If you are looking for something to keep you warm during cold nights, Goodreads has compiled a list of the 45 sauciest tomes ever written. The list was topped by Lauren Blakely’s Mister O but it’s spread across three categories – BookTok, romance and romantasy – so there’s something for everyone…

In the US, an increasing number of books are being banned because they are considered controversial by conservative groups. So what did they do when a book about the book ban came out? Well, they banned it, of course…

We know Squizers love a good recipe, so it’s no surprise 2 Aussies had wins at the James Beard Foundation awards – aka the “food Oscars” in the US. Sydney chef/restaurateur Josh Niland’s book on fish butchery* and food writer Hetty Lui McKinnon’s veggie-focused cookbook* were both big winners.
