Happy Wednesday, book friends! It’s hard to believe that it’s the last Wednesday in November, but the fact that my Christmas tree is twinkling in the corner means it must be true.
Between being back in Ohio for the holidays and the colder temperatures, I spent a lot of time curled up on the couch with my books last week. That means I’ve got plenty of updates, so let’s jump in!

I finished Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow* on my parents’ couch the day after Thanksgiving. This was a “stay up past bed time to see how it ends” kind of book, and I spent about the last half hour or so in tears. So, naturally, I loved this book. It was incredibly emotional and heartbreaking at times, but it’s a rich and real story about complicated friendships and creativity. It’s also currently on Backorder at Bookshop.org, which I’m guessing is part hype and partly due to the sales the site’s been running.
Last night, I also wrapped up To Get to the Other Side* by Kelly Ohlert, which comes out next Tuesday, December 6th. It was cute, but it did feel very much like a debut in some ways. My full review will go up later this week, so stay tuned.
It’s holiday reading season! Last night, I started Kiss Her Once For Me, which I’m buddy reading with a friend to kick off my Christmasy reads. I’m about two pages in, so I’ve formed no real opinions on it yet, but I am excited to dive in. I know that people really liked Cochrun’s previous book, The Charm Offensive, so I’m hopeful I’m in for a real treat here.
On audio, I’m still more in a podcast mood than an audiobook one, but I am slowly making my way through What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat.
Up Next & On to You
For the next few weeks, I’ll be trying to get in the holiday spirit by reading my holiday-themed TBR. It, like my Witchtober list, is probably a bit ambitious, but I do usually get a good bit of reading done during the winter break from work.
Are you reading any wintery or holiday-themed books this season, book friends?

One of these days, I will read Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow. I am continuing to read Christmasy books but also some ARCs I have for review and blog tours.
Sounds like plenty of good reads are happening! I’m excited to finally be into my Christmas reads.
I just finished To Get to the Other Side this morning. It was cute. There were some great rom-com moments. I thought there was a bit of repetition with respect to the hero and heroine’s issues, but there was a lot of things I really enjoyed. Solid read for me. I told you Tomorrow would bring the tears. It savagely broke my heart.
Yeah, I felt it was repetitive in that regard as well. To the point that it made the characters feel a bit one-dimensional because there was so much emphasis on a particular issue and way of coping with it. But it was very cute!
Kiss me Once for Me sounds really good. I’ll be looking forward to your review!
