Hey peeps,

This week on The Booket List, Kimmy and Brennan have a discussion about October’s read “Good As Gone” by Amy Gentry. If you haven’t read, and are planning to beware there are SPOILERS! However, don’t feel left out, read below or hit up thegeekwave.com for Brennan’s Spoiler Free Review. Over all we really enjoyed “Good As Gone” and would recommend it to anyone looking for a not so scary but still suspenseful read!  Also, we announced next months book, “Elantris” by Brandon Sanderson. Warning, it’s long. Kimmy did not realize this before hand. So, if 650 pages is almost too long for you too, stick with it! It’s going to be great! At least, we think so!

Till next week, peace out peeps!

The Booket List Episode 8: Halloween Reads!

Hey Everyone!

This week on The Booket List Kimmy and Brennan talk about their favorite Halloween time reads. Which are not horror, or thriller, or really anything remotely Halloween themed. Or so we thought, turns out Brennan really loves to read about Non-Fiction serial killer stuff. If you want to lose faith in humanity you can check out Deviant by Harold Schechter here. If you are more of the Young Adult cheesy alien fiction (that may or may not have some awful romance in it, since apparently all YA Romances suck…) you can check out The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout here.

I mean look at these book covers.

Now tell me, would you rather read a book with a creepy dude’s face on it? Or a book with half a girl’s face and an upside down dude in a hoodie?

Well, when I look at them side by side they look equally as weird. So we’ll leave it to genre preference. YA Paranormal Book, pick the upside down dude. Non-fiction retelling of Serial Killer, the creepy dude would be perfect for you.

 

If you have a book that you would recommend before ever touching our reads let us know in the comments on our Facebook post we would love to hear about it!

 

Till next week,

Kimmy & Brennan

The Booket List Episode 7: Comics, Manga, and More!

This week on The Booket List, Kimmy and Brennan have Jarom in the studio to talk about Comics, Manga, Fan Fiction, Poetry and more. To say the least, we get a little sidetracked and barely make it through talking about Comics and Manga! We just have so much to say about both topics. You can read over some of Brennan’s manga recommendations below, and you can read more about CTRL ALT DEL; Jarom’s favorite web comic here. so we’ll be sure to get back to Fan Fiction and Poetry in another episode., because a rushed five minutes was definitely not enough time to fully discuss these other topics!

Brennan’s Manga Recommendations:

Dimension W: “Coils” draw energy from other dimensions, giving limitless energy to humanity. However, they have… side effects, if not regulated strictly.  Our protagonist is a man who goes after illegal coils to seize or destroy them before the effects manifest.

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha—Kono Watashi no Mono Tonare, Yuusha yo Kotowaru: The hero confronts the Demon Queen, only to find they share the same goal—the ending of the decades-long war between demons and humanity. They form a pact to end the war without destroying the twin societies built around it.

ReLIFE: Kaizaki Arata can’t get a job. After he left his first company after only 3 months, nobody’s willing to give him a chance. That’s when the ReLIFE Research Institute gives him an offer—take a drug that returns his appearance to being 17 and retake a year of high school. If he can remedy the mistakes he made the first time around, the Institute promises him a job. But can Kaizaki overcome the demons of his past when confronted with the fears of the future?

 

We hope you enjoyed this week’s episode of The Booket List!

Till next week, peace out peeps!

 

The Booket List Episode 6: “Good As Gone” By Amy Gentry

This week on The Booket List, Kimmy introduces a new host to the show. Brennan!! We learn a bit about Brennan and all his reading interests.  After that we launch right into introducing October’s Book “Good As Gone” by Amy Gentry, If you would like to purchase it you can do that here. We are all excited, well most of us are. Kimmy has a distaste for anything remotely scary. You can read up on the blurb down below and head on over to our facebook page to tell us what you expectations are for October’s read!

Blurb for “Good As Gone” by Amy Gentry:

Thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night, witnessed only by her younger sister. Her family was shattered, but managed to stick together, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night: the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. The family is ecstatic—but Anna, Julie’s mother, has whispers of doubts.  She hates to face them. She cannot avoid them. When she is contacted by a former detective turned private eye, she begins a torturous search for the truth about the woman she desperately hopes is her daughter.

Propulsive and suspenseful, Good as Gone will appeal to fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, and keep readers guessing until the final pages.
