Testimony From Your Perfect Girl

Jess, Maggie, and now Dan, all talk about Kaui Hart Hemmings' TESTIMONY FROM YOUR PERFECT GIRL. Listen and enjoy as we discuss blow jobs in the woods, body positivity, and how beating up your friends is the best way to make a point.

 

Annie Tripp has everything she needs--Italian sweaters, vintage chandelier earrings, and elite ice skating lessons--but all that changes when her father is accused of scamming hundreds of people out of their investments. Annie knows her dad wasn't at fault, but she and her brother are exiled to their estranged aunt and uncle's house in a run-down part of Breckenridge--until the trial blows over.

Life with her new family isn't quite up to Annie's usual standard of living, but surprisingly, pretending to be someone else offers a freedom she's never known. As Annie starts to make real friends for the first time, she realizes she has more in common with her aunt and uncle than she ever wanted to know. As the family's lies begin to crumble and truths demand consequences, Annie must decide which secrets need to see the light of day . . . and which are worth keeping.

A LITTLE SUMMER BREAK

HEY THERE BOOKNERDS!

We're going to be taking a little break for the summer (not too long). Just long enough to read some books, go to school, Graduate with an MFA (*cough cough* Maggie), and record some new interviews. 

If you're already a patron then you have access to the full interview with Kara Thomas and can look forward to having early access to our interviews with Linsey Miller and Helen Scheuerer (which won't publish publically until Fall).

We'll see you real soon!

Good night, our little night owls!

Reaper at the Gates

This week we discuss Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir!

The highly anticipated third book in Sabaa Tahir's New York Times bestselling EMBER QUARTET.

Beyond the Empire and within it, the threat of war looms ever larger.

The Blood Shrike, Helene Aquilla, is assailed on all sides. Emperor Marcus, haunted by his past, grows increasingly unstable, while the Commandant capitalizes on his madness to bolster her own power. As Helene searches for a way to hold back the approaching darkness, her sister's life and the lives of all those in the Empire hang in the balance.

Far to the east, Laia of Serra knows the fate of the world lies not in the machinations of the Martial court, but in stopping the Nightbringer. But while hunting for a way to bring him down, Laia faces unexpected threats from those she hoped would aid her, and is drawn into a battle she never thought she'd have to fight.

And in the land between the living and the dead, Elias Veturius has given up his freedom to serve as Soul Catcher. But in doing so, he has vowed himself to an ancient power that will stop at nothing to ensure Elias's devotion--even at the cost of his humanity.

Bruja Born

Three sisters. One spell. Countless dead.

Lula Mortiz feels like an outsider. Her sister's newfound Encantrix powers have wounded her in ways that Lula's bruja healing powers can't fix, and she longs for the comfort her family once brought her. Thank the Deos for Maks, her sweet, steady boyfriend who sees the beauty within her and brings light to her life.

Then a bus crash turns Lula's world upside down. Her classmates are all dead, including Maks. But Lula was born to heal, to fix. She can bring Maks back, even if it means seeking help from her sisters and defying Death herself. But magic that defies the laws of the deos is dangerous. Unpredictable. And when the dust settles, Maks isn't the only one who's been brought back...

Join us this week as we discuss Zoraida Cordova's Bruja Born, the sequel to Labyrinth Lost. Eat your heart out Lula Mortiz, we've got some opinions.
