Best Book Ever

Aug 9, 2021

Listen, we don’t judge anyone for their book habits. But I came close when I heard about Lori’s book in the bathtub habits. After I revived myself from a dead faint, we discussed the strong female leads in Urban Fantasy books. Lori told me about how she is able to make reading a priority by changing the format of consumption depending on her life stage. And we discussed the sly humor and gender bending in this sometimes hyper-masculine genre.

The giant cookie cutter Lori and I bought on our Target sin-spiral is no longer available, but I highly recommend you keep your eyes peeled for one, so it can gather dust in a forgotten drawer of your house, too.
