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

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.

THE WEEKLY WRAP UPS THAT NEVER WERE!

Okay, these are still late. But you know what, these exist. We’re wrapping up the last two weeks in a weird, timey-wimey video that shows that we really did try to have these out on time. The editing just never happened because Michaela and I are struggling to find a new rhythm in our new post-grad lives. Please love us while we fix this kinks!

From the Notebook: Are Genres False Labels?

WHEE trying to do this without school is even harder somehow! Anyways, I actually got this video up in time. Unfortunately, it’s a bit out of focus. So sorry, but I literally didn’t have time to refilm it and that’s how the cookie crumbles. I’m about to leave for an academic conference, and ohmygosh. Anyways! This is a question for you guys as well as some thoughts, so start thinking with me!

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!

May 2016 Wrap Up

Instead of a From the Notebook video, you get a wrap up a few days early! Even early, May was a MUCH better reading month to me than April. I’ve gone from 10/40 in the PopSugar Reading Challenge to 15/40 AND I’m almost halfway there in my Goodreads goal of reading 100 books this year. Go me!
