Happy Wednesday, book friends! This week’s post will be short and sweet because we’ve got a guest post up on our Medium site! It’s been a while since I’ve had anyone new ask to write for our What We’re Reading Wednesday column, so it’s pretty exciting to meet a new book lover with a weekly reading update to share.
As for me, I’m well into Kiss Her Once for Me and am really enjoying it over all (though, one thing is really bugging me that I’ll be sure to bring up in my review). I was super excited to see that there’s an Australian Cattle Dog in the story, and even more excited to learn that he is called Paul Hollywood. My pup, Azula, is an Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd mix, so I’m enjoying seeing how Cochrun captures the spunky energy of the breed. There’s almost certainly an ACD in her life.
Okay, that’s enough out of me for today! Please do support our guest writer over on Medium this week!
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.

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”
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?
