Wherein we talk about how Amazon is changing the discourse we use to talk about ARCS and Review Copies, Goodreads changing their Giveaway Function, and YouTube changing the rules around partnership.

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!
Hey look at us! We’re back again, starting a round of nonfiction picks. The first is Michaela’s pick, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlyn Doughty. We all know how I feel about squeamish things, so this book was just so much fun.
Wherein Gretchen and Michaela discuss the current trend of booktubers discussing their fears and struggles when it comes to being on youtube.
In which I discuss plot convenience, Name of the Wind, struggles with reading and the double standards between nonfiction and fiction.
Don’t worry guys, I’m nowhere near off the SJM bandwagon. I’m just saying that I had some plot and character issues with this book, which isn’t normal. The review itself is spoiler free, but there IS a spoiler section that I give you plenty of warning about! I’m really looking to engage with you guys, so give me a shout in the comments.
We old m*hf*hers, we old.
