Book-Blogger Shout Out Announcement!

Hi everyone!

In the past few months, I have been finding that a lot of book bloggers are doing this thing called “Book Blogger Shout Outs”! I thought that I would join on the ban-wagon, as I thought that it’s a very nice idea!

If you would like a shout out, please email me:


  • Must be a book blogger
  • Must post atleast once every 2-3 months
  • Must be active
  • In the email, send me an intro to you and your blog
  • In the email, send me a profile picture (Either yourself, an item, or an avatar)
  • In the email, send me a short book review, top 1o, discussion, OR anything else book related!

If you would like to be one of my first shout outs, please email me by Sunday, February 1st (at the latest)!

This is an excellent way to showcase your hard work, and become more popular on the book blogging community at the same time!

Good Night Book Lions!

NaNoWriMo 2014: Chapter 11

“Mom, were home!” I yell, while settling down all of our food. “Hi guys, sorry I couldn’t pick you up early, I was busy at work.” She tells us. Oh, right, she was supposed to pick us up early, oh well. “What did you buy?” she asks me. “Let’s see.” I tell her. “I bought a chocolate chip muffin and an iced cappuccino, I bought David a Chocolate chip donut and a fruit juice, I bought you six mini tid bits and, finally, Leah bought us each a cupcake, so four cupcakes.” I hope she’s not mad… “And how much did this happen to cost you?” she asks. “Ten dollars.”
“Well then, everyone dig in!” she yells! Fortunately, she is in a rather pleasant mood.
At about four thirty, my mothers calls us, to tell us to get ready for karate, and that we are living in ten minutes. Like always, I help David into his uniform and tie on his belt. He has an orange belt, which I think is pretty good for a four year old!
At four forty, my mother calls, and tells us its time to leave, I grab a science worksheet, that is due next week, and then we head out the door.
I’m aching to hear Sienna’s DDK. I wonder what she got.
On the way to the karate studio, we pass an unusual road sign. It talks about Derek Smool and how every scientist who is alive, should be hunted down and killed. Hopefully this isn’t true. I wonder why the government hasn’t requested to take down the sign. It just seems so weird to be put up in this neighbourhood. But I guess that request, most certainly, cannot not be made by me. Now that my father is a full time scientist, I take the news and signs like those, a little bit more seriously then I normally would. But I also have to remember, that those words are not aimed directly at me, just the scientist job population as a whole.

Alyssa’s Reviews – We Are Canada by Rikia Saddy

Hi everyone!

Today I’m going to be doing a book review for the fourth book I read this year! It’s called We Are Canada by Rikia Saddy.

Summary (

We Are Canada is a short story of Canada that begins at the end of the last ice age and carries through to the present day. It is an eighty-page telling of our history that challenges three Canadian myths: that the French were a conquered people, that our First Nations were innocent bystanders in the formation of our country, and that Canada only had two founding peoples. According to Rikia Saddy, we’ve been multicultural from the start. An informative, easy read, We Are Canada will change the way you see your country. We can’t be divided, and we can’t be conquered. We are Canada.


I found this book to be very interesting. I had to read this for school, as well for the Red Maple (Forest of Reading) program that is at my school. I recently posted something ALL ABOUT the Forest Of Reading Program, click here to read it: !

I live in Canada, and I really enjoyed reading the history of Canada, up until the present day. This book was really short, so it only took me about 30-40 minutes to read. It’s slightly over 100 pages, with about 4 sentences per page, along with an illustration.


I enjoyed reading this book, and gave it 3.75 out of 5 stars!

Third Sentance Thursday {01/19}

Hosted by: Thatswhatsheread

(Take any book you are reading and flick to a random page. Share the third full sentence from that page with the blogosphere as a “taster” of the book! You can also share your thoughts about the sentence (does it affect the novel? did you like the language used? was it so short that it adds suspense?) It’s a fun, fast way to offer your readers a ‘snapshot’ of a particular book.)

“If I hadn’t spoken to President Snow, this gesture might move me to tears.” -Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, Page 76.

So far, I’m a little bit more then half-way through Catching Fire, and I still CANNOT BELIEVE that I haven’t read this book sooner! I guess my excuse is that, I’m not a big fan of reading hyped up books, BUT STILL!
