It’s the first Whatcha Reading of 2023! How are we all starting off? Strong? A big of a slump?
Shana: I just glommed I Like You Like That by Kayla Grosse ( A ) in a day. I don’t read a lot of bodyguard romances, but this hit the spot for me.
Next up on my TBR is Asia Monique’s Flower Sisters series ( A ) . Each book is themed around a heroine’s love language. I’m starting with the “words of affirmation” sister. (edited)
Sarah: I am currently reading Rest is Resistance, alongside An Unseen Attraction by KJ Charles. ( A | BN | K | AB ) I had meant to read Rest is Resistance over winter vacation but it was Not a Restful Time (we flew Southwest). So I am catching up.A | BN | K ) because I was 70+ on the wait list but the audiobook is ready for me to borrow. Wow, thank you librarians!
Carrie: Rest is Resistance blew my mind
Also totally waiting for my copy of Spare to show up today
Claudia: I read Nights of the Plague (non romance) over our winter break and decided that I can read about a pandemic as long as it takes place on a fictional island 100 years ago, but that’s about it. I’m still sort of trying to decide what to read next!
Kiki: I have been largely unable to focus on physically reading for several months now and have essentially only been using audiobooks (which is wonderful but also limiting on what I can access) so I’m attempting to force myself to slow my brain down enough to read words on a page by spending some time with my very cherished first edition of The Secret by Julie Garwood. ( A )
Sneezy: I’m so excited for my turn at Rest is Resistance at the library!
Go Away Romeo by Paintword just got upgraded to an original webtoon. Congratulations Paintword! It’s the story of Romeo and Juliet told from the perspective of Rosaline, who had gotten pregnant by Romeo. So far the art looks great, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes.
So whatcha reading? Tell us below!
