Hello readers, it's Tuesday again! That means a fresh episode of What Should I Read Next.
Today I’m happy to welcome Elise Blaha Cripe on to the show, who you may know as the creative professional behind the Get to Work Book planner, her podcast Elise Gets Crafty, her blog, and her beautiful instagram account @elisejoy. Most importantly, Elise is one of those people who can’t NOT talk about books—who loves to be reading, and loves to share what she reads. Today we talk about Elise’s love of big, thick books, the three places she gets her book recommendations, and how the true sign of a great book is if it makes Elise forget she owns a phone.
