Book Cover of American Royals by Katharine McGee

Katharine McGee's American Royals

Discussed in: Episode 124

The Details: In this Unabridged Podcast book club episode, we discuss the readers' choice spring 2020 pick, Katharine McGee's American Royals. We pair it with other books we've loved, including Kevin Kwan's Crazy Rich Asians (which we discussed in a film adaptation episode here!), Kiera Cass’s The Selection series, and Melissa Bashardoust’s Girls Made of Snow and Glass. We ended the episode by sharing (confessing?) things that we love to do to relax.

Book Cover of Adult Conversation by Brandy Ferner

Brandy Ferner's Adult Conversation

Discussed in: Episode 127

The Details: In this Unabridged Podcast interview episode, we had a wonderful time discussing all things parenting and partners with Brandy Ferner. We read her novel Adult Conversation, which just released in May 2020, and we all felt that the depiction of motherhood with all of its dark humor and relentlessness resonated so much with our experiences.
