Welcome to Champagne and Complain with Emily and Ruby, where once a week we pop a brand new bottle of champagne and discuss/complain about our latest reads. The episodes will be named after the book we are discussing, but don't worry if you haven't read the story yet! We will let you know at the beginning of each episode how much of the book we will be spoiling. Sometimes we cover titles we hate, sometimes our favorites, and sometimes we get so off topic we forget we were talking about a book. Ultimately we are here to have fun with readers and non-readers alike. Our hope is that we help you find some new books you might not have tried and/or fall in love with some you felt too intimated to open. So come join our tipsy book club; we would love to have you!
