Whatcha Reading? September 2021, Part Two

Recommended Posts

http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/WP/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Fotolia_17773066_S.jpgWe 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 ( A | BN | K ) 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( A | BN | K ) which I found to be transformative – truly one of those books that makes you look at everything differently. By Vanessa Zoltan.

Elyse: I’ve been dealing with anxiety/tired brain so I’ve been going through my knitting pattern books to relax, mostly 52 Weeks of Socks and 52 Weeks of Shawls by Laine

The Bright and Breaking Sea
A | BN | K | AB
Shana: I’ve been having trouble settling into another book since I finished The Galaxy and the Ground Within by Becky Chambers. Nothing is hitting that same comforting spot. I’m seriously considering just rereading it.

EllenM: I recently read and really enjoyed The Bright and Breaking Sea by Chloe Neill, a swashbuckling alternative history sea adventure with a hefty scoop of romance. After that I decided to start Neill’s urban fantasy series, the Chicagoland Vampires. I’m about 3 books in and they are pretty fun so far–light, sexy, sorta silly (in a good way).

Sneezy: My Irresistible Ex recently got its official translation on Line Webtoon!!!! (There’s a section on the app, so I assume the site too, for fan translations, though I have trouble navigating it on the app.) It’s a second chance romance with Mysterious reason for breaking up, celebrities, albeit sly but straight forward ex pining for their ex wife in their ex wife’s face, a woman who knows what she wants being pretty great at boundaries, her best friend (who I’m already calling as the second fem lead) serving up great hair, competence porn as the main character’s agent and PR person.

And also really pretty art!

It’s only just started though. I’ve high hopes for it, so fingers crossed!

Tara: I’ve started listening to Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay, ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) which is excellent and I definitely recommend in audio.

On my Kindle, I’ve been reading Match to Love by Johana Gavez, which is a VERY cute f/f romance (at least, very cute so far). It has a professional tennis player and a law student meeting through fanfic.

Susan: I’m in the middle of moving house, but I took a break from the box mines when I found the second volume of Letters for Lucardo. ( A ) It’s an m/m vampire romance, where the young-looking vampire is smitten with a scrivener in his 50s-60s. Volume 2 is all about trying to negotiate class differences and family drama, which is obviously aggravated by the whole vampire politics thing

EllenM: I have both volumes but I haven’t read them yet!!!
