Stéphanie is an book nerd and Optometrist living in a small community in Northern Ontario and even if she liked living in Montreal for 5 years, she believes the small town life is more her style. Ever since she was little she loved books and stories. It's no surprise that today, you'll always find her with a book within arm's reach.

      I started the Brent Weeks book and so far I’m really enjoying it. Have a great week too!

    I really want to check out THE CUCKOO’S CALLING! It’s like… forty dollars in stores here though and I’m not spending that just yet :/ lol

    I loved Cassandra Clare’s TMI series. I have not read books four or five until book six comes out, mainly because I’m in a little rebellion. I think that book three ended perfectly (especially since this was initially a trilogy not a six book series) and part of me doesn’t want to see Jace an Clary and everyone tortured anymore lol

    • Stéphanie

      I completely understand. Hard covers can be quite expensive. A Canadian book store here is selling it for 20$ and to me that was a pretty good deal so I jump on it.

      I’m really looking forward to TMI series. Kind of glad I waited this long because I won’t need to wait for the next installments, except for book 6. We can read book 4 and 5 together if you want.

        Stephanie I was actually wondering why books 1-3 was released soon after each other but then the rest kind of was released a lot slower 🙁 Wasn’t quite sure why that is, now I know LOL I’d love to read long when you decide to read books 4-6 😀 When’s the release of book 6?

        I also do this Stephanie, not start reading book 1 till the rest of the series is released.

      I really hope the movie does the books justice. I’m looking forward to it too!

    • Stéphanie

      I hope I enjoy TMI too! Can’t wait to get to them. Enjoy The Cuckoo’s Calling.

    • Stéphanie

      I wasn’t crazy about Casual Vacancy either but I still enjoyed it. I think The Cuckoo’s Calling will be a nice change of pace for me, especially since I’ve only been reading paranormal stuff lately. Enjoy!

        Robert Galbraith is actually a pen name for J.K. Rowling. She published it under a different name.

      • Mada Sch.

        Just like Stephanie said, Robert Galbraith is Rowling’s pen name. I guess she wanted to see what would be the public’s reaction to one of her new books when they weren’t influenced by the book’s authorship (just as you said, J.K. is an auto-buy author for many).

        When it comes to “Casual Vacancy”, there are several reasons why I didn’t like it, but two of the big ones were that it felt as if J.K. tried too hard to write an adult novel, and that it remember me of “Requiem for a Dream”, but it lacked the depth and the drama of that novel. I actually have a review on my blog for “Casual Vacancy”, you can check it out if you want to read extensively about my thoughts on it. 🙂

      I hope you have a great week too. Everyone seems to think reading Cassandra Clare is a great idea! Enjoy the weather!
