Review | Addict (The Cassie Tam Files #1)

Addict (The Cassie Tam Files #1) by Matt Doyle Genre: Sci-Fi/Crime Noir | Diversity: queer Chinese-Canadian MC | My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads Blurb New Hopeland was built to be the centre of the technological age, but like everywhere else, it has its dark side. Assassins, drug dealers and crooked businessmen form a vital part of the city’s make-up, and sometimes,… Continue reading Review | Addict (The Cassie Tam Files #1)

Around the Blogosphere: June 2017

After seeing Kourni’s version of this feature, I decided to make this its own post. I used to put a section of awesome blog posts in my Wrap-Up, but as I’m sure you’ve seen, that post is already out of control. So, here are some posts I loved this month. I hope you enjoy reading… Continue reading Around the Blogosphere: June 2017

Double Mini-Reviews | The Melody of You and Me + The Paths We Choose

Hello all! Welcome to my first Double Review post! I’m changing the way I do reviews a little bit. Previously, I’ve been posting a majority of my reviews only on Goodreads.

my big queer summer TBR!

Happy June everyone! The June/July Challenge for Diverse Reads 2017 is Gender/Sexuality and I could not be more excited! I’ve been developing this list for a while.

May Wrap-Up

in my personal life May is generally a good month for me. Spring is my favorite season. Everything that was dead over the winter gets to bloom anew—which is kind of how I feel about myself. This month, I had a birthday. It was pretty non-exciting, other than the fact that my parents flew up… Continue reading May Wrap-Up

New to My Shelf in 2017 (Part 1)

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, giving book lovers a chance to share books we’re adding to our shelves. My participation is going to be a little different, in that I’m in somewhat of a book-buying ban. I’m currently unemployed (hopefully not for much longer, fingers crossed) and living on… Continue reading New to My Shelf in 2017 (Part 1)

Trope Tuesday: My Love-Hate Relationship with Romance in YA

Trope Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by A.J. @ Lacy Literacy. The goal is to discuss a trope you are indifferent to, love, hate, or think is problematic. Fair Warning: I’m gonna be on my soapbox like crazy for this (but that’s what Trope Tuesday is about, right?) I grew up on YA fiction… Continue reading Trope Tuesday: My Love-Hate Relationship with Romance in YA

Trope Tuesday: More Lady Friendships Please!

Trope Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by A.J. @ Lacy Literacy. The goal is to discuss a trope you are indifferent to, love, hate, or think is problematic. I think I speak for a lot of YA readers when I say this: I’m tired of the over-emphasis on romance. Instead of talking about all… Continue reading Trope Tuesday: More Lady Friendships Please!

April Wrap-Up

Welcome to my monthly wrap-up for April! The spring months are always slightly chaotic for me. Something about the warmer weather (and the astrological new year at the tail end of March) always gives me this huge burst of energy. I’m inspired to get things done and to make changes that need to be made.… Continue reading April Wrap-Up
