It’s a classic literary fiction novel that you’ve probably read at some point, but this month you can go back and reread with The Booket List. We’re all super excited to read it for the month of April! We talk a bit about the Literary Fiction genre, and share some stories of our exposure to the genre. Which let’s face it, all come from the good old high school days. Which for Brennan…. was last year. Freshman. Way to make us feel old right? What are you’re first impressions of Farewell to Arms?

Hey Everyone! We are so excited to be back on campus this week to start off our spring semester! Tune in to this week’s episode to hear about the different books all the hosts read over break, and hear the results of Kimmy and Brennan’s competition! We will be reading a book from the Halo franchise this month titled “Halo: Contact Harvest” by Joseph Staten. For those of you who are scrunching your nose at this because you’ve never played the games or don’t know the lore, we picked this particular novel because it starts at the beginning of one of the more well known arcs, so no one should be getting confused. Also another selling point, this novel is centered around Sargent Johnson who happens to be one of the most entertaining characters in the whole franchise.
We hope you’ll join us reading this month, you can purchase this months read here, and be sure to check back in throughout the month for more discussion.
Till next week, peace out peeps!

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.
