Trish and Jess check in about books they got for Christmas, how their respective apartments are filling with books despite best efforts, and Jess's last ditch attempt to read a book a day for the rest of the year to reach her yearly goal. They then discuss Girl in Blue Coat by Monica Hesse, which made its way into the 30% of books Trish likes despite being a little unbelievable. They compare it to Girl in the Red Coat by Kate Hamer which loaded Jess with tension as she worried that mother and daughter characters would not be reunited. Trish and Jess end with Top 5 Most satisfying or uplifting dogs in literature as recommended by Jess's mom. Next month, special guest Leah with A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
