Season 2, Episode 2: #shemademedoit Books + Titles Coming to The Big Screen for the Currently Reading Challenge

Kaytee and Meredith join their powers for good in Season 2, Episode 2! Can’t wait for you to tune in!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each host: an episode of a favorite podcast that gives a great glimpse into the book industry, and a book-related party that was completely amazing!

Next, we’ll remind you about our Bookshelf Thomasville coupon code for you: CURRENTLYLOVING will get you 10% off from our friends over there through the month of August! Enjoy, and be looking for a fantastic giveaway from them for our listeners this month as well.

Moving forward, we discuss our current reads for the week. Some strong opinions in this week’s current reads, friends. Hold onto your hankies.

We’ve got an update for you on our Slow But Steady reads as well. Be sure to look for a post on Instagram in which we ask you to chime in with your own Slow But Steady reads! If you’ve been looking at a book on your shelves for a long time, but you don’t want to commit to it as your “main” read, this is going to be JUST the segment for you. Let us know what you think!

For our deep dive, we are discussing the 8th category in the Currently Reading 2019 Reading Challenge, and we dive deep into Books that are becoming movies this year, as well as some of our favorites from the past.

Finally, this week, we finish with The Book that we’d like to press into your hands, readers. A non-fiction pick that will give you a whole new view on storms, and a YA series that will keep certain TV fans happy when their show has ended.

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!
