Hey hey! It’s time for the primary Whatcha Studying of August!
Let’s get into it!
Catherine: I’m on a T. Kingfisher binge! Minor Mage ( A | BN | K ) which is ready in the identical universe as her Paladin romances. That is elevating sure expectations which can or might not be met by the plot, however I’m having fun with the journey immensely.
Carrie: I’m studying two very completely different books – the nice and cozy and feminist Love in Colour by Boba Babalola and the 1940’s tremendous cynical noir Nightmare Alley by William Lindsay Gresham. ( A | BN | K )
Maya: I simply completed the most recent honey badger e book — Breaking Badger by Shelly Laurenston. It was precisely what I wanted and an ideal pairing with The Suicide Squad. Harley has large honey badger vitality!!
Susan: …Oh my god that’s the most excellent description of her I’ve ever seen.
I’m bouncing between two very tonally completely different books! One is Cherí, My Future, ( A | BN | K ) which is an m/m manga in regards to the epic (and fully one-sided) rivalry between a patissiere and a sweet-maker, though I at the moment need somebody to push the protagonist right into a puddle. The opposite is The Lady From the Different Facet by Nagabe, which is a sluggish, understated, weirdly stunning horror manga about oppression and curses.
Sarah: Maya, I simply began Breaking Badger, and it occurred to me that one of many causes I can learn this a lot violence (which in any other case could be a ‘nope’ for me) is that inside the world, the characters, as shifters, can soak up a whole lot of harm so I do know they’re going to be okay, AND they’re going to dish out simply as a lot as they should endure if no more. The ferocity is COMFORTING.
Tara: I’m studying Chemistry Classes by Jae, ( A | BN | K ) which is a friends-to-lovers story the place two finest associates are clearly in a relationship and are in denial about it. It’s very cute. In audio, I’m listening to Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin Kobes Du Mez ( A | BN | K ) and it’s equal components wonderful and infuriating. I actually admire the way it’s serving to me perceive the forces that formed the evangelical context I grew up so I do know the why behind a lot of what was mentioned.
Kiki: I’m listening to The Intimacy Experiment by Rosie Danan and actually loving it. It’s unintentionally the second e book with a relationship between a intercourse employee and a non secular chief that I’ve learn just lately—the opposite being The Lord I Left by Scarlett Peckham (which made me cry greater than as soon as)
Catherine: I liked The Intimacy Experiment a lot!
