People are always surprised when I tell them I work at a library. They always tell me “Oh, that’s cool! But… what do you do?”
(or they really judge me and think I’m a total loser haha) I’ve been working at my local library for the last two summers, and this summer is going to be my third in a row! I’ve also been hired as a part-time Library Assistant during the year.
Today, I thought I would finally demystify my job as a Library Assistant!
I tried my best to describe things as accurately as possible, but since I work in a French-speaking library and don’t know much of the library vocabulary in English, please excuse any inaccuracy. I also have to mention that I don’t have that many pictures of the library itself, since it’s forbidden to take pictures inside. View Post
Magnus Chase lost his mother in a terrible incident two years ago, and has been living on the streets of Boston ever since. He has seen his fair share of trouble, but never would he have thought that his life would take such a drastic turn. Until one of his relatives, Uncle Randolph, tracks him down and tells him about his birthright: a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. Suddenly, Magnus’s life is full of gods of Asgard, wolves, and Doomsday. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die.
I am a big Marvel fan. So when I heard that they were coming out with a Black Widow novel, I was off the roof! Natasha Romanoff is one of my favorite characters, and I think she’s fairly underrated. We didn’t get to hear much about her background story through the movies she’s been in, so I was really excited to finally read a book about her.
I asked for it this Christmas, and my sister was nice enough to give it to me! The first thing I loved about it is the gorgeous cover. I mean, look at that! Doesn’t that look like a great book?
Natasha Romanoff is sent to stop a big operation involving her old teacher, Ivan Somodorov, the evil man behind the Red Room. While dismantling Ivan’s base of operations, she saves a little girl, Ava Orlova, in the process. Ava has tried to reach out to her saviour ever since, but the Black Widow is not really the big sister type.
Eight years after that night, when children start disappearing again in Eastern Europe, Natasha knows her old teacher has returned. But what she didn’t know is that she would need the help of Ava Orlova to stop him.
Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I teamed up with a few bloggers to share our favorite romantic reads to put you all in the mood! Whether you like the holiday or not, if you like contemporaries and/or romance novels, I think you might find something to your taste in this list!

After orchestrating a “unexpected” meeting at a bar he knows she will be at one night, Joe slowly starts taking control over Beck’s life, driving her to him. Joe is willing to do everything to get his dream girl, even if it means murder. View Post
