Not Now, I’m Reading An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole

This week we’re discussing (in the most non-spoilery way we could manage, because y’all should definitely pick up a copy) Alyssa Cole’s phenomenal historical romance An Extraordinary Union. But first, we’re talking all about our current reads (and how we’re both in a bit of an original fiction rut, so lot’s of fanfiction recs again this week). And of course we’ll be wrapping up with what we have coming up next.

Not Now, I’m Watching Hannibal

 

The time has finally come for our most fangirly of episodes: Hannibal. This darkly beautiful show is about a cannibalistic serial killer and the team that works with and will eventually catch him, and we seriously have no idea how this show ever aired on NBC. But we’re glad it did. We talk the show, the lovely fandom, and our favorite fics. As always, we also talk about what we’re currently reading and what we have coming up next.
