Reviews I write about all kinds of books – fiction, poetry, non-fiction, short story collections, etc. – because that's what I read. This blog is framed as a place for recommending books, so you aren't likely to see a bad review here (I don't make money doing this, so why would I write about something I didn't like?).
Some of the books I write about were sent to me by publishers, but many are books I came to on my own. If you're a publisher and would like me to send me review copies, please get in touch (e-mail is below).
About me I am twenty-something Nova Scotian living in Toronto and working as a freelance writer and editor. I have a BA in English and French and a masters of journalism. My writing has appeared in a smattering of places, including The Gazette in Montreal, the National Post, and the Maple Tree Literary Supplement (check here for more details).
Beauty and the Beast was the first movie I saw in theatres and although I was already a book lover, I'm convinced my love of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves stems from that movie's library scenes. I don't have a room full of books yet, but I'm well on my way.
