chick lit love that is lacking in the book world! Many will pooh-pooh at chick lit and dismiss it […]

Chick Lit Recommendations for the Summer

Chick Lit Recommendations for the Summer

I’m a bizarrely intense reader. I’ll read fiction, mysteries, history, fantasy, biographies, cozies, humour, you name it. A lot of people criticise and mock chick lit as a genre for being fluffy and flip. However, sometimes I want to read a book to escape from […]

The last book of 2015 and the first books of 2016!

Ahhhh, a brand new year of reading. I made it to exactly 100 books for 2015; I am proud of myself for that! However, until I am retired I will be sticking with a smaller goal, to give me more time to read longer books […]

Christmas Books- There a lot of options! (Blogmas #9)

As I’ve mentioned in recent posts, I was lucky enough to take the “History of Christmas” in my undergraduate coursework. As such, I was given a license to read all of the Christmas literature I could get my hands on! (Quite a bit, as it […]
