Round One, Match Up One:
Anne Bogel's Don't Overthink It: Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life
Discussed in: Episode 116
The Details: In this episode, we had fun discussing Anne Bogel's Don't Overthink It: Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life and its application to our lives. Although we didn't go in depth about her other books, I'd Rather Be Reading and Reading People, we enjoyed reading and discussing those way back in episode 43.
Samira Ahmed's Internment
Discussed in: Episode 119
The Details: For our April 2020 Unabridged Book Club episode and discussion, we talk about Samira Ahmed's near-future YA literature novel, Internment (which was also our buddy read on Instagram in March!), and we make connections to other works including Mark Oshiro’s Anger Is a Gift, George Takei’s They Called Us Enemy, and Nic Stone’s Dear Martin. We end the episode by discussing some things that are helping us cope during this challenging time for our Give Me One.
Round One, Match Up Two:
Chanel Miller's Know My Name
Discussed in: Episode 141
The Details: In this September 2020 Unabridged Book Club episode, we discussed Chanel Miller's memoir Know My Name. We discuss the powerful impact of Chanel Miller's words and the way that she is changing the world through sharing her story. In our book pairings, we talked about Laurie Halse Anderson's SHOUT, Jon Krakauer’s Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town, and Jason Reynolds’s and Brendan Kiely’s All American Boys.
Farrah Rochon's The Boyfriend Project

The Details: We were thrilled to conduct our September 2020 interview with Farrah Rochon, the USA Today Bestselling author of more than 35 novels, including her latest release, The Boyfriend Project. The two-time RITA Award finalist is a native of South Louisiana. When she is not writing in her favorite coffee shop, Farrah spends most of her time reading, cooking, traveling the world, visiting Walt Disney World, and catching her favorite Broadway shows.
