111: Bryn Greenwood's THE RECKLESS OATH WE MADE - Challenging, in the Best Way

Updated: Jul 22, 2020

In this Unabridged Book Club episode, we discuss Bryn Greenwood's The Reckless Oath We Made. We discuss our overall impressions, what worked and didn't for us in the novel, and some memorable quotations, before getting into our pairings, including Peter Heller’s The Painter, Tracey Garvis Grave’s The Girl He Used to Know, and Oyinkan Braithwaite’s My Sister, the Serial Killer. We also share our thoughts on whether this is a keeper for us and how much bookish love we each give it.
