For those of you outside of Canada, Giant Tiger is a discount chain store. It sells everything from clothing to food and home décor. And its one of my favourite spots to pick up cheap books. I always find some hidden gems hiding in their big bins. Here are the books I came across in June.

The Promise of Palm Grove (Amish Brides of Pinecraft 1)
By: Shelley Shepard Gray

Then. Now. Always
By: Isabelle Broom

For One More Day

February 2020 Book Haul

Thanks to a local library book haul, I brought in more books than normal. I couldn’t help myself and this sale only happens twice a year, afterall.

Here are the books I’ve added to my shelf during the month of February

This first book was given to me by my mom. We were digging through some old boxes one day and she found it and remembered enjoying it years ago. What made this novel even more special, was my grandmother’s initials inside the front cover, which meant she too had read it possibly in the late 1980’s.

Time Steps by Charlotte Vale Allen

Book Haul: July 2017

I think I found my new favourite bookstore. And it isn’t even a bookstore at all. Last month I was in Value Village thrift store and decided to check out their book section. I was so pleasantly surprised by the selection they had.

This is what I picked up..


  • Spanish Holiday: Or How I Transformed the Worst Vacation Ever into the Best Summer of My Life by Kate Cann

    Dear Bella and Bobby,

    Thank you SO MUCH for letting us stay at your villa. It’s gorgeous, and we’re having a fab time looking after it and enjoying the view of the mountains and the lovely olive grove. I figured out the bus to Ercos on the first day here — it’s as easy as you said! And Miguel’s son Juan is helping us take care of everything, so you needn’t worry at all!


  • The Gatecrasher by Madeleine Wickham 

    Everything’s coming up roses for Fleur Daxeny, as she goes through more rich men than she does designer hats… if that’s humanly possible. Beautiful, charming, and utterly irresistible, her success at crashing funerals to find wealthy men is remarkable. But behind Fleur’s Harvey Nichols wardrobe, is a woman with a mysterious past.

    Fleur wastes no time in seducing her latest conquest, the handsome and rich widower Richard Favour, and she swoops into his life like a designer-clad tornado. His children are caught up in a whirlwind as their father’s new girlfriend descends on the family estate leaving chaos and excitement in her perfume-scented wake. Soon, more than one family member is suspicious of Fleur’s true intentions.

    Fleur is not one to wear her heart on her Chanel sleeves, but she soon finds herself embracing Richard and his lovable family. But just as Fleur contemplates jumping off the gold-digger train for good and enjoying the ride of true love, a long-buried secret from her past threatens to destroy her new family. Fleur is thrown into a race against time to prove herself to Richard before it’s too late.  Can she trust her heart or will she cut ties and run away as fast as her Prada pumps can take her?

    Take a wild and marvelous ride with The Gatecrasher, whose clever, chic, and sassy style will leave you desperately wanting more wonderful Wickham!

  • Baby Proof by Emily Giffin 

    From the author of the smash hits Something Borrowed and Something Blue comes a novel that explores the question: is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?

    First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes . . . a baby carriage? Isn’t that what all women want?

    Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.

    This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It’s about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was—and that there is no possible compromise. It’s about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it’s about the things we will do—and won’t do—for love.

  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

    Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris–until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

    But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?
