Invaded is the sequel to Melissa Lander’s Alienated ; a young adult book about an alien exchange program. In book one, we followed Aelyx and Cara as they navigated cultural and social differences while the human population alternatively decried and supported the L’eihr/Earth diversity program. Now, in book two, Cara and Aelyx have been separated in…

Go Set A Watchman is the oft-talked about, long anticipated new novel by Harper Lee, the author of the brilliant book To Kill a Mockingbird. There are many who hold Mockingbird up as one of their favourite books of all time. I make no claim that it is mine, but it does stand as one of…

Gillian Flynn has become one of those authors that I can’t help but love. She is gritty and disturbing. She writes in clipped, staccato bursts of unspeakable horror, and her stories are unpredictable and gripping. I read Gone Girl last year and was surprised by how much I loved it, particularly since mystery thrillers and…

Dead Ever After is the final book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampires series by Charlaine Harris. It released in 2013 to much hue and cry over the content of the book. As such I delayed reading it for some time, fearing that it might not be the best book. I finally picked it up this last week…

Deadlocked is the twelfth book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampires mysteries by Charlaine Harris. It is the penultimate book in the series. I have been back-burnering this series for years, choosing to pick them up only when I want something light and fun and familiar. It has been a long time since these books…

I was initially reluctant about the New Adult genre as a whole. That said, I was a big fan of Easy by Tammara Webber. It was one of those books that grew in my mind long after reading it. I loved Lucas and loved reading Jacqueline falling for him. For a few years it has remained…

Wait for Me is the first in a New Adult series by J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout). It details the accounts of Avery Morgansten embarking on a new chapter of her life. I bought this book forever ago and only now got back in the mood for New Adult. I took it on vacation with me last…

The first book in Jordan Stratford’s The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency series snuck up on me. I didn’t know of its existence until I saw the book on a list of good feminist books for young readers. I was charmed by the idea of Mary Shelley and Ada Lovelace solving crimes in their childhood, so charmed…

By the time that you read this I will be away and back again. Or close enough. I have gone away on vacation and I took ALL of these books with me. Because I’m me. Because I’m sure that everyone takes a stack of 12+ books on a four-day vacation up north? And of those titles…

Artemis Fowl is a series by Eoin Colfer that I have back-burnered for a long time, so long now that the series is complete with eight books to its credit. It was one of the books that everyone voted into my Middle Grade summer reading challenge, so I was finally afforded the opportunity to read…

Hello folks. How is everything going in the outside world? It’s been a minute since I have updated the perks feature. In my defense, it’s been raining (or threatening to rain) here on and off for weeks. It’s made it hard to get a good photo of the books. So, I kept putting it off….

Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish came to my attention when I believed it was published only in Canada. I was intrigued by the premise and briefly debated having my brother-in-law pick it up for me in Windsor. Some time later, I learned that it was also being published in the states and it…
