A Princess in Theory A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole is $2.99! This is the first book in her Reluctant Royals series and this seems to be a series that just keeps getting better with its books. Many readers loved how Alyssa writes consent, agency, and all sorts of other awesome and empowering things. However, some warn that this book takes several chapters to get into the swing of things. From acclaimed author Alyssa Cole comes the tale of a city Cinderella and her Prince Charming in disguise . . .  Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn’t have time for fairy tales…or patience for the constant e-mails claiming she’s betrothed to an African prince. Sure. Right. Delete! As a former foster kid, she’s learned that the only things she can depend on are herself and the scientific method, and a silly e-mail won’t convince her otherwise. Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo, shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. At the top of their list? His marriage. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can’t resist the chance to experience life—and love—without the burden of…

It’s Monday! Time for Cover Snark! Elyse: He’s checking to make sure his penis is still there isn’t he? Sarah: “Crap, did I lace my junk into my trousers again?!” Amanda: Oops, got your bepis. Tara: What if “Tough Guy” is the penis’s name? Sneezy: His pants seem to have some strange corset contraption. And why does he need to flex while putting on pants? From Karen: I’ve been seeing this for the last couple of days in newsletters for sale books and it makes me wonder what I’m seeing every time. I had to view the full size cover to realize that they’ve superimposed a woman’s face on the man’s torso but my imagination for what was going on below his belt didn’t go there. When you see it full size, then there’s the extra issue with his nipple looking at first like a blemish on her face. And what is that blue light? Mostly, this cover is a mess in my opinion and my response to it is “what were they thinking?” Am I right or do you all love it? Sarah: He’s picking her nose. Elyse: I’ve never done mushrooms but I feel like it would be…

We love the show Letterkenny for a host of different reasons. Since you might have a bit of time for tv watching, we figured we’d share everything we like about it. Letterkenny started as a series of shorts called “Letterkenny Problems,” which were then turned into a show when Crave, a Canadian subscription channel, picked up the series. Letterkenny is a fictional small town in Ontario, and the show focuses on Wayne, Katy, Daryl, Dan, and assorted other characters. Each episode is basically what the title card says: “There are 5000 people in Letterkenny. These are their problems.” We love this show a LOT. Ok, y’all, why do you love Letterkenny? Tara: If there’s one thing that will get me every time, whether I’m reading a book or watching a film or TV show, it’s when it has heart. Letterkenny has heart in spades, and I was first struck by that in the second episode, when Wayne and Katy throw a super soft birthday party for Daryl. Dan, Daryl, and Wayne I don’t want to spoil how that goes because it’s so lovely and I still treasure the memory of experiencing it the first time. I just love how it…
