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! 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.
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?
