#106: Harper Felt Like Such a Cat Lady

June 10, 2021
Harper celebrated her birthday over lunch with the ladies from Ylva Publishing, which was lots of fun. And thanks to Carrie for the unexpected prezzie!
Her next book, About That Kiss, is about to be sent to the editor, before we take a few days off next week. And she’s decided to take up her previously discarded book and try to finish it.
Our favourite podcasters Fi and Jane made a hilarious video to announce their upcoming book.
 
We watched season two of Feel Good, which we highly recommend. We’ve also started on the reboot of In Treatment
Caroline’s book this week is Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes. It’s one of her first novels and deals with addiction, which sounds heavy, but it’s a lovely, hopeful book.

#105: Harper Is Her Own Favourite Author

June 3, 2021
We were absent for two weeks for the best possible reason: Harper wrote a new book! And she had so much fun doing it.
She has also discovered the joy of reading her own books, which she’s never done before. This has led to her doing a group readalong of If You Kiss Me Like That in her Facebook Group.
 
During our two weeks absence we watched a lot of TV. We loved It’s a Sin but tears were shed. We also enjoyed the third and final season of Shrill. And our highlight was Mare of Easttown with a stellar performance from Kate Winslet (and the whole cast.) 
 
Caroline’s book of the week is How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House by Cherie Jones. It’s a beautifully written book, but a hard read that won’t be for everyone.

#104: Harper Is Smitten With Her New Niece

May 12, 2021
We’re back after our absence last week, brought on by Harper’s current at-home writing retreat. She’s going all-out on writing a Hollywood romance and is making amazing progress, because of not doing anything else or reading any news.
 
After the season finale of Line of Duty, we rewatched the first three seasons of Unforgotten and a desperate to watch the fourth one. We also started on Dexter again, which is very bloody.
Caroline's book of the week is Good Company by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney. A pleasant read that gets 4.5 stars.
Harper, on the other hand, is reading an iconic lesbian romance.
 
In other exciting news, we’ve both had our first vaccine jab and were able to go have dinner at a restaurant for the first time in months. And we welcomed a new member in our family.

#103: Harper Has Been Overly Sex-Educated

April 29, 2021
This week we talk about our little glamping break in the woods. Before the break, Harper made a difficult choice about her work-in-progress.
 
We’ve been obsessed with Line of Duty and rewatched the previous seasons. We started Mare of Easttown and we wish we hadn’t because there’s only one episode a week! 
 
Caroline managed to finish a very long book in the woods: Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart. It’s a difficult read at times, but a beautiful book that deserves many stars.

Next in Line for Love is on sale for a limited time.
 
We binged two shows over the weekend: The One (interesting and suspenseful) and Everything's Gonna Be Okay (very funny and touching.) We also enjoyed the first episode of Rebel as we both have a deep love for Katey Sagal.

#101: Harper Had an Easter Bunny That She Used to Know

April 8, 2021
At Your Most Beautiful is out and some reviews have been quite amusing! Launches are still stressful, even after so many books.
 
We had a sedate Easter weekend which involved yummy oysters with Harper’s mother-in-law and beer brewed by Harper’s sister.
 
Our entertainment has been very Flemish this past week, with tv shows Déjà Vu and Beau Séjour. We’re also enjoying Line of Duty very much.
 
Caroline’s book of the week is A Dark Matter by Doug Johnstone, part of the Skelfs series. A pleasant mystery series with some lesbian interest to it.

#98: Harper Is Her Own Humour Machine

March 18, 2021
With spring on its way, Caroline has developed some green fingers, but is hoping for some listener advice. Harper has been experiencing some existential dread because of a lot of bad news in the past couple of weeks, but this song has helped her get over it.
Harper’s in the honeymoon phase of her new book. Meanwhile we got the edits back on At Your Most Beautiful.
Two Hearts Alone is discounted to $0.99 until the end of this week!
 
Harper’s been working on her French by listening to some songs on repeat. We’ve also been watching Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby, but Harper wishes Monica would come out of the closet already.
 
Caroline’s book of the week is one she read a couple of months ago: Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson. This expansive family saga, set in Yorkshire, gets 5 stars!

#97: Harper Is Having the Period From Hell

March 11, 2021
We’re back after a short break. Harper has started writing her new book, which features an unexpected but not unknown main character.
 
 
We watched a lot of television during our time off, from the PSA for lockdown that is Contagion to the very of-the-times Ginny and Georgia. And watching The Mindy Project has led us to conclude that Harper is Mindy and Caroline is Danny. 
 
Caroline’s book tip of the week is Writers and Lovers by Lily King.
