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.

Not Now, I’m Reading The Ruin of a Rake by Cat Sebastian

This week we’re talking about Cat Sebastian, our favorite m/m historical writer, and her latest book, The Ruin of a Rake. There’s a lot of happy sighing and flailing happening. We also talk our current favorite and least favorite reads (Kay continues to fail at finding new contemporary YA to read, so feel free to rec your favorites) and what we’re up to in the coming weeks.

Not Now, I’m Reading Fanfic on AO3

This week we’re doing something a little different. We’ll be discussing our current favorite reads, as per usual, but we’re also going to give you an introduction to AO3/Archive of Our Own, our favorite fanfiction/fanworks archive. We’ll share our tips and tricks for finding the perfect fics for you and how to get the most out of the user interface. It’s a lot more fun that it sounds!

Not Now, I’m Reading And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

This week is the second of our two very special Not Now, I’m Reading Something Terrible episodes. Chelsea and Kay use our powers for evil: to pick a book we think the other person will think is awful and make them read it. This week we’re reading And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Chelsea hates mysteries. We both wax rhapsodic about Dan Stevens’ narration. Kay recommends Chelsea just watch the BBC miniseries. See the gif of Aidan Turner as Philip Lombard for, uh, reasons.

Not Now, I’m Reading The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

This week is the first of our two very special Not Now, I’m Reading Something Terrible episodes. Chelsea and Kay use our powers for evil: to pick a book we think the other person will think is awful and make them read it. Let’s just say it was a success. Kay rants a lot about worldbuilding and bagels. Chelsea laughs at her pain. This episode we’re talking The Iron King by Julie Kagawa.
