The Rec League: Imposter Syndrome

The Rec League - heart shaped chocolate resting on the edge of a very old book

Our latest Rec League comes from Frini. Thanks for sending it in! I’m looking for book recommendations that have a heroine struggling with something like impostor syndrome. Like, she needs validation about her life/work/looks. It can be a second chance romance, enemies to lovers…it’s all good 🙂 Anything on that front? Susan: Oh no, this is the character trait that most reduces me to gross sobbing. If you’ll excuse the fifteen volume manga: Library Wars: … Continue reading The Rec League: Imposter Syndrome

Links: Just Good Things

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.

We are in the midst of week 3 of COVID-19 social distancing. How is everyone doing? Bored yet? In previous editions of Links, we’ve listed ways to keep active and busy and some things that are free to watch, read, and listen to. This one is more focused on boosting those serotonin levels with funny or uplifting things we’ve found around the internet! … I am having a blast reading the backstories people have given … Continue reading Links: Just Good Things

Hide Your Wallet

April’s New Releases, Part One

If you’re new to Hide Your Wallet, this is where we list new releases we’re pretty excited for in the coming month. Each reviewer has a book maximum (five per person), but we’ve separated HYW into two parts. The first HYW of the month will cover books that release from the 1st to the 14th. The second HYW will cover books released from the 15th to the end of the month. We also think this … Continue reading April’s New Releases, Part One

April Fool’s 2020: We Want to Help You Feel Better

April Fool’s 2020: We Want to Help You Feel Better

It’s time for the annual tradition of April Fool’s Day gags here at SBTB. I know so many people dislike April Fool’s Day, and heaven knows there is not a lot to joke about right now. But this year, I thought, why not distill the timeless goodest-ness of our favorite reading material into physical blanket form? Only instead of weighted blankets, we have…Smart Bitches Weightless Blankets. Yup, we want to take some of that stress … Continue reading April Fool’s 2020: We Want to Help You Feel Better

Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Shifter Knots

This HaBO request is from Deb, who is looking for a paranormal romance. Content warning for the description below: I read this book a long time ago and I can’t find it anywhere! The world knows about shifters and they are in power more than the humans I believe. A human lady who I think works for a newspaper was at a political rally of sort when she unknowingly put out a “mating” scent that … Continue reading HaBO: Shifter Knots

Hoyt, Friends to Lovers, & More

Books on Sale: The Chai Factor by Farah Heron & More

RECOMMENDED: The Chai Factor by Farah Heron is $1.99! Aarya really loved this one and gave it an A-:

The Chai Factor is very much a swoonworthy rom-com: it’s funny and sobering, it has witty dialogue and disquieting situations, and it’s sigh-worthy and rage-inducing. I laughed, I cried, and I cheered for Amira and Duncan. The Chai Factor is an essential book for your list of summer reads.

Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: Hero to Marry the Queen of Hearts

This HaBO is from Sam. The original request got lost in our inboxes, so Sam came back with a cocktail recipe as a bribe. It totally worked: I am trying to find a historical novel, might’ve been part of a series. I definitely read it between 2012 & 2016; I *think* it was published between 2007 & 2016. It seems to me the author was one of the major, more established, names in the game–someone … Continue reading HaBO: Hero to Marry the Queen of Hearts
