Reviews of Science Fiction and Fantasy novels by Jessica Strider, a bookseller at the - soon closing - World's Biggest Bookstore in Toronto, Canada. You'll also find shout-outs to SFF books, news tidbits, historical tidbits and more.
I work in the science fiction and fantasy section of the World's Biggest Bookstore in Toronto. In addition to my regular duties, I also plan themed endcaps and author interview displays.
From September 2010 until December 2012 I contributed book reviews and New Author Spotlight posts to SF Signal. I currently do a Recommended Reading with Professionals post twice a month there.
I've got a BA in Medieval History from the University of Toronto.
I'm a long time crafter and have been card crafting for a few years, first using photos I took and now using lots of stamps and fun embellishments.

Book Review Requests
***Closed to Review Requests***
I'm taking this year (2012) to read the books on my shelves I haven't read, and to lower my tbr pile. If I'd agreed to review a book for you I will, in the usual time frame (mentioned below), otherwise, I'm closed to review requests for the year - or until this message disappears.
