We made it to the end of the year! Not just us here at Queerly Recommended, but you did too! Good for you and good for us. To celebrate, Kris is releasing her latest book, Catch.
In this last episode of the year (also the 50th regular episode — can you even?), Tara and Kris deep dive into the importance of We’re Here (HBO Max), the different ways gingerbread houses can work into a romance, and their recent awesome bonus pod with chefs Catie Randazzo and J Chong from The Big Brunch. Happy Holidays, y’all!
From Kris: Under the Christmas Tree (2021)
This week, Kris checks out Under the Christmas Tree, Lifetime’s first movie centering a lesbian couple. It’s sweet. It’s gentle. It’s the story of one woman looking for a tree for her boss and finding it in another woman’s yard.
Of course, that’s not all she finds. It’s love. They find love in the yard. Both of them. The tree was a distraction.
From Tara: The Christmas Catch by Clare Lydon
Tara describes this book as Planes, Trains and Automobiles meets two lesbians who grew up around each other, one of whom had a massive childhood crush on the other. Clare Lydon specializes in lesbian romcoms and this one is a delight, where two women must travel to get to their Christmas plans by any means necessary…all the while falling in love along the way.
