Episode 3 of our 6th season and last of our #ownvoices cycle is this strange coming of age lesbian novel with hardcore things to say about poverty and family as well. We did not expect the twists. It was good! We think…

Bibliomancy for Beginners s.6 e.2: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
For episode two of this new season, we’re keeping the OwnVoices theme with this one! I’ve wanted to read this since the second it came out, but grad school is hard guys. I figured it fit the theme perfectly and this way I’d make everyone read it! Great idea, past me.
Bibliomancy for Beginners s.6 e.1: Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
It’s a new season of Bibliomancy for Beginners, and we’re starting with an arc of #ownvoices titles. This one is ownvoices for an asexual main character, and also sounded really interesting in plot. After reading it, one of those things is still true!
Bibliomancy for Beginners S6 Ep2: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
We’re in the middle of a free choice cycle, and for my pick I chose The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas–just in time for the beautiful collector’s edition that just came out. While none of us do have that beauty, we do have thoughts and feelings about this spectacular novel so check in and chat with us live at 9:30AM 2/27 or after the livestream at any time!
Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 5 Episode 1: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
We old m*hf*hers, we old.
This is the first of our REAL ADULT BOOK CLUB. We used to say we were college friends, well folks… we are no longer students. We are now adult humans, with adult things, READING BOOKS ABOUT TEEN WITCHES, HELL YEAH.
Bibliomancy for Beginners – Spooksgiving: Let Me In by John Ajvide Lindqvist
So remember when we said we were going to do a Halloween special? Well. It took us until about, oh, Black Friday to actually get this done. It’s always time for weird vampire sort-of-horror, right? Listen. I’m out of excuses, okay? Life is hard, but we love books. This really wasn’t my favorite, even if Michaela and Taylor liked it. HOWEVER, this is a really awesome episode because this book may not have been that good (to me) but it stimulated A LOT of really awesome discussion of themes and characters. We got so into it we almost forgot to stop. It was worth the wait!
Autumn Reading Tag | Betwixt the Books
LOOK. MICHAELA AND I MADE A VIDEO TOGETHER! We were tagged by the lovely Amanda Center to do this tag, literally at the moment when Michaela and I were searching for something to do as our first #bibliomansion video. Clearly, Amanda is tuned in to our thoughts. Check out this video for some great horror recommendations as well as a sneak peek into some upcoming Betwixt the Books and Bibliomancy for Beginners plans!
Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 4 Episode 6: The 13th and 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear by Walter Moers
FINALLY. This is really happening. We swear. This is the final episode of the regularly scheduled (haha) season 4 of Bibliomancy for Beginners. (Sort of.) Now that school is over and our lives are different, we’re going to be trying to strike up a new rhythm. For now, however, you can watch this episode which will be a lot of me yelling at Taylor for making us read this intelligent monstrosity of a waste of my time. 😛
Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 4: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Hey there guys! We’re back with another one of our follow up themed episodes for season 4. This is a follow up on our Imbibliomancy episode on Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which we all liked. I was hopeful we would all like this but, as usual, there are some split opinions. MOSTLY FROM TAYLOR BECAUSE HE HAS NO TASTE. Anyways. Here we go!
Betwixt the Books Nostalgia Junkie: “The Subtle Knife” by Philip Pullman
IT’S FINALLY HERE! I have to say, our opening video of this series–with The Golden Compass–was one of my favorite episodes to date. We’re back at it again with The Subtle Knife, and Casey and I are EVEN ANGRIER than the last time. Tune in to watch us battle Taylor for who has the right opinion over whether this series is boring or not. (It is.)
