The Lost City of Z: Book Review + Movie Trailer

Years ago, I read a book called THE LOST CITY OF Z by David Grann. My book review was posted in August 2010. I loved that book and it continues to exist on my 10 most recommended books list seven years later. Continue reading

2017: The Year of Non-Fiction

I declare 2017 to be The Year of Non-fiction! What non-fiction books do YOU recommend for 2017? Writers of color, female or transgender, from a country other than the US are all a bonus quality, but ultimately I’m looking for engaging non-fiction on any and every topic. Continue reading

August Wish List

I have been traveling through New Zealand since October, and as you might expect, it’s difficult to backpack with a bag full of books (which is what I’d prefer to do). Instead, I’ve transitioned to an e-reader, for the first time in my life, and have been making my way through a few favorite series … Continue reading

Only a few novels were children books, even fewer YA, mostly mysteries, paranormal romances, motorcycle romances, and … Continue reading

New Zealand’s Canvas Magazine Recommends

As part of my year-long adventure in New Zealand, I’m on a hunt to read more books by New Zealand authors, set in New Zealand, ones that mention New Zealand in a footnote, are recommended by Kiwis, etc. So, on one of my recent days off, I sat down with my first New Zealand book-centric … Continue reading

December New Releases

  Despite being in New Zealand, I still have time to get excited about the new books being released in the US this month. I have no idea about the publishing schedule in the rest of the world, so apologies for that. Now, without further ado, here are the December 2015 books: Secret Sisters Jayne … Continue reading

Winter (Snow + Christmas) Children’s Books from Penguin Random House

For those of you celebrating the Christmas season in a snowy climate, have I got the books for you! That will not be me this year, as am I spending the year in New Zealand, where temperatures can be in the 80s and 90s (that’s Fahrenheit, folks) on Christmas Day. Who knows, I might spend … Continue reading
