We are back with your regularly scheduled programming this afternoon! Is anyone else just tired? We’re barely two weeks into the new year and I’m so ready to nap forever. Between RWA, the news from Australia and Puerto Rico, and just trying to make it through the latest US election cycle, I am exhausted! I’d prefer to spend the next couple weeks in a blanket fort, eating macaroni and cheese. … Carina Press is launching a LGBTQ+ romance line. I hope this means other LGBTQ+ romance readers will be getting romances in the future, as I feel like the representation is always heavily skewed toward m/m. … Love virgin heroes? Frolic has a love letter to some great virgin heroes in romance. … It’s about time we had some Baby Yoda content on SBTB! I’m obsessed with this hashtag of #BabyYodaProblems. … So what if it’s 2020. I still want to share Syfy’s list of 2019 sheroes. The list really hits all the highlights, but are there any you feel are missing? … I recently found this Instagram account that blends fashion, photography, and animals. They’re also great for writing prompt inspiration! View this post on Instagram Съёмки с животными: во…

I’ve set aside my usual drink tonight for a glass of bubbly after I saw Twitter’s reaction to this week’s episode of The Bachelor. More on that later. Last we left with Peter asking Hannah B to come back on the show after they admitted they still had feelings for each other. That would mean Hannah B would have gone from The Bachelor to The Bachelorette to Dancing with the Stars (which she won) back to The Bachelor. That’s a hell cycle of reality TV that no one deserves. So does Peter quit the show for her? Does she move into the McMansion? Do they run off together and adopt Nick Viall as their child? Let’s see… Click for Nick Viall pretending to be a dinosaur We open with Peter and Hannah B still having a tear-filled conversation. Hannah says, “I don’t know if I made the right decision with you. This is hard. I let go of somebody who didn’t hurt my heart. And now he asks me to stay, and I don’t, like, know what to do now.” Peter tells Hannah he doesn’t know what to do, and they hug. Hannah jokes that they should “go catch a flight.” After a tense…

In case you missed it: I know last Hide Your Wallet we instituted some changes. Well now we have more, thanks to the comment left by Katie C. A lot of you expressed wanting to keep the wide breadth of new releases and Katie’s suggestion was pretty great. We’re still keeping our book maximums (five per person), but have added an extra HYW post per month, allowing another five books per person. The first HYW of the month will cover books that release from the 1st to the 14th. The second HYW will cover books released from the 15th to the end of the month. We also think this will help us feature books from smaller publishers who don’t have buy links up as quickly as the big five. Hope you like the new, new changes! And thanks again to this community for the feedback!
