Episode 30: Books with Hype + What Friends and Family Pressed Into Our Hands

Kaytee and Meredith are back in your earbuds with a whole cartload of book recommendations!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: bear with us this week as we gush at each other about getting to meet in person for the first time.

Next, we discuss our current reads. We have some reads that surprised us this week, and we hope they surprise you, too, in all the best ways.

Our deep dive this week centers on the Currently Reading Challenge for 2019 and we are discussing the books that our friends and family members have pressed into our hands.

As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands. A children’s classic and a funny romantic comedy.

As per usual, time-stamped show notes are below with references to every book and resource we mentioned in this episode. If you’d like to listen first and not spoil the surprise, don’t scroll down!
