What We’re Reading Wednesday, November 9th

Happy Wednesday, book friends! I spent my weekend in the kitchen, baking and meal prepping up a storm because it’s been so long since I’ve had time to bake and I went a little overboard. But, I went into a hectic week with food at the ready, for which I am grateful. 

Yesterday was election day here in the states, so all the talk was about voting and waiting anxiously for the results. Personally, I don’t participate in watching live coverage as the votes are being counted, because it feels like a lot of drama for something you can’t actually impact at that point. I prefer to check the final results in the morning, so here I am scrolling my inbox to see who won my state of Pennsylvania. 

While I catch up to the people who stay awake past 9pm, let’s catch up on what I read this past week.

Recent Reads

I finished The Kiss Curse a few days after Halloween, marking the official end to my spooky reading season. I enjoyed it much more than the previous book in the series, The Ex Hex, and it was a great way to round out Witchtober. My full review is available here: Get Bewitched by “The Kiss Curse”

Current Reads

I’m still working my way through Tom Felton’s memoir. So far, it’s fine. Felton has a decent sense of humor and narrates the book well. It does feel more “person who has led a kind of interesting life tells stories about it” rather than one of those memoirs where someone famous for acting reveals their amazing writing chops. Which is fine! But hasn’t been enough to compete with me finally listening to the podcast Maintenance Phase and deciding to make it my whole personality for the foreseeable future. 

In print, I’ve started Beth O’Leary’s The No-Show. I’m enjoying it, but I’m mostly just bracing myself because everyone tells me there is a twist, and I can’t for the life of me imagine what it might be. 

Up Next & On to You

I am mounting up a holiday-themed TBR for the Christmas season, but we’re not quite there yet. So, I’ll be chipping away at my NetGalley shelf and selecting one of my eARCs to read next. Which one? Who knows! 

What about you, book friends? What have you been reading lately, and how is it treating you?

  1. I don’t watch the counting either. It’s easy enough to see the results when I wake up and watching won’t change the outcome. It was mostly incumbents being reelected, most red seats going to reds, blue seats going to blues. I think I saw one flip. Nothing too groundbreaking. My local races went as expected too. I predict we will maintain the status quo and have two more years of nothing much being accomplished. I am eager to see hear how you make out with The No-Show.
