Katelyn Cole: Reading as Self-Care and Unpacking The Vanishing Half

It’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I have known Katelyn for over 10 years now. Even harder to believe that this girl reads over 10 books a month. In this week’s episode, Katelyn aka The Bookcase Beauty is walking us through establishing reading habits, how reading is a form of self-care, and how she’s been able to grow her “bookstagram” to over 36k followers by sharing her passion for reading with others.

Welcome to our virtual book club! In the second half of the episode, we are also taking a deep dive into the bestselling book, The Vanishing Half. A novel with deep roots centered around racism, classism, colorism, and identity. If you haven’t read this book, it is a must-read. We’re unpacking the book at every level and recapping some of the most impacting moments and characters.
