About

We are 2 professional Librarians based in Ontario with almost 50 years of experience between us. We both have a passion for reading, connecting readers to books, and helping other librarians to develop and enhance their readers' advisory skills.

Here's a bit about each of us. 

     My name is Shonna and I grew up (mostly) in Alberta, living in various places as we moved for my father's work. This moving made me close to my family and instilled my love of travel as well. Beside travel and books, I also love to do needlework.
     I read avidly, both fiction and nonfiction, and try to read a fair bit of Canadian authors to get the word out about how good they are. I started my book review blog in January 2007, giving short reviews that are careful to give enough information to be helpful but not giving spoilers.

  1. Nice to meet you Shonna, and to meet a fellow book lover who also hails from Alberta but now lives in Ontario. I need more Canadian-book-loving-librarians on my side since my first book was published, and in reading your reviews on GoodReads and a few of them here on your blog as well, I feel we are well met.

  2. Hi Shonna, You have a great list of books. I am an author and a filmmaker in Atlanta. I would really love for you to tell me what you think of my book “If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot” when you get a chance. I enjoyed reading your post Always Watching by Chevy Stevens. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Shonna,
    I'd like to offer my new (Canadian) novel for your review, if you're interested. It was #1 in Amazon CanLit ebooks for a month, but I'd like to reach a wider audience. As a self-published author, the mainstream media tend to avoid it no matter how many bestseller lists it makes. It's a thriller called The Flood.
    Synopsis here: www.bit.ly/thefloodamazon

    If you're interested, let me know and I'd send you the ebook file or paperback.

    all the best
