Happy Wednesday, book friends! We’re halfway through the week, and I’m deep in the midst of allergy season with plenty of sniffles and sneezes. It’s been a quiet start to the week, though, sneezes aside. I’ve got a loaf of sourdough bread rising in the kitchen, and Azula is all curled up next to me on the couch. Very cosy vibes, in other words.
I’ve got three books going, plus the audiobook I just started last night, so let’s get to the weekly reading updates!
True to my word, I’ve been focusing on ARCs lately. I finished Famous for a Living*, which was really cute and a nice palate cleanser after so many meh rom com reads lately. You can check out my review here.
I also started and finished Annabel Monaghan’s Same Time Next Summer* in the span of a few days. I laughed, I cried, I can’t wait to share my review closer to this book’s publication date (June 6th). Suffice it to say, this one solidifies Monaghan as an auto-read for me for the future.
I’m slowly making my way through Modern Tarot, one card at a time. It’s been interesting, since some of Tea’s interpretations of the cards are quite different from the meanings I’m used to.
As for Women Without Kids, I’m savoring that experience a bit as well. I’m already in the second chapter and the book is feeling too short because I am enoying feeling seen and validated by the words and don’t want them to end.
Fiction-wise, I picked up The Adventures of Amina Al-Sarafi as a quick break for all the contemporary romances that fill my ARC catalog. It’s kind of a long book, so “quick” may not be the best word for it, but so far I’m really enjoying it and expect I’ll make my way through it relatively quickly.
I also started a new audiobook, Missing Witches: Recovering True Histories of Feminist Magic. So far I’m adjusting to the narration style, which I hope to get used to. Apparently the authors host a podcast, which I didn’t realize, so I’m coming in fresh off the book description.
Up Next & On to You
I have a handful of June ARCs that I need to get to, including Everything’s Fine* by Cecilia Rabess (out June 6th) and The Wife App* by Caroyln Macker (out June 27th). So, once I finish my pirate adventure, I’ll dig into those in publication order.
What about you, book friends? What have you been reading lately, and how is it going?

That does sound supremely cozy, please enjoy it for me! I’m sneezing like crazy these days too. Stupid allergies.
I loved the Adventures of Amina so hope that you continue to enjoy it. I’ve still got one May release to read for my ARCs before I start on my June ones. I don’t have many books at the moment for the later months though so I’m hoping to be all caught up fairly soon.
Best of luck in getting all caught up!
Being down on the southern coast we have worked well past the spring sniffles and are more into swimming weather down here. I wish I could trade, not that the allergies that come with the first signs of spring are any fun. Love the cozy vibes you have going, though. I’m looking forward to picking up Chakraborty’s book, so happy to hear you’re enjoying it.
