Hey everyone! On this week’s episode of The Booket List everyone is in studio, plus one guest! It’s also our first dive into April’s book of the Month, Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway! 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? Do you have any good Literary Fiction novels you want to recommend to us? Hit us up on Facebook!
Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s episode of The Booket List! We talk about the difference between romance as a plot device and a genre. Believe it or not, there are some “romance” novels that the men have read and enjoyed!
Hey Guys! Join us this week on The Booket List as we introduce our February read Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover! We read the blurb, Brennan and Chris give us their first impression and expectations. Kimmy talks about why she picked Maybe Someday in particular and what makes it so special to her. Want to read Maybe Someday along with us? You can purchase it at your local bookstore or on Amazon.
Hey Everyone! Welcome to the 17th episode of The Booket List! This week we are talking all about to sequel or not to sequel? Brennan and Kimmy both agree that both stand alones and series can be great, but in what genres is the real question!
Join us in the conversation over at our Facebook page!
What’s up Peeps? This week on The Booket List your host have a discussion about Novembers Read “Elantris” by Brandon Sanderson. Over all everyone on The Booket List enjoyed it very much. Chris believes it was “Quite good. Really quite good. Quality.” and that is a direct quote. Kimmy thought that it was long, but entertaining and that the ending was annoyingly neat. Brennan just enjoyed it all.
If you haven’t finished the book yet beware of SPOILERS; we advise not listening to this podcast until you have. But, you will be able to find Chris’ non-spoiler review over at Thegeekwave.com.
Be sure to head over to our Facebook page to discuss your opinion of Elantris!
This week on The Booket List, our three hosts talk all about what they are reading. Brennan is keeping up with his fan-fictions, and reading Elantris. Chris is reading his norm, lots of Tolkien. Kimmy? She’s reading the bane of the boys existence, Young Adult novels. What are you reading this month? Find our episode post on Facebook, and let us know!
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!
Let us know what your opinion of October’s Read was over on our facebook!
Till next week, peace out peeps!
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
