Hello again.

*peeks out from behind the door and slowly walks out*


It’s been quite a while since we last posted…about 9 months? Woops. I’ll offer no excuses for my absence because life happens, school happens and things not as important as school gets pushed aside and placed on the back burner. That’s exactly what happened to this blog.

Now that I’m done with my undergraduate degree and currently on summer break before graduate school starts up I’ve decided to re-start this blog. This is partially because I’ve been reading again and finding awesome books and have been wanting to write about them. I’m also still at the library and keep finding books with pretty covers and need somewhere to be showcased.

With that being said, this is what you can expect from this blog: hauls, reviews, questionnaires/tags, Friday Reads and any other posts that I can think of. Hope you guys stick around and catch you at the next post.



Friday Reads: Aug 5, 2016

Thanks to Civic Holiday in Canada, this past week was a short one. It has been, however, one of the longest short weeks that happened in a while. Usually they just fly by but not this time. This week kept on dragging on. Thankfully though it is finally Friday (a.k.a Fri-yay). Time to get my reading on!

This weekend I will be reading:

 The Maze Runner by James Dashner. This is the weekend that I determine if I’m going to finish this book or if it’ll become a DNF. I’m more than halfway through and it’s dragging and I can’t seem to get into it.


Dare Me by Megan Abbott. It’s the first of 4 books I’ve taken out from the library and it needs to be read A.S.A.P before I need to return it.

What will you be reading?

June 2016 Book Haul

I love my job, I do. I love working with my co-workers (both young and old), the customers that come on a regular basis and of course seeing/reading all of the books that come in through the book return slot.

Hold up.

There’s a problem to all of this though. On a single day I can work with 200 books, easy. Another problem is that I have very little self-control and will when it comes to controlling the impulses of wanting to check out many books that are new and that peak my interest.

You follow?

So today I bring you a book haul. Most of it is courtesy from the library, and one I actually bought with my own money. I probably won’t even read most of them before the due date, or I’ll end up returning them late. Oh well. C’est la vie.

Mark Your Calendars #6

Falling Hard by Tina Wainscott


Release Date: December 8, 2015


There’s no one Pax Sullivan wants to run into less than Gemma Thornton. Back in high school, she revved his heart more than street racing. But she picked his clean-cut brother over him—only to accuse Blake of an unforgivable crime. Eventually the charges were dropped and Gemma left town, but the hard feelings lingered . . . along with Pax’s gnawing “what-ifs.” Seven years later, just as he quits the police force to open a racetrack, Gemma’s back—and their chemistry is more combustible than ever.

If it were up to her, Gemma would never lay eyes on another Sullivan. She hates them, and they hate her—even Pax, who just so happens to be fixing up her father’s B&B. But the more time she spends with the lean, hard-bodied ex-cop at the inn and on the track, the more Gemma sees that Pax is nothing like his brother. Despite their anguished history, she’s tempted to take their relationship into high gear . . . if she can face the past and risk her heart.


Hey everyone,

Welcome to the new It’s a Booksession website! Woohoo!


Long story short, I was deeply unsatisifed with the blogging platform that I was using on the previous website, so I decided to take the leap and finally create a new website. Fingers and toes are crossed that the issues occuring on the old website won’t be happening on the new one.

Anyway, with the start of a new blog I thought it would be a good idea to re-introduce myself to you, regardless if you’re a repeat reader or a person who stumbled over.

Hi, I’m Samantha. I am an university student who loves to read. Most times throughout the year, if my head isn’t watching random Youtube videos or studying for an exam, it can be found in a book. Or it can also be found with headphones in my ears listening to whatever audiobook is playing at the time. I usually buy my books from franchise stores, independents or they are borrowed from my local library.

I try to read from a variety of genres but the ones that I am currently loving are:

  • Young Adult
  • Romance
  • Dystopian
  • FanFiction (yes, I consider that a genre)

Welcome to my corner of the Internet.
