Guys! It's been way too long since we've had a Matthew McBride book to talk about, and so it's awesome that one finally dropped in our laps. We've been following some of the background of the development of this book for over four years, and it's great to see what McBride did with it. Spoiler, it turned out pretty awesome. Check out our Patreon for spoiler talk about this book and tons of others as well!
Hello everyone! You read that right, this is the first ever Booked. prom episode. What's that mean? Well, we talk about prom stuff, and we watched a prom movie, and we voted for a king and queen. One note - the audio is a little poor on this episode, we think due to the wrong mic being recorded on Robb's side. Sorry about that, but we hope you still enjoy it! If you're looking for the full experience, check out the Booked. facebook page for the full video! Next week we review End of the Ocean by Matthew McBride!
Okay nerds, we're back with our 14th book review of the year, which is our first ever review of Hilary Davidson! We had her on a Noir at the Bar episode reading from Blood Always Tells, and now we're here to give you the skinny on One Small Sacrifice. And as always, please hit up our Patreon for spoiler talk for this review, as well as many others.
They can't all be winners guys. Check out our review of the latest book by legendary author of the Hannibal series of books, which, sadly, didn't fare too well with us. After that, we chat about Livius going to France, the other books we've been reading, Chernobyl, gay rights, and more.
We're both back! This time around, we're reviewing Lawrence Block's first ever crime book, Sinner Man - which was recently re-released by Hard Case Crime. Check out our review, and see what Robb's been up to in his absence.
And as always, please head over to our Patreon page and throw us a little cash. Every little bit helps.
We're back with another review. This time, it's the much anticipated EL James book The Mister, the first outside of her Fifty Shades series as far as I'm aware. The weird thing about this particular review is that Robb is completely absent. That's right, for listeners, you may remember that Robb said the only way this book was going to be reviewed was if Livius found someone else to review it with him. Well he did. Now we have scientific proof of what the podcast is like without Robb. Good? Bad? I'll let you be the judge.
We're back with another review! This time, we're going back to the Golden well, with The Pandora Room. Our previous review of his work was the 2014 winter horror book Snowblind. If you're not already supporting us on our Patreon, you can sign up for as low as $1/month RIGHT HERE, and get access to spoiler talk to this episode, and dozens of others that we've already reviewed.
It's a book that we've raved about for the eight years that we've been doing the podcast, and it's only fitting that for our 250th book review milestone, we finally take on Apathy and Other Small Victories. Check it out!
Here's the fourth of five Bram Stoker nominees for the best novel in 2018. It's a creepy historical fiction horror book about the infamous Donner Party trip across the country in the mid nineteenth century. Check it out, and hear what's new with Josh Malerman that we barely missed hearing about in the previous episode. And stick around for some spoiler talk, posting right after this.
Get your fresh Malerman here! Hot off the literal presses, Inspection is the new book from Josh Malerman. Hear what that you've been waiting for.

In which, after almost eight years, we still find something new to do on the podcast. No it's not the first time we've reviewed a novelization, but it is the first episode dedicated to the topic. If that makes sense. Anyway, which one of you cock and balls wants to make twenty bucks?
Check it out! We're reviewing the SIXTH and final book in the Miriam Black series! It's by far the longest series of books that we have chosen to review on the podcast, and probably pushes Wendig up close to our most reviewed author. Stay tuned for spoiler talk coming immediately after this!
In which we finally get to talking about the French literary classic by Alexandre Dumas. You may want to fill up your glass, because this is a lengthy discussion. After our Musketeer discussion, we chat a little about things we're watching, and reveal that up next is the final book in a series that we've long adored. Check it out!
Check it out! While we buy ourselves some time to finish reading the weighty tome that is The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, we took some time to talk about some awards, some new television, and other random bookish things. Next episode is the Three Musketeers, and after that, there may be some Miriam Black sooner than you think.
Check it out. We finally got Les Edgerton to free up some of his busy schedule to talk with us about his recent memoir Adrenaline Junkie, as well as life in general. He's a great dude, wonderful storyteller, and a genuinely interesting man. You won't regret checking out this one.
It's our second review of 2019, and it's a mass-market effort from St Martin's Press. Check out what we thought of An Anonymous Girl.
