The Face Behind The Blog
My name is Pippa.
I am a communications grad student, with a background in political science, a self-professed nerd, science fiction enthusiast, blogger, writer, feminist, book reviewer, photographer, etc.
In 2010, I read and reviewed 52 books. Take a look at my reviews, and see if you find something new.
I'm continuing to review books, but not as often. I will also be reviewing movies and television shows, as well as talking about life in Vancouver, BC - and my continuing adventures in university.
Feel free to stick around, read a bit, comment a bit, link a bit, share your thoughts, and make book suggestions.
I look forward to talking with you!

For me, summer in Vancouver is walking home from work over the Burrard Street Bridge. I kind of love bridges. Different cities, different favourite bridges. San Francisco has the Golden Gate, London has the Millennium Footbridge (affectionately called the wobbly … Continue reading
I went out to dinner in Gastown this weekend, and it made me think a bit about this part of Vancouver. Gastown is a startling mix of people, it’s images seem to fracture along very different lines. On one … Continue reading
Buildings are covered in advertising right now – even ones that haven’t officially done so. The Sun is creating a myriad of advertisements in a concrete forest. I find it strangely beautiful. Coincidental Art.
