The Cinderella Complex meets post-concussion syndrome in this fun little book club nugget! Lauren has a head injury but was still let down by how not completely awful this book was. Do women really fear independence, or is capitalism just a trash system? We discuss.
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!
Lauren and Isaac venture into the world of dark young adult fiction with Dan Wells’ I Am Not a Serial Killer and they discuss the basis of morality, basically. It’s a real corker of an 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!
Lauren and Isaac are joined by special guest, comedian, and single lady Emily Townswick to discuss Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. This book is full of so much good advice for how to tame your local psychopath into being a decent partner. We also discuss some racially dicey terms Steve uses and make a lot of assumptions about his three marriages (allegedly).
