Behind The Canon

Welcome to The Canon, home of book reviews, discussions, the occasional rambling and photos of coffee and running shoes. 

I created The Canon my first year of college and fell in love with blogging. (More of The Canon’s story here!)

My mission with The Canon is to create a place where anyone, no matter their preferences, can find the perfect read.

So please, look around. Find your book. Let me know if The Canon helped you to find a new author, new series, new book.

First time here? Here’s some reader faves.
Fire on the Island by J.K. Hogan

Need a book to start? My GoodReads is organized by genre. 


I love to run, cook and eat. I watch Chopped every times it’s on. There are piles of books lining our house, a problem that’s only slightly improved now that I have a home library. 

I live in California, but my heart will always belong in Texas.

4 Random Facts About Me

1. I notoriously forget to return library books. I think I’m single-handedly supporting our local library.
2. I have three rescue animals.
3. I love fluffy, silly books. 
4. I’ll read anything, but romance and mystery are my favorites. You like those, too? We’ll get along just fine.
