Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 4: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

This is hilariously late, but we actually are getting it done because we just said LET’S DO IT WHO’S READY TO GO and in the space of a half hour we got online. We’re really sorry about how delayed this summer has been, but we promise that it’s just because our lives are falling apart and not because of anything else. Anyways, this promises to be hilarious because we’ve half forgotten the book and I think the book is bad and Michaela and Taylor think it’s good!

The upcoming set of three books are books by authors we’ve already read or series that we’re continuing. If you remember a long time ago, we did an episode on Eugenides’ first book, The Virgin Suicides. Now we’re back for his second book!

Don’t miss our first three episodes of this season:

The Bone Gap by Laura Ruby * Invisible Fault Lines by Kristen-Paige Madonia * A Fierce and Sutble Poison by Samantha Mabry

From the Notebook: June 2016 Wrap Up

Hey guys! Back this week with my June wrap up, even though it’s a bit later than I wanted. I only read 5 books this month, and only 1 for my PopSugar challenge, BUT I’m 50% of the way there and on track for my 100 book overall Goodreads challenge goal!

Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 4 Episode 3: “A Fierce and Subtle Poison” by Samantha Mabry

ON BACK TO BACK NIGHTS, WE APPEAR! After the rousing success of yesterday’s opening episode of our Nostalgia Junkie season two, we’re back without regular season of Bibliomancy to bring you A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry. This is our final episode in our month of YA picks. If you missed one, the first two episodes were:

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby

Invisible Fault Lines by Kristen-Paige Madonia

Our next episode will begin our month of sequels, starting with Jeffrey Eugenides’ Middlesex. Join us in two weeks for that!

Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 4 Episode 2: Invisible Fault Lines by Kirsten-Paige Madonia

While this may be days late, it is no dollars short. Michaela is hellishly sick, Taylor is so apathetic he doesn’t even want to listen to himself speak and me? I just like to poke the bear. This may be our most dysfunctional episode to date. HOWEVER that means it’s good fun to watch and you should totally do so.

MONDAY we are starting our Nostalgia Junkie series with The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.

If you missed episode one of this season, check out our hangout on The Bone Gap by Laura Ruby.

Bibliomancy for Beginners Season 4 Episode 1: “Bone Gap” by Laura Ruby

Summer is officially HERE! The fourth season of Bibliomancy for Beginners is off to a great start! We filmed our first of six episodes last night on Bone Gap by Laura Ruby and … well. It was everything we could have hoped for and more! Taylor and I agreed! *gasp* Michaela went to the mat to defend the literary! Taylor blew my mind and then we talked about moose. Seriously. Watch it. This was a damn fine opener.

In TWO WEEKS we will be reading Invisible Fault Lines by Kristen-Paige Madonia. If you want to read along at some point this summer, please see our schedule announcement video for the list of books!
