ICYMI, the next book we’re tackling is Jonathan W. White’s Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams during the Civil War. It’s gonna be historical and dream interpretation-y and intriguing as all get-out. Join us and read along!
Ever wonder why women are so afraid of independence? (LOL, women) Have you ever wondered what somebody writing in the early Reagan era would have to say about it? Well, you’re in luck! Next up we’ll be reading Colette Dowling’s 1981 best seller (apparently) The Cinderella Complex: Women’s Hidden Fear of Independence. Has Isaac already finished it? Maybe. Does Lauren refuse to talk about it if it doesn’t somehow involve Gus Gus? Also maybe. Hit up your local pile of trash books from the ’80s and read along and find out in our next episode!
You may be asking, What the H are we reading next? More murder? Yes, but also no. Why, we’ve decided on some dark juvenile fiction, Dan Wells’ I Am Not a Serial Killer. We watched the movie a while back and it was really good and surprising and definitely our cup of psychopath-flavored tea. Join us on our last read of 2019, it should be a pretty breezy one!
Guuuyyyyys, what are we reading next? Another dating/relationship book! So pleased we will be taking a look at mustachioed TV guy Steve Harvey’s masterpiece, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. It’s going to be full of gendered stereotypes, lady-blaming, and maybe one or two pieces of okay advice wrapped in garbage. We’ll also have some special guests helping to break it all down on our next episode. Look forward to it!
Friends, our next book has in fact been chosen, and true to form, it’s murder-related. We’ll be reading Jeffrey Melnick’s Creepy Crawling: Charles Manson and the Many Lives of America’s Most Infamous Family. Isaac’s been reading it and chuckling to himself over on the other couch, so it’s sure to be filled with delightful and strange nuggets of knowledge. Read along! Or go re-read Helter Skelter. Don’t watch that David Duchovny Manson show that we watched two episodes of and was very bad. Okay, good talk, team.
