On this week’s episode of Currently Reading, Kaytee and Meredith are discussing:

  • Bookish Moments: bookish laundry and thoughts on starting a book

  • Current Reads: a few Indie Press List titles that blew our socks off and some additional great books

  • Deep Dive: crotchety old ladies talk about their bookstagram pet peeves

  • Book Presses: a smart thriller and a great YA pick
