About

I’m A Canadian Reader Who Loves Talking Books!

My name is Kimmy and I’m a book lover.

I grew up in a family of readers, and have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I would read any book I could get my hands on.

I mostly read fiction these days, and since starting this blog, have discovered that I love YA fiction. I read a lot of fantasy, science fiction, and supernatural/paranormal books, but I’m trying to read more adult and  contemporary YA fiction these days too.

I love the possibilities that a new book holds. It could be a new favourite. It could be exciting, thrilling, funny, sad…there is a world in those pages, just waiting for me to be part of it.

In fall 2010, I asked my web-designer husband to help me set up a site where I could post my thoughts about the books I’m currently reading, want to read, or have recently read. I’ve been blogging at this site since late 2010, but I was very shy for the first couple of years of this site’s existence. In the past couple of years, I’ve reached out and met other bloggers and attended amazing events like BEA. I’ve met some great people already and am looking forward to getting more involved in the blogging community!

When I’m not reading or working, I’m watching TV, playing video games, painting my nails, and hanging out with my husband. I am always looking for more book recommendations!

Some of my favourite books include The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle, Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy, and Victoria Schwab’s Vicious. My favourite TV shows include Supernatural, The Walking Dead, The Mindy Project, and Bob’s Burgers.

Thank you for stopping by!
