March 17th, 2018: Things are crazy in romancelandia this week (wait, when aren’t they?!). Racism, crossing boundaries, and publisher closing, oh my! I’m also talking about the books I read – Elizabeth Hoyt and Dria Andersen -- as well as what I'm reading this weekend (Susan Cliff, Talia Hibbert, and Jeaniene Frost). Come tell me about your week and what you’re reading at the moment!

Whatcha Reading (March 3rd, 2018) I’m sorry about the audio quality on this one; I’m not sure what happened after I finished exporting the file. One day I will know what the hell I’m doing. Today is not that day. *sigh* I start off with some good ol’ romancelandia WTFery, thanks to a romance that Lauren found where the heroine’s dog dies and comes back as a man, whom she then falls for. WHAT. (I still do not know, but PASS!) From there, I move into some more serious topics in romancelandia, mainly the Ripped Bodice’s 2017 diversity in publishing report, which is, uh, NOT GOOD, to say the least. Finally, I'm talking about books by Lia Riley, Elyse Springer, and Kelly Bowen, including quotes and sex scenes (OF COURSE!). As always, I wrap things up with my current read and audiobook (Naima Simone and Eloisa James, respectively). Have a great weekend everyone and happy reading!

Whatcha Reading (February 24th, 2018) The podcast is baaaaaack! I talk a bit about why I was gone for so long, and what the podcast's future looks like, before getting right into the book discussions for the week. (I skipped doing anything romance Twitter related and didn't get a chance to record the blog recap.) I'm talking about books by Ilona Andrews, Lisa Kleypas, Katee Robert, and Penny Reid. As always, I wrap things up with my current read and audiobook (Lia Riley and Kelly Bowen, respectively).
