Books on Sale: Space Opera by Catherynne Valente & More

RECOMMENDED: Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente is $1.99! A sequel is coming out in September! Carrie gave this one an A-:

 I loved the book and would gleefully quote it all day. It made me feel happy and bubbly. It celebrated art of all kinds, even (possibly especially) shitty art. It made me feel hopeful and it made me laugh, and I love the message with which it begins and ends.

The Rec League: Closed Door Queer Romances

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

This Rec League comes from Katie! Hi, I am requesting this for a coworker who was lamenting that there are no adult closed door queer romances, as everything closed door is either YA or adult but not actually a romance because it is full of pain and struggles (no HEA). I brainstormed for a while and could only come up with YA titles. Help! Tara: Heather Rose Jones writes queer historical fantasy that fit the … Continue reading The Rec League: Closed Door Queer Romances

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

Goooood morning! It’s a slow content day so that means afternoon links has turned into a little morning treat. Might I suggest giving it a read over tea or coffee and maybe your favorite pastry. Also breaking news! I’m tired of it being hot. I am longing for fall or, dare I even say it, winter. I want to nest in my blankets or take a steamy bath without worrying about passing out. I also … Continue reading Links: Podcasts, Howie Duwett & More

Help A Bitch Out

HaBO: She Charges His Caravan

This HaBO is from Christine, who wants to find this book based on sample she read: I downloaded a sample of this book within the last few years and I lost track of it… but I’m still thinking about it! The story is set in a pre-industrial world, but I’m not sure if it was Western European-ish or from parts further east. I don’t know if there are fantasy/paranormal elements. There’s an arranged marriage, I’m … Continue reading HaBO: She Charges His Caravan

Books on Sale: Business or Pleasure by Rachel Lynn Solomon & More

RECOMMENDED: Business or Pleasure by Rachel Lynn Solomon is $1.99! Apologies if this is a leftover deal from the weekend. Elyse reviewed this one and gave it an A:

Business or Pleasure is a sex-positive, low-conflict celebrity rom com that worked out great for me. I think a lot of readers will enjoy this book (especially the sex positivity!), but it won’t work for anyone looking for angst.

Cover Snark: Suspenseful Llamas

The Final Truth by Roxanne Rustand. A very washed out cover. The bottom is a of a white llama in front of a mountain peak. The top half is a blonde woman's face, but she's cut off at the eyes.

Welcome back to Cover Snark! From Sara: WTF llamas?? I couldn’t help but share this cover I stumbled across. I stopped, my jaw dropped with a stuttered “What?!?” All the other covers in this series have a dog on them…and then…Llama!!! And a very serious, lip-pursing llama. Sarah: That llama has STORIES to TELL and TEA to SPILL. Carrie: Please tell me the llama is the narrator. Sarah: If the series is Montana Secrets…how many … Continue reading Cover Snark: Suspenseful Llamas

Get Rec’d with Amanda – Volume 69

We have reached Volume 69 of Get Rec’d! The pinnacle of funny numbers. And now that’s it; pack it up! Just kidding, Get Rec’d will still be continuing. I actually have two romance recommendations this time that I received from others, and I wound up buying one of them. I’ve also included some topical non-fiction and a memoir about trauma. Do you have any recommendations that you’d like to pass along? Leave them in the … Continue reading Get Rec’d with Amanda – Volume 69
