    When I was You by Minka Kent | Episode 282

    When I was You by Minka Kent | Episode 282

    A thriller that is actually thrilling?! Say it isn't so! Minka Kent delivers a dream come true in When I Was You with early, middle, and late game twists, intelligence, and an unapologetic villain.

    We listened to the audiobook version of this novel and HOLY HELL were the narrators fantastic. Not only do you have the powerhouse that is Erin deWard, but you also have Will Damron giving us sociopathic realness. Those two together create an audioscape that sets Minka's written atmosphere ablaze. It's a phenomenal read that has us hooked from beginning to satisfying end.

    Since our community is made up of all different sorts of readers, let us know your experience with this novel, or if you are hoping to pick it up soon! We can't wait to hear your thoughts.

    All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban | Episode 280

    All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban | Episode 280

    We are starting to think that maybe the YA thriller genre isn't for us. Between all the inaccurate whiny teens, and the frustrating wrap-ups we just aren't thrilled with these thrillers.

    This week we tackled the audiobook for All Your Twisted Secrets by Diana Urban, narrated by Kate Rudd. While the narration was superior, we had major issues with the story and the way the characters...just...were. We break it all down for you and we want to know: Have you had a similar experience with some of the recent YA Thriller releases? Let us know in the comments and on our social medias!

    How the Young Adult genre has changed | Episode 279

    How the Young Adult genre has changed | Episode 279

    If we asked you to name a YA book, what's the first one that pops in your head?

    Is it The Outsiders? Is it Little Women (Brad hopes not)? Is it anything that was assigned reading in your school that you'd have been completely bored with?

    Those questions are what inspired us to dive into the history of the Young Adult genre, what YA means, and how the changes the genre has seen parallel the changes we see in our society.

    The Lowdown on Lockdown | Episode 277

    The Lowdown on Lockdown | Episode 277

    With Maryland under a stay-at-home order, we turned to a virtual medium to bring you our bookish opinions :P. Thanks, Zoom (not sponsored).

    Over the weekend we saw an article about a book called Lockdown by Peter May, a crime thriller about a pandemic that puts London in quarantine. Not so crazy of a plot, right? Well back when the book was originally written in 2005 it was dubbed unrealistic by Peter May's publisher and squashed. It wasn't until now that the book was officially released under a new publisher and Peter's hardwork and research brought to the public.

    After some research of our own on thrillers released in 2003-2006 we are now asking for the REAL reason why the og publisher rejected Lockdown. We are talking all about our theories, the other books in that decade, and...just generally talking with cocktails because we are starved for human interaction.

    Check out the original article: https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/04/us/peter-may-lockdown-coronavirus-book-trnd/index.html

I absolutely love this show!

I don’t read or listen to any book until I listen to Britney and Brad review it. I find their tastes to be exactly like mine. I think their commentary is hilarious. I find myself laughing and answering their rhetorical questions. I feel like I’m talking to long-time friends. You don’t need to read or listen to the books before you listen to their shows, but I promise they’ll make you want to read or listen to them! I also LOVEEEE their YouTube channel of the same name.
