    10 of the Best Books of 2020 | Episode 295

    10 of the Best Books of 2020 | Episode 295

    2020 was a good year....FOR BOOKS. There were so many wonderful releases and revisits that really helped us make it through. To be frank, there are a lot more books than 10 that really helped us, but we had to put boundaries up with ourselves! Let us know if any of the books on our list, also made it onto yours.

    Oh, and if it's not still clear....this is a book review channel for MAINLY audiobooks. Yes, we do also review physical books, but audiobooks are our first loves. We didn't think it needed to be stated because...well....what does it matter in the grand scheme of things? We're all reading!

    The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver | Episode 294

    The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver | Episode 294

    Wow.....WOWWWWWWW. We are pretty sure that there is a new record for the amount of tears cried while reading a book, and we are pretty sure WE are the record holders :P.

    There's no two ways about it, The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver is an emotional ride that you will probably cry during. "But Brad and Britney...I don't want to cry over a book, 2020 has been emotional enough" we get it, okay, and we say TOUGH. By closing yourself off to this book (and any book that makes you emotionally vulnerable), you close yourself off to a set of really wonderful characters, story, and getting in tune with yourself. Yes, there is a lot more to this book than just a contemporary, magically realistic story. There is absolutely no excuse for skipping this one.

    The Night Swim by Megan Goldin | Episode 293

    The Night Swim by Megan Goldin | Episode 293

    Thank you NetGalley for supplying us with a copy of the audiobook for The Night Swim!

    The Night Swim by Megan Goldin is a very, very heavy book. We feel like we would be doing a disservice if we didn't say that there are many trigger warnings for both the main story arc as well as the secondary arc. The novel does focus on a rape trial and also the rape and murder of another girl from the past. It's not a book to be entered into lightly, but it is a book that is very interesting given how the information is presented in three different ways: letters, a podcast, and third person POV.

    We differ on our shelf or shove meter for this one, which we fully explore! Let us know if you listened or read to The Night Swim by Megan Goldin and what you thought about it!

    Thank you to our Patrons!

    The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard | Episode 292

    The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard | Episode 292

    The Nothing Man by Catherine Ryan Howard is a book that gave a mixed bag of feelings. We differ on our opinions of the characters as well as the pacing, but agree the narrators did an AMAZING job with this one. John Keating made us hate him so much thanks to his portray of antagonist Jim, and Alana Kerr Collins kept us interested in Eve's journey for justice. While we are unsure how this book will fair on our overall 2020 ranking, we can confidently say that this is our #1 book on the list of books that have "Man" in the title....and that's saying something!

    We listened to the audiobook version of The Nothing Man via NetGalley! Thank you NetGalley and Blackstone Media for providing us with this book in exchange for an honest (but also confused) review XD.

    The Guest List by Lucy Foley | Episode 291

    The Guest List by Lucy Foley | Episode 291

    This is a wedding that no one will ever forget!

    In Lucy Foley's novel, The Guest List, there are dark secrets behind every smiling and congratulatory face, and on the night of Jules wedding to Will, someone winds up MURDEREDDDDD! We listened to the audiobook of this thriller and boy was it a treat! There is a full cast of narrators for every POV we are given and all of them are excellent. You'll for sure find the one you love, find the one you hate, and find the one that you hopes face plants into a wedding cake.

    While the story is fairly predictable, the journey that we are taken on is the real thrill in this novel! Let us know your thoughts on The Guest List in the comments below!

    Read It & Watch | Episode 290

    Lifetime may think that it's cool, but their book to movie adaptations are out of control. We recently listened to the novel Ten by Gretchen McNeil, narrated by Tavia Gilbert. Ten is a YA thriller/horror about a group of teens that go out to a secluded island for a weekend of partying. However things quickly go off the rails when one by one the teens are savagely murdered. Lifetime has entered the chat.

    In 2017 Lifetime released the movie adaptation of this novel, called Ten: Murder Island. It was basically word for word, scene for scene the same as the book. But when the acting is questionable and the pacing is smashed into an hour and a half...you run into some issues. We're talking all about those issues today in our duel review of both Ten the book and movie.

    Let us know if you enjoyed either the book or movie in the comments below, and please feel free to follow along with us on our various socials!

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.
