January Reading Wrap Up + PopSugar Reading Challenge Status

Thesis Thursday is taking a break this week because lol I’m not doing that work yet, I’m lazy as hell. Anyways. This post is as much for you as it is me, because I realized that while Michaela has been keeping track of her PopSugar reads while she’s been going along, I’ve been winging it.

Bibliomancy for Beginners Special: “The Magician King” by Lev Grossman

IT’S FINALLY HERE! As you guys may know, last year for our New Year’s Special, Bibliomancy for Beginners did a hangout for Lev Grossman’s The Magicians. Then, in our 2015 wrap up, Michaela and I both agreed that the hangout was one of our favorites of the year. All three of us thought that we had such a great discussion, and were so interested/annoyed/intrigued/confused by the series as a whole, that we unanimously decided to do ANOTHER January special on the follow up to The Magicians, The Magician King.

Now, I don’t want to give anything away, but I’ll give you a hint of what do expect: the emotions, issues, and feelings from that first video? They’ve increased EXPONENTIALLY in this one. Get ready for one hell of a ride as bibliomancy begins!
