I have way, way too many feelings about this book. Some of them are SO good. Some of them are … not as good. Overall, this book exceeded my expectations but it also did something that drove me SO crazy I had to add a spoiler bit to the end. Don’t worry, you’ll be warned when that happens!
Wherein Michaela and Gretchen discuss some of the changes in the book industry at large and how they may effect the rest of us here in the book community.

So, this content is a BIT out of place for me, but I don’t care. I can’t stop gushing about Season 4 of Lucifer. I was worried about what Netflix was going to do to this awesome show, but I shouldn’t have feared. I have lots of thoughts and feelings, so let’s get to it!
I just finished listening to The Doubt Factory by Paulo Bacigalupi and BOY do I have thoughts. I was love-love-loving the audiobook … until I tried to finish it reading the book itself and oh boy. Then I started realizing some serious flaws. How did I miss them? Let’s discuss.
Wherein, we chat for half an hour about the wrap up of the own voices cycle in Bibliomancy and just general discussions going on in the publishing community about representation.
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.
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!
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.
There is also an issue with my audio. Sorry! I’m trying to figure out why it is happening but I’m technologically illiterate.
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!
