What I’m Reading Now (12/14/20)

what I'm reading now


We’re getting down to the wire with 2020 and I’m not pissed about it. My Best Books of 2020 list is coming out on Thursday, so stay tuned!

And, I’m working on getting 3 bonus podcast episodes out to my patrons (2020 Goodreads Choice Awards Breakdown, My December Book Recommendations, and the December Superlatives episode). If you’d like to get access to the entire catalog of bonus podcast episodes plus other goodies, sign up to support the podcast on Patreon for $5/month.


See you in 2021 (2021 Winter Book Preview with Catherine from @gilmoreguide coming on January 6)!

Knock at Midnight


A Knock at Midnight by Brittany K. Barnett (September 8, 2020)
Powerful, eye-opening, and so much I wasn’t aware of. You can hear my more detailed thoughts on an upcoming bonus podcast episode for patrons (sign up here).

This Close to Okay


This Close to Okay by Leesa Cross-Smith (February 2, 2021)
I’m about 40% through this novel about two people who meet under precarious circumstances (my December Book of the Month pick) and I’m not sure what I think of it yet. It’s definitely different than I expected…sweeter? Maybe too sweet?

    I’ve got A Knock at Midnight in my Kindle–it was a Kindle daily deal last week! Believe it or not, my library doesn’t have it in any format. They didn’t have Shuggie Bain either, which was shocking considering all the accolades it received. I just finished that as well. Sad but really powerful. And totally immersive.

  5. You have me really curious about This Close to Okay. It was my BOTM, too, but I haven’t picked it up yet. I’ll wait for your final thoughts.

    I am currently reading Circe. It is fiction revolving around Greek Mythology. Not something I would normally be into. I can’t put it down!! Story telling at its finest! I’d be curious what you think of it.
