I started listening to Outlander on audiobook. I thought that summer would be a good time to…

Book vs. Movie: The Circle

By on June 3, 2018

I picked up The Circle by Dave Eggers at the end of 2017, because I really wanted to see the movie. I have this rule that I won’t watch a show or movie until I have read the book. This rule helps me keep out any preconceived notions of…

Book vs. Netflix: Alias Grace

By on May 27, 2018

As the sole Canadian reviewer of LQ, I believe it is my privilege, nay, my DUTY, to talk about my homegirl Margaret Atwood. Maggie*, as you may know her, is responsible for bringing us the chilling but fabulous The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu. But the Atwood series that quietly…

Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time

By on May 20, 2018

The Book
I was first exposed to the Time/Kairos Quintet when I was in 3rd grade. My teacher, Mrs. Graham, read us A Wind in the Door, and like that, I was hooked. So you can say that my returning to this series to review is pretty near and dear…

Essential Books of Poetry to Read for National Poetry Month

By on April 16, 2018

April is National Poetry Month. Poor poetry. It’s so overlooked that it needs its own month not to be forgotten. I love poetry, but it’s not always in my wheelhouse to sit down and read a book of poetry. Every time I’m at the bookstore though, I make sure…

What We’re Reading This Week

By on March 5, 2018

Well, it’s March, and here we are having a snow day in Minnesota. We’re supposed to get freezing rain, then 4-6 inches of snow. It’s definitely going to be a good reading night after work! Hope this first official week of spring is nicer for everyone else!
