Wrap-Up | Around the World in 2017

I started 2017 wanting to read more translated books, specifically books written by women. So at the end of 2017 I've read 31 books from 20 different countries, translated from 13 different languages. 25/31 books (80%) are written by women, 5 books written by men, and one mixed gender anthology. 2017 has felt like a… Continue reading Wrap-Up | Around the World in 2017

Wrap Up | CanLit Bingo 2017

Another year, another Canadian Literature bingo. I managed to finish my last book the morning of December 31 over a cup of tea.

[Wrap-Up] January Stats and Wrap-up

This is being posted embarrassingly late. I was overambitious with my blogging plans in January then ran out of spoons near the end of the month, leading me to abandon a bunch of half written blog posts, reviews and big plans that were never actually executed. Anyhow, January. Lovely January with its snow, rain, freezing… Continue reading [Wrap-Up] January Stats and Wrap-up
