Featured image for Whatcha Reading? September 2021, Part Two

We are closing out September! Can you believe it? October is busy busy (for me at least), but hopefully we can all squeeze in some quality reading time. Sarah: I’m currently reading Payback’s a Witch and oh wow am I enjoying it so freaking much. Chasing and clever and beautiful bits of writing. Carrie: I just finished reading Praying With Jane Eyre which I found to be transformative – truly one of those books that … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? September 2021, Part Two

Whatcha Reading, Part The First!

old book on the bench in autumn park

Ooops! Usually, to prepare for the Whatcha Reading? posts, I have an automation tied to my site calendar (the site has its own calendar) (I love calendars) that will post a message to our internal Slack asking, well, the obvious question. Somehow, and I suspect it was fingers being clumsy on my phone, I accidentally turned off that automation (darn!) so the query didn’t go off. So this is a shorter, but no less heartfelt … Continue reading Whatcha Reading, Part The First!

Whatcha Reading? August 2021, Part Two

We’re approaching the end of August and that means it’s time for our second monthly Whatcha Reading post! We want to hear all about what you’ve been reading, though here are some of our books from the month! Shana: I’m halfway into the audiobook of Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers. It’s a little slow plot-wise, but really hitting my sweet spot with its caring space collective. I also just started One Last … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? August 2021, Part Two

Beautiful English style garden with comfortable hammock on sunny day

Welcome back! We’re wrapping up July with our second Whatcha Reading of the month! Shana: I’m reading Jasmine Guillory’s latest, While We Were Dating. So far, it might be my favorite of hers. The mental help rep seems strong and I adore the cinnamon roll meets playboy hero. I hope I love the ending as much as I’m enjoying the beginning! I also just finished the ebook of the AI Who Loved Me by Alyssa … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? July 2021, Part Two

It’s July and I suppose the season of vacation reading for some of us. Or maybe just finding a nice air conditioned cafe to read in? Claudia: I’m just done with People We Meet on Vacation, another long-awaited library drop, and taking time to choose the next book! Tara: I just finished One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston and I am ruined. I don’t know how I’m going to read anything else this week, because … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? July 2021, Part One

It’s Whatcha Reading time! This is where we get to talk about what we’ve been reading, whether it was a good reading month, a slow one, or just plain terrible. It’s also a post that is terribly bad for all of our wallets. Carrie: I am reading A Most Remarkable Creature: The Hidden Life and Epic Journey of the World’s Smartest Birds of Prey by Jonathan Meiburg. As a result I have a new animal … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? June 2021, Part Two

May is on its way out and that means it’s time for our second Whatcha Reading of the month. Time is just flying by! Spring allergies have sent me into a severe slump, but fingers crossed the pollen will be done doing its business soon. Carrie: I’m almost finished with Aetherbound, a book that starts in hard science fiction dystopia and then swivels around to a fairly utopian state of bliss. It’s by E.K. Johnston. … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? May 2021 Edition, Part Two
