On this week’s episode of Currently Reading, Meredith and Kaytee are discussing:

  • Bookish Moments: a new book podcast and a seasoned parenting tip

  • Current Reads: an eye-opener, a creepy read, a missed opportunity, a huggable book, a new book from a favorite author, and an under-the-radar gem. We’ve got it all!

  • Deep Dive: what could be better about your reading life?

  • Book Presses: a book that shows you all the dirty laundry and one that is cinematic
