Bodice Tipplers: Butterfly Swords by Jeannie Lin
Happy lunar new year! We rang in the Year of the Ox with Butterfly Swords, which was Jeannie Lin’s first book. It won the Golden Heart Award back in 2009 and started her illustrious career.
Ai Li is to be married to the powerful and hawt Li Tao, a scheming jiedushi. When she discovers his treachery and his murder of her brother she escapes to warn her father, the Tang Emperor. Except her father isn’t really all that fussed about it? She’s helped along the way by Ryam, Noted White Guy. They travel all around China meeting people and running away from people and hitting people with swords, which is delightful.
There’s really no content to be concerned about in this book (it’s a more recent book!) – if you dig action packed historical romances there won’t be anything in here that’s an unpleasant surprise.

The SSR Podcast: Episode 133: Then Again, Maybe I Won’t (with Jen Calonita)
Long ago, Judy Blume was established as one of the reigning queens of the SSR podcast.
On Episode 133, Alli and her guest take a look at a book that feels like a bit of a departure for our queen — Then Again, Maybe I Won’t, which was published in 1971. Unlike many of Blume’s coming of age stories, this one centers around a boy main character, thirteen-year-old Tony Miglione. Tune in to hear a discussion about the significance of this unique perspective on puberty, as well as conversations about mental health, wealth, sex ed, shoplifting, family, creepy spying behavior, Gossip Girl, and Grease.
