    The Girls by Emma Cline with Sarah's Mom Ginger

    The Girls by Emma Cline with Sarah's Mom Ginger

    This week we read The Girls by Emma Cline with special guest Sarah’s mom Ginger! This 2016 debut spent 3 months on the NYT bestseller list. It’s rumored to be part of a $2 million dollar book deal! It reads like poetry but it’s about a Manson-esque cult. So it must be good, right? Wrong.

    Gossip Girl: All I Want Is Everything by Cecily von Ziegesar

    Gossip Girl: All I Want Is Everything by Cecily von Ziegesar

    This week we read Gossip Girl: All I Want Is Everything by Cecily von Ziegesar. Released in 2003, this third book took the Gossip Girl series to the NYT bestseller list for children’s chapter books. Turned into a popular CW show in 2007, this book is “the perfect book for any teen who wants something more than normal realistic fiction.” So it must be good, right? Wrong.

    Gerald's Game by Stephen King

    Gerald's Game by Stephen King

    This week we read Gerald’s Game by Johnna’s favorite author, Stephen King. This 1992 #1 NYT bestseller spent 22 weeks on the list. In 2017 it was turned into a Netflix film after long being thought to be unfilmable. Plus, there’s more cannibalism! So it must be good, right? Wrong.

Lots of moaning about books

A bunch of women who don’t read, read bits of books they don’t understand and then complain about it.
