MARCH 2022: Please note that the blog is on a semi-break (mainly pre-arranged posts) as I grieve the recent death of my father. 

My name is Yvette.  I’m just a middle-brow reader who enjoys a good story, recipe or how-to.

In my twenties I became a certified chef and in my thirties a K-8 educator.  I’ve worked in various industries, including steel fabrication and software.  In 2005 I obtained my Bachelor’s in Integrated Studies with a focus in Culture, Literature and the Arts.

I started this blog in 2015 as a place to express and share my love of books and reading.

Star rating systems are a bit arbitrary by nature.  I don’t always use a star rating, but when I do, it is much like the one I used as a substitute teacher:

5 stars = Fantastic!

4 stars = Really Good!

3 stars = Good.  Solid effort with some room for improvement.

2 stars = Not good.  Improvement needed.

0 or 1 star = Oh, boy, were there some problems!

  1. Hey, Yvette! I just released a YA high-fantasy about a prince who needs a secret book and six youths to discover his purpose and save the entire kingdom. Would you be interested in taking a look at the first chapter and seeing if my book is something you’d like to review? If so, let me know how I’d go about getting it over to you, along with anything else you need. Thank you so much!
