Hey everybody! It’s Judith from Binge on Books and today you better get your one-click finger ready as you listen to this very special and BONUS edition of my monthly podcast!
Joining me are three amazing book bloggers from all different corners of the book world: Vilma from Vilma’s Book Blog, Abby from Crime by the Book, and Elisabeth Lane from Cooking Up Romance! Each of us talks our three most anticipated reads of 2016 and believe me, there is a little something for everybody, from fantasy fairy-tale retellings to grisly Swedish crime fiction, from sexy magical wedding stories to campy queer mystery. A word of caution: you may have to wait more than a few months for some but only a few days for others (and at least 3 are already out! YES!). So sit back and listen in as we chat about all the gorgeous new reads that we’re dying to get out hands on!
No time to listen but still want to stock up on great reads? Check out each blogger’s picks here:

It’s beginning to look a lot like…well, any old day? From the dearth of holiday preparations here at Binge on Books you would never guess that the holidays are right around the corner. Every year I hope to spruce the place up a bit with some fun holiday photos of a gorgeous something or other I popped out of the oven but that will never, ever happen. There’s a very important reason for this: you see…well…the long and short of it is, I am a rather impatient and diffident baker (which is probably why I prefer reading to cooking). While most everyone I know is home baking something warm and fragrant, I’m huddled next to the Christmas tree with my kindle praying for some kindly soul to take pity on me and shower my home with baked goods. Someone usually does but it requires quite a lot of coaxing and quite a lot of smiling and far more energy than I can muster on a good day. This year, however, no cajoling was required; the baked goods came to me. I seem to have been extra specially good because Elisabeth Lane of Cooking up Romance gifted me with cookies! Eight mouthwatering holiday cookies to be exact. When I saw them, I gasped. If you don’t know Elisabeth and her gorgeous blog, do take a moment to peruse her site. She reads books and then creates recipes complete with lovely photos of foods inspired from them.
I’m not sure what prompted this gesture of good will. Maybe she saw the results of my lackluster holiday baking attempts from last year:
Whatever the reason, today we have 8 cookies for you to drool over. And what’s even better? The whole Binge on Books team has jumped on this post to pair these glorious cookies with 8 of our favorite reads. It’s an epic Cookie-Book Pairing you will not want to miss (think Meals and Wine…only BETTER cause, well, there’s books!). Here’s a hint of what’s to come:
