Whatcha Reading? January 2021 Edition, Part Two

Cozy winter still life: cup of hot coffee and book with warm plaid on windowsill against snow landscape from outside.Welcome back to Whatcha Reading! Hope this week has lifted your spirits in some way, with or without some good book noises.

Here’s what we’ve been reading lately:

Carrie: I just started Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells ( A | BN | K | AB ) and also Metazoa: Animal Life and the Birth of the Mind by Peter Godrey-Smith. ( A | BN | K | AB )

Shana: I’m reading Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, ( A | BN | K | AB ) the hosts of the Call Your Girlfriend podcast. It’s basically a memoir about the ups and downs of their friendship. Memoirs are my least favorite genre but so far I don’t hate this. I’m also reading Edge of Glory by Rachel Spangler, a f/f romance between an Olympic snowboarder and skier

Sarah: Shana, I LOVE Edge of Glory. Tara recommended it and wow did I like it.

Tara: Oh yes! I’ve read everything Rachel Spangler wrote and that’s my favourite by far.

Catherine: I’m rereading Faking It by Jennifer Crusie, ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) which is a gloriously hilarious rom com with heists and art fraud and complicated families and so many secret identities. It’s enormous fun, though I’m not at all sure the main premise makes sense after the big reveal.

Shana: Yay, I’m glad to hear all the love for Edge of Glory! Catherine, I just read Faking It thanks to Carrie, and I thought it was the perfect comfort read. But I agree that serious suspension of disbelief was needed.

Catherine: I mean, it’s a delight! Eve and Louise ! The many many closet scenes! The tiny tiny teeth! But just don’t look too closely at the plot…

Elyse: I haven’t been able to focus enough for a book. I’m doing a lot of TV knitting and sleeping a lot.

Tara: I’ve been listening to the audiobook of Songteller by Dolly Parton and I am loving it.

Lara: I’m indulging in The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon. ( A | BN | K | AB ) When talking about the book, Elyse mentioned competence porn and I was hooked. I only started the book last night, but so far I’m loving it!

Catherine: Ooh, that one was fun! I’ll be interested to hear what you think of it!

Claudia: Elyse, same here! So many DNFs.

Sarah: I’m reading Wolf Rain by Nalini Singh and am trying to savor it because I’m coming to the end of the published books in the series. I’m having trouble doing that because it’s so freaking good.

Sneezy: I’ve just started Queer: A Graphic History by Meg-John Barker and Jules Scheele, and I’m SUPER EXCITED FOR IT!! YES THE FUCK PLEASE ILLUSTRATE QUEER THEORIES IN PRETTY PICTURES, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT MY BRAIN CRAVES!

Ellen: I am currently reading Winter’s Orbit by Evelina Maxwell ( A | BN | K | AB ) and so far it is sooooo good and has al the sci-fi and romance tropes I love and I cannot wait to review it!!
