The Book Thief

It's 2019! What better way to celebrate the new year than to post a conversation we had back in November? Yes, we've been busy this winter and holiday season, but we're back with a discussion of Samara's all-time favorite book, Markus Zusak's modern classic The Book Thief. We hope to make it the first of a two-part series including the author's latest novel, Bridge of Clay. Come, read with us in 2019...

The Mortification of Fovea Munson

Summer is over. School has started and so now I, Samara, must trek up to school five days a week. Yippee. But for some, such as Fovea Munson Future Doctor of America (not that she wants to be a doctor) summer has just begun. Of course when your parents work at a cadaver lab, how normal can your summer be?

How You Ruined My Life

The end of our summer was HUGE: a trip to Ireland, a 13th birthday, and the start of a new school year. It’s only fitting that we explore How You Ruined My Life, a novel about rock bands, rodent love, peanut butter sandwiches, and the fiery rivalry between two very different cousins. We loved every page of it.

Amal Unbound

Our first micro-episode, in which Andy dadsplains the beautiful Amal Unbound to a very sleepy Samara, and the two hosts rediscover the importance of the Model UN. Listen for the discussion on indentured servitude and feudal Pakistan, or listen for the terrible pronunciations. You decide.
