September 2015 Wrap Up | Books at Dawn

September-Wrap-UpHey guys!

Would you look at that. Another month has come and gone. This past month has been so hectic and busy that I had to disappear from the blogging world for a bit. As most of you guys know, I recently just moved back to my home city of Toronto. I literally landed yesterday afternoon and all I’ve been doing is cleaning, unpacking, and throwing out the clutter of my old room. (Yes I moved back in with my parents. Because they love me and they don’t charge rent)

So now that I’m settling in and have a little time to write up a blog post, I thought I would do my September wrap up. It’s not going to be as grand as my August one… but at least it’s something.

LIFE UPDATE: I’M MOVING

Hey guys!

I just wanted to give y’all a little update on my life right now. I know it’s been a week or two since I’ve posted regularly and that is because I am in the midst of moving. Over the last year I have been living and working in Winnipeg Manitoba; for those that don’t know, it’s in the middle of Canada. And I recently got a promotion and a transfer through work so I will be heading back to my home city of Toronto!

I have been relentlessly packing and saying my goodbyes to friends and family here in preparations for my flight tomorrow morning. I had a great year here, both living and working and I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity. But now it’s time to head on home and reunite with my parents and closest friends.

Over the next week or so I will be playing catch up with my blog. That includes responding to all the comments and tags, putting up my month in review (which is going to be pretty small), and starting October off fresh and new with some exciting new posts! So look forward to that. I am not going anywhere!

See ya in a couple days! I’m coming home Toronto!

Until next time,

Sig New

Title Font Covers | Top 5 Wednesday [11]

Top-5-WednesdayHey guys!

Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 Title Font Covers.

Every once and a while you will come across a book with some really awesome title font. And no I’m not talking about the generic fonts you can find on Microsoft Word. I’m talking unique and visually appealing fonts, fonts that match the tone and setting of the book! So without further ado, here is my list!


5. Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

Emmy and OliverSimply beautiful.


4. Splintered by A.G. Howard

SplinteredWhimsical and gothic.


3. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

The Orphan QueenElegant and stunning.


2. Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Everything, EverythingFun and creative.


1. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shadow and BoneDark and magical.


I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. I know there many other beautifully fantastic title fonts on covers and I’m sad I’m only able to choose 5, but I hope you enjoyed the ones I chose anyway!

Until next time,

Creative Blogger Award

Creative-Blogger-AwardHey guys!

First off I want to thank Cristina from My Tiny Obsessions and Erika from Erika in Bookadventureland for nominating me for this lovely award. It really means a lot to me and they always have such nice things to say. You guys are awesome and I am forever grateful for the recognition! Now if you haven’t gone and checked out or followed their blogs, please do so now. You won’t regret it!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog
  • Share 5 facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15-20 bloggers and add their links
  • Notify the bloggers you included
  • Keep the rules in your post to make it easy for everyone to know what to do!

Here are 5 Things I Am Obsessed With (That counts right?)

Creative-Blogger-Award-1My Books of course! There is never a time when I am without a book on me. I have one next to my bed, I have one in my bag at all times, I have one on my tablet, even a picture book next to the toilet! Yes I am that obsessed that I need one when I poop. If I could I would quit my job and just read and do other book related things all day long. That would be the life!


Creative-Blogger-Award-2TV shows. This is equally as obsessive as books. I can’t count how much TV shows I watch and I just keep adding new ones every fall season. Thank god for PVR and internet streaming, or else I would be glued to my TV every night and would have to sit through crappy commercials. No one like commercials.

Shows I’m looking forward to returning:

  • Arrow / The Flash
  • How to Get Away with Murder
  • Chicago Fire / Chicago P.D
  • 2 Broke Girls

Shows I’m looking forward to premiering:

  • Quantico
  • Scream Queens
  • Chicago Med
  • Heroes Reborn
  • Legend’s of Tomorrow

Creative-Blogger-Award-3My phone. Now a days who isn’t obsessed with their phone? Even though my phone is at least 4 years old. (Yes its a iPhone 4s) I seriously need to upgrade to the latest model. But regardless I need my phone for everything. Check my messages, Instagram, Twitter, GoodReads etc.

In a couple weeks I will have an iPhone 6s in my hands and I can finally chuck this clunky phone out the window!


Creative-Blogger-Award-4My music. I NEED my music like everyone needs to breathe. As we speak I am jamming out to my tunes right now writing this post up! I listen to music in the shower, before bed, writing up my blog posts, on my commute to work, when I clean, or when I’m just chilling. The only time I can’t listen to music is when I’m reading. I find it too distracting to sing and read at the same time.

KPOP runs my life and the majority of the 12,000 songs on my itunes is KPOP. Literally maybe 85%? That’s a lot right?


Creative-Blogger-Award-5SHOES. It goes without saying that I am a shoe-a-holic. I need to go to a shopaholics anonymous because I’m pretty sure if I didn’t spend most of my money on books and food then it would go to shoes. Yes I work at a shoe store and no it doesn’t help my addiction. It probably makes it worse to be honest. I can probably say I own 40+ pairs of shoes. How crazy is that?

I have athletic shoes (especially Nike), casual shoes, boots, dress shoes etc. I don’t even think I wear all the shoes I own.


Well those are 5 facts about myself in the form of my obsessions/addictions. I hope you enjoyed getting an insight into my life a little more than usually!

Until next time,

Sig New
