I’m a librarian living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I enjoy reading, writing, amateur photography, video games, travelling, and pretending to speak French. I live near the waterfront, and I absolutely love finding a good spot outdoors to curl up with a novel or a notebook.
While I love working in an academic library, I don’t get to do any readers’ advisory like public librarians do. In library school, I took a course on how to evaluate books for their appeal and recommend them to readers. I’ve been wanting to put these skills to good use for a while. Blogging and bookstagramming will (hopefully) fill this book-shaped hole in my heart.
I read stories in (almost) all genres, and I was reviewing them on Goodreads anyway, so I decided to take the plunge and create a book blog. Feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads, and we can compare books and judge each other.
I’m also a writer, and I have several short stories published. My award-winning debut novel “The Ghosts of Thorwald Place” was published October 2021 with CamCat Books. If you’re interested in checking out my writing, visit my website at: www.helenpower.ca.
I look forward to discussing books with you!
