Betwixt the Books Nostalgia Junkie: “The Subtle Knife” by Philip Pullman

IT’S FINALLY HERE! I have to say, our opening video of this series–with The Golden Compass–was one of my favorite episodes to date. We’re back at it again with The Subtle Knife, and Casey and I are EVEN ANGRIER than the last time. Tune in to watch us battle Taylor for who has the right opinion over whether this series is boring or not. (It is.)

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 Nostalgia Junkie: “The Golden Compass” by Philip Pullman

A week late, but not for lack of great content! Tonight, we’re live streaming our first of three episodes in our latest Nostalgia Junkie special. This is where we take books that we all read as kids and re-read them as adults to see if they are better or worse than we remember. This time around, we have all three original Bibliomancers PLUS the wonderful Casey from The Drunk Librarian, who was with Michaela and I when we did the inaugural 10 part Nostalgia Junkie series on DJ McHale’s Pendragon books

This series will come out once a month for the rest of the summer! Next, we read book 2!

Weekly Wrap Up 6/12/16

HEY GUYS LOOK! A weekly wrap up! On … Tuesday. And only with Michaela’s face. I had a really good reason for this, I swear, and I’ll be talking about that next Monday. Anyways! It’s also like one of our shortest wrap ups to date so you can enjoy that.

#nostalgiajunkie Season 2 Announcement

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know that Bibliomancy for Beginners has been fighting over what book series we were going to do for the second season of Nostalgia Junkie: His Dark Materials or So You Want to be a Wizard. If you missed the first season, Nostalgia Junkie is a special series where we read books from our childhoods as adults, and last year we did the entire ten books of the Pendragon series by DJ MacHale.

We finally closed the poll for season 2, and here’s the announcement video!

Bibliomancy for Beginners Nostalgia Junkie: “The Soldiers of Halla” by DJ MacHale + Wrap Up

WE’VE DONE IT. WE’VE MADE IT. TEN BOOKS LATER AND HALLA’S FATE IS ABOUT TO BE DECIDED FOR GOOD.

Ahem. Let me be responsible for a second.

Welcome back all to this special Bibliomancy for Beginners series, Nostalgia Junkie! This ten part special goes book by book through one the favorite childhood series of Head Bibliomancer Michaela from The Pied Piper Calls. Us, with special guest Casey from The Drunk Librarian, have gone week by week through all ten books.

This week we’re talking about the tenth and final book, The Soldiers of Halla. I finally, finally, get to explode with all the rage that I’ve pent up since I finished this series as a kid, Casey talks one last time about Bobby-Jesus and Michaela tries valiantly to defend this series as the best of childhood things.

It’s been a while ride, and we thank you for being a part of it. While we don’t have any plans for a new series yet, be assured that we are talking about it! For now, though, one last time – HOBEY HO!
