I bought the tagged book for my kindle, which I‘ve packed in my purse in case of Thanksgiving with the in laws/too many people in one place anxiety. Hopefully I can sneak off to a quiet corner and read if it gets bad. Here‘s Sophie in her Xmas jammies for your holiday viewing pleasure. We took our holiday card photo tonight- she was not pleased. #catsoflitsy

I cried and sighed all through this book. It was lovely to read a romance between two women who supported each other and helped each other achieve their goals. 😭😭😭😍😍😍

Oh goodness, this book was so sweet! And feministy. And romantic. It takes up women‘s roles in the sciences and arts, lesbian/bisexual love, the ways we can be hurt in relationships. There was sexy sex that wasn‘t too graphic or awkward. I signed up for updates from the author because this book was so in my wheelhouse. Do recommend. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Loving this F|F historical romance so far! The #furbeast seems unimpressed, though. #romantsy

This is very sweet so far! I'm rooting for them, and also hoping they don't do anything stupid like stop communicating. >_>

(I hate the trope where everything goes wrong because people don't talk to each other. I've been with my wife for 14 years, married for three; we have never argued. That works because we COMMUNICATE. Healthy adult relationships ftw.)

Overall, I enjoyed this f/f historical romance. I love star gazing, but the mathy/sciencey aspects aren't quite my jam, but I still liked the characters and enjoyed the ending so much! Can't wait to discuss this tomorrow at our Diverse Romance book club!

Two days ago, we all thought everyone at my work was losing their jobs. Yesterday I worked 12 hours to cover for a friend. Today I‘m working all alone. Desperately want to read this one but am too emotionally and physically drained to do anything but watch reality tv and snack when I get home 😭

Bookzombie I hope things at work get better. Sometimes we all just need to veg mentally in our off time. 💗 4mo

The Hour 18 #24in48 challenge is about romance novels, which is lucky as I just finished the tagged book! I read a fair amount of Romance (more when I‘m not on a book award committee). There are so many great authors writing Romance now; some favourites are Alyssa Cole, Courtney Milan, Jackie Lau, Cat Sebastian, and, now, Olivia Waite. This book was lovely (aside from the ableist metaphors). Highly recommend!

I‘m taking a break from packing (and my audiobook) to eat a late lunch and read a little romance. How‘s your #24in48 going?

book_princessBritt Getting a little antsy but it‘s fun to be a part of something this big! 5mo
ness @book_princessBritt Same! I want the rain to stop so I can walk my dog (and listen to audiobooks, natch). 5mo
RebL I don‘t feel the pressure of making a full 24, so it‘s pretty chill. The kids are having a moon walk party (Moonpies for everyone!), so I‘ve had lots of reading breaks. Later, I‘m having a coke with a friend. Ergo, not too much antsy-ness, but loving a weekend of shared dedicated to reading. @book_princessBritt @ness 5mo
ness @RebL Sounds lovely! I‘ve done the full 24 hours before, but I don‘t feel the pressure to do it again, either. It has been lovely to listen to audiobooks while unpacking and take breaks to read a few chapters, too. 5mo

Welllllll this was a fun read at the end of June - fun both for the F/F romance AND the sense of finding one‘s true work and valuing it - and best is the strong, clear message about women in science. 4.5⭐️ for a lovely fun read that has many layers and cuts to the heart of how the Victorian women of science did so much more than we now know.

Loved it! Did I read the last third or so while unable to sleep last night? You bet. Did it soothe the anxiety I was feeling? You know it. Am I amped that it's the first in a series? Hell Yeah! A lovely look at science, art, and personal passion. Plus: historical f/f!

What a pointedly enjoyable book! The romance is fun, of course, but also the science and art and pursuit of something that includes all of it and acknowledges what women have always wanted to do and to be. My final book for June!

Lady scientists and artists taking down the patriarchy!!! It was amazing!!

(Which is all I have right now bc I‘m waiting on an Amtrak train that was supposed to arrive at 830pm and now won‘t get here until almost 11pm and I‘ve been stuck in this crappy train station since about 5:30pm. This book kept me from murdering people.)

I was out of town visiting family all weekend and got no reading done. So my plan tonight now that we've walked the nature park (Peri and friend pictured), is to eat supper, watch the very last episode of Veep, and then catch up on my reading.
