Spring is upon us. I wore short sleeves and sandals the other day in New England.

Also, if you haven’t tuned into out Twitch channel yet, this Sunday, some of us at the site will be playing silly Jackbox games at 2pm eastern. We also invite our audience members to play to!

Elyse: I just started Someone to Cherish by Mary Balogh. ( A | BN | K | AB )

All I Ever Wanted
A | BN | K | AB
Her books tend to be low conflict and lots of gentle courtship based on dialogue and I need that right now

Claudia: I’m saving that one (for no particular reason). I just finished a book that left me very, very annoyed so I’m taking my time picking my next one.

Tara: I watched The Go-Go’s documentary last week, so now I’m listening to Kathy Valentine’s autobiography, All I Ever Wanted. It’s so good, but I’ve only made it to where she’s 13 years old and it’s ROUGH sometimes. I’m so looking forward to taking in the rest of her journey.

EllenM: I saw the Go-Gos a few years ago when they were at Ravinia (an outdoor music venue in Chicago) and they were REALLY good!

Prospects of a Woman
A | BN | K | AB
Carrie: I am reading Prospects of a Woman by Wendy Voorsanger, about a woman in the California Gold Rush. I’m not sure what I think of it yet. I just finished a non-fiction collection of letters about a real woman in the California Gold Rush (The Letters of Dame Shirley) and that was fascinating.

EllenM: I just finished a Court of Silver Flames, which left me torn because

Show Spoiler
there were aspects I really enjoyed but also a pretty misogynistic pregnancy sub-plot that I HATE HATE HATED so much.

Currently continuing with the Elder Races series with Serpent’s Kiss, ( A | BN | K | AB ) which is my favorite one so far.

Kiki: I’m also reading A Court of Silver Flames! I have…very, VERY few positive things to say about the series as a whole (I straight up DNF’ed the third book) but I’m sticking around for my girl Nesta, who I love because she’s mean to all the people I would probably also be mean to.

EllenM: Yeah honestly Nesta is my favorite Maas heroine in a long while.

Love All Year
A | BN | K | AB
Shana: I’m almost finished with Love All Year, a holiday romance anthology. It’s a mixed bag, but my favorite so far is Celestine Martin’s cozy Yuletide story about a witch using a love potion on her closest friend and crush. There’s mistletoe, gingerbread, and only one bed! Right now I’m in the middle of Farah Heron’s “Making up with Eid Bae,” and it’s a delicious second chance romance.

Ok, just finished the book, and that Eid story was PERFECTION. So much food porn, and a super sweet feminist hero who’s happy to wear mehndi.

Sarah: Oh this sounds so good!

Catherine: Ooh, I will have to give that one a try! I am currently bingeing my way through Eloisa James’ Wilde series, because it is grant season at work and my brain is tired. Nothing like a reliable series to reread when you have a sad tired brain!

What are you reading? Let us know!
