Cozy seat in beautiful backyard flower gardenWelcome back to Whatcha Reading! It’s our first WR post of May 2024. Here’s what we’re reading at SBTB HQ:

Lara: Shana inspired me with an idea to get out of a reading slump. I’ve returned to a series that is totally different to what I had been trying to read: GA Aiken’s dragon series. I’m currently devouring How to Drive a Dragon Crazy ( A | BN | K | AB ) and it’s a bloodthirsty, lusty adventure. Finally I can settle into a book and actually want to read it to the end.

Sarah: No one writes over the top shifters like Aiken/Laurenston.

Lara: She is in a class entirely of her own.

Sarah: I am torn between audiobooks and am sampling them all, a buffet that likely will create some very strange dreams. I’m starting The Night Raven by Sarah Painter ( A | BN | K | AB ) – The Ward Witch is a related book in the same world, but the Raven series came first. I’m also going to listen to Death in the Spires by KJ Charles ( A | BN | K ), and Marple: Twelve New Mysteries, an anthology of remixes.

Elyse: I’m re-reading Remarkably Bright Creatures ( A | BN | K | AB ) for book club and crying over the mortality of a fictional octopus

Oh I just downloaded The Ward Witch! ( A | BN | K ) You’ll have to let me know what you think, Sarah.

Sarah: I liked it a lot! Very atmospheric, and a really neat mix of spooky, weird, and sweet.

Shana: I finished The Marquis Who Mustn’t by Courtney Milan a few days ago and I’m obsessed by how much I loved it. I even convinced my mom to read it (which hopefully won’t be weird once she gets to the sex).

Now I’m reading Honey and Spice by Bolu Babalola on audiobook and I love it just as much! Although, as a contemporary enemies to lovers romance with British college students it couldn’t be more different. Maybe it’s the banter in both? I’m a sucker for banter.

Claudia: I also taking a page from reading something radically different to combat at reading slump! I’m reading T. Kingfisher’s The Saint of Steel series, and I’m on the third book, Paladin’s Hope. ( A | BN | K )

Sarah: Update: Marple: Twelve New Mysteries in audio is EXTREMELY GREAT. Alex Kingston, Adjoa Andog, Miriam Margolyes, and others are reading the stories. I’m SO HAPPY.
