Before The Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi – Book Review

I haven’t read a lot of Japanese fiction before and have been wanting to get on it for the longest time. Last summer, I decided to buy There’s No Such Thing As An Easy Job but got bored in the first few chapters. So when I saw Before The Coffee Gets Cold on sale at […]

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman – Book Review

Last summer, I happen to discover Fredrik Backman’s work for the first time when I read Anxious People. That book is a masterpiece in my opinion, and I immediately just wanted to read all his other novels after. I read A Man Called Ove next which is probably his most popular work. It has already […]

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig – Book Review

It’s official, The Midnight Library is my new favourite book! This was an amazing start to my April reading, and quite the redemption from a poor reading month in February and March.  I’ve seen this book everywhere since it was released in 2020 and honestly I wish I had read it sooner. This is the […]

The Viscount Who Loved Me (Bridgerton #2) by Julia Quinn – Book Review

The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren – Book Review

Reading books has been my main hobby lately but I think it’s safe to say that buying books comes second, and no they are not the same thing. Almost every day, I go on Facebook Marketplace just to browse listings and see if there are any books that I want to add to my collection. […]

Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid – Book Review

Such A Fun Age is a book that has been popping up a lot on my Bookstagram feed and to be honest, part of me was drawn to it because of the pretty book cover. Luckily I saw that someone was selling it on Facebook Marketplace so I decided to buy it. When I opened […]

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman – Book Review

In the summer of 2021, I started to get back into reading again. I’ve been on a long reading slump prior to that, and I was just in a phase where I was still trying to figure out what genre of books I actually like. Coincidentally, someone in my neighbourhood started a book club and […]
