On the Edge On the Edge by Ilona Andrews is $1.99! This is the first book in The Edge urban fantasy series and, I think, it’s the only series I haven’t read by Andrews. As usual for Andrews, the worldbuilding is great, though some readers said it took them longer to connect with the characters than in Andrews other series.

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. As always, if we missed any books that you’re particularly looking forward to, tell us all about them in the comments. Beauty Author: Christina Chiu Released: May 1, 2020 by 2040 Books Genre: Literary Fiction Amy Wong is an up-and-coming designer in the New York fashion industry; she is young, beautiful, and has it all. But she finds herself at odds with rival designers in a world rife with chauvinism and prejudice. In her personal life, she struggles with marriage and motherhood, finding that her choices often fall short of her traditional family’s expectations.

This is a silly episode about cake, desserts, and in the middle, a surprise party for Amanda. She thought she was logging in to talk about cake. I surprised her with a virtual pajama birthday party with Christina Lauren and Kristin Dwyer – and a lot of pictures of Adam Driver. Zeb is begging throughout the recording. We talk about cake and desserts. We discuss strange food combos. We’re very silly. We get a super-surprise sneak preview of their latest book! Come celebrate with us. Here’s a picture of Amanda’s birthday cake from Whiskful, who is taking orders for local pickup and delivery in Somerville, Cambridge, and the greater Boston area.
