#CaitTacklesTBRPile—Sad, Black, and Fat: Musings from the Intersection by Tangela Williams-Spann

I love discovering new authors through Twitter writing chats. That’s how I met Tangela Williams-Spann. When she had put a call out to podcasters a few weeks ago, I let her know I was interested in interviewing her! I was so happy when she accepted, and the plan is to have Tangela Williams-Spann as a …

#CaitTacklesTBRPile features the covers of Rear Admiral by ’Nathan Burgoine and The Final Decree by Jeffrey Ricker

#CaitTacklesTBRPile: Rear Admiral, by ’Nathan Burgoine and The Final Decree, by Jeffrey Ricker

I'm so grateful for authors who write shorter works of fiction. I must have said this dozens of times in the past 14 months. With my brain having concentration issues, it so lovely to get a full meal in a smaller package. And smaller package might not be the correct term for the first of …

ID: Pale purple background, purple script font that says #CaitTacklesTBRPile, and a copy of Entanglements by Christina Robins

#CaitTacklesTBRPile: Entanglements, by Christina Robins

Earlier this year (because I'm on Jeremy Bearimy time and can't tell two weeks from two months these days), I read an eARC of Entanglements by Canadian romance author Christina Robins. This is her first published work. Entanglements is a novella that pays tribute to the style of Jackie Collins but with a distinctly Canadian …

My review: To Pluck a Crow, The Hands Behind Shakespeare’s Pen is so pluckin’ intriguing!

I'm a massive Shakespeare nerd, or at least I used to be as a teenager, always with my trusty tome of his complete works close by. (I still have it, too!) Over the years, I had heard rumours questioning the authorship of those works, so I was really intrigued to read about Sue Taylor-Davidson's take …

My review: In the Shadow of the Spire is a much-needed Star Wars story

I've said it before and I'll say it again: author February Grace is probably one of the kindest people ever to be found on Twitter. She's really a delight, so consider following her! Aside from being a lovely human, she's also a brilliant writer with over 30K followers on Wattpad alone. This month, I found …

My review: Run J Run is a “Read Now!” Read

After I finished this book, I just sat still, gobsmacked. It was incredible. And though I absolutely loved Su Sokol’s, Cycling to Asylum, Run J Run will stay with me a very long time. What I find extremely important about this work is that it starts with a content warning: The following material contains discussions …

My review: Faux Ho Ho restored my faith in holiday romance stories!

Faux Ho Ho is available now from Book Strokes Books! I can’t even tell you how much I’ve grown to despise holiday stories, and here’s the kicker: I’m a sappy romantic human! I’ve just found so many of them feel snoozy and overdone. Most times, I can’t get beyond a few pages. Then I read …

My review: Love and Lemonade, by Jamieson Wolf

This is the third book in Jamieson Wolf’s Lemonade series, and I love these characters so much. It’s like catching up with old friends. I’m a big fan of the episodic nature of each chapter, and this series reminds me a bit of Tales of the City, with respect to the chosen family theme. I …

Life in My Microcosm: Cait G’s Top Ten Books of 2017!

Several of my author peeps post about their favourite books of the year and I think it’s a great idea. We’re not only writers, we’re also readers! This year I dove into books from authors I’ve met or had contact with on social media (except maybe Mary Shelley, but we so would have been tweeps). …
