Wherein Michaela and I review the wonderful retelling of Poe’s Fall of the House of Usher by T. Kingfisher and surprisingly I liked a horror book??
We finally read another book for book club! I absolutely thought I was going to hate it, but I am actually amazed by this reading experience. Michaela has also seen the movie, so there is a brief discussion of that as well as my continued “I cannot believe how much I liked this book.”
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!
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!
I’M BACK! Okay, yes, I’ve been back for a few days but now I’m back IN THE VIDEOS. My blog might not have been nearly as impressive as Michaela’s this week–like, by a long shot–but I’m strong in the end of the week AND we finally taped our Imbibliomancy video! Even better, Michaela and I did a lot of reading and there is a great selection of interesting books for us to share with you!
- Gretchen’s review of The Blooming Goddess trilogy by Tellulah Darling
- Michaela’s What it’s Like Working in a Library!
THAT’S RIGHT, THE FIRST GRAPHIC NOVEL WE’VE EVER DONE.
It promises to be FANTASTIC. One, because it’s Taylor’s pick which means I make it my mission to trash him. Two, because the fabulous Casey from The Drunk Librarian (and also our Nostalgia Junkie: Pendragon series and our 13 Days of Misfortune series) will be joining us!
Make sure you join us too!
