This weekend, I devoured Rick Riordan’s newest book. It was about a homeless boy in Boston who discovers that his father was a Norse god. Joaquin could not wait for this one, because he loves Norse mythology. We are both big Rick Riordan fans; we’ve read all of the Percy Jackson books, the Lost Hero, … More Magnus Chase
It’s Friday, and my week has improved a lot, so here are some new Friday favourites! New tunic I finished my knitting project! It is the Coffee Tunic on Ravelry. I made it in a different colour last year, and hated the way it looked on me, so I ripped it all out. Making it … More Five Friday Favourites
We were supposed to have our first proper book club meeting this week. We had already met to figure out how things were going to go, and to pick our first book, but this was to be our first discussion. You’ve probably noticed that I said “supposed to”.

So, my coworker and I started a book club. We always talk about books, so we decided we should just formalize it. At first, we tried to come up with a lot of people to join, but we finally decided to just ask two other people. At least to start, we figured it would be … More Starting a Book Club!
I mentioned in a previous post that I have been doing a lot of rereading lately, and it is true. There was originally a very specific reason for this. I am a fast reader. I always have been. I grew up reading voluminously, and then studied English in university, so basically my entire life has … More Revisiting Mercedes Lackey
So Bali is incredible. We are having an amazing time, and I’m so excited to recap it all. In the meantime, I had to pop in to give you some more Friday Favourites! I won’t talk about anything we have done on the trip, because I want to save that for a Bali-specific post. Here … More Five Friday Favourites
So I technically have two different offices, though I spend the majority of my time in one of them. The biggest problem with this arrangement (even bigger than having to walk back and forth during the polar vortex of winter) is that there is a used bookstore in between the two. This is a place … More A slight book addiction….
