This week, Sarah and Amanda are talking about the book clubs, crafting classes, and reader gatherings Amanda is coordinating, running, or attending, and how much she is enjoying all of them. She has advice for anyone who might be thinking of joining an existing group, or starting their own romance reading group, too! We take a brief detour into discussing mental health, the changing symptoms of depression, and antidepressant medication, and then move on to reader email! Emily is looking for books that inspire self-care, and Kristen is looking for tips on organizing her TBR. And of course, we talk about what we’re reading and enjoying, too.
How do you organize your TBR? What books inspire you to be more kind, gentle, and caring of your fine self? Got a book club or reader gathering to recommend? We’d love to hear from you!

Today’s podcast transcript is sponsored by Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones. If you like JR Ward or Jeaniene Frost, you’ll love this paranormal romp that tickles not only the funny bone but other parts a little farther down as well.
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back after a century of exile. She is hurt. She is angry. And she is out for revenge.
But a century on one plane isn’t quite the same as it is on others, and she comes back to find a furious husband (who can still melt the polar ice caps with a single glance), a world in chaos, and an expanding hell dimension that is taking over our own plane of existence. She has three days to stop an apocalypse (that she may have accidentally started) and to soothe the savage beast that is her blisteringly hot soulmate.
Don’t miss the last book in the series that RT Book Reviews calls “…wickedly funny with true chilling danger…”
