Greetings, book eaters and treat people! It feels like it’s been ages since I last wrote in December. I spent the last week of the year happily playing with my 2022 reading spreadsheet, setting up my 2023 spreadsheet, eating cookies, and enjoying the cold. I am so excited to be back, and I have so much exciting stuff in store for you this year!
Also -- "I wrote for 20 minutes and then took a break to nap or listen to my romance audiobook (Astrid Parker Doesn’t Fail, it’s fantastic)." YESSS!! These books make the best sickday activities :)
So glad to hear you’re on the mend! I’m excited to read Rest is Resistance and am intrigued by You Just Need to Lose Weight as well. I had heard of her podcast but somehow got the impression that it was actually about staying fit (or whatever other euphemism we use these days to mean skinny and conventionally attractive) and therefore, didn’t even bother to look into it 🤦♀️
I so much enjoyed your incites and personal reflections in your reviews. Very engaging to read.
I am on my local library's waitlist for Rest is Resistance. I first heard about it from NPR's life kit podcast (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCAShFn6Fec) and now I am even more excited to read it.
Ohh I'm loving this book give away edition of the newsletter. This is going to be badgood. I'm very interested in The Black Unicorn!
Intrigued by Bushra Rehman's book. I recently read Brown girls and this seems to be a good follow up novel.
I would LOVE love medicine if still available! ❤️❤️❤️
Hello! I would be interested in There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill her Neighbor's Baby. I don't come across nearly enough Russian women writers.
