Happy Friday, Savvy Readers! This weekend is a long weekend here in Canada and I can’t wait to sit outside and sink in to a really great book. (May we suggest Mhairi McFarlane‘s Who’s That Girl or this list of great reads?) But before we go do that, let’s catch up on all of our favourite book news of the week!
1. Hannah Hart from My Drunk Kitchen Reveals Her New Book Cover in Hilarious Video
Two years after My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going with Your Gut, our favourite drunk chef is back with a new book! Hannah Hart officially revealed the cover of her new memoir Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded in a hilarious new video this week and also taught us how to make a delicious chicken stir-fry (Pro tip: don’t overcook the chicken). Watch the video here!
2. Judy Blume Co-Founds Non-Profit Bookstore

Just when I thought I couldn’t love my childhood hero Judy Blume even more, I learned that she’s co-founded a non-profit bookstore called Books & Books @ The Studios of Key West. An “arts organization dedicated to enhancing and enriching the cultural life of the city,” The Studios of Key West and Books & Books are truly the perfect pair. BRB, adding this to my bucket list of bookstores to visit soon!
3. Start Reading Now: Erika Johansen’s The Fate of the Tearling
Are you eagerly awaiting The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen after devouring The Queen of the Tearling and The Invasion of the Tearling? I’m right there with you. Luckily, Entertainment Weekly shared an exclusive excerpt this week to tide us over before the novel officially releases in November. Click here to start reading!
4. Favourite photo of the week:
Sigh. There’s just nothing quite like a first kiss. Thanks HCC Frenzy for reminding me of this great quote from Julie Murphy‘s Dumplin’! Do you have a favourite romantic quote? The team at HCC Frenzy shared a few of theirs here.
