It’s our second Whatcha Reading of the month, which means that April is nearly over! Let’s talk about some things we’ve been reading (or not!).
Sarah: I am exhausted after Passover (chag sameach, folks, enjoy breaking Passover with all the carbs you can eat!) so I am reading magazines through my library. I’m happily reading back issues of Cross Stitcher, Real Simple, and some overseas magazines, and I’m slowly, slowly savoring my last ever issue of Bitch magazine.
Lara: I’ve been in a bit of a depressive slump and struggling to sleep. So I’ve had many hours to read but no energy to actually invest in a story. Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History by Tori Telfer to the rescue! The short stories of women killers in history held my attention, but I only needed to focus for short stretches. Perfect.
Shana: I just finished Light from Uncommon Stars. It was beautiful and inventive, but darker than I expected…I found the internalized transphobia really hard, and the moments of violence too. But it gets to a lovely place in the end. So now I’m just about to start Duke, Actually by Jenny Holiday. I didn’t get around to reading it over Christmas but it’s never too late for a winter holiday romance. (edited)
Carrie: I just started The Hacienda by Isabel Canas, ( A | BN | K | AB ) and it’s not a slow burn story. Usually in a haunted house story thing build up but the hacienda in question is not messing around!
