Podcast Notes for Episode 243

Hello bookish friends! Ok, do you all want to see the fun coloring books that we got for Mother’s Day? I know that’s why you’re here! If you want a super inappropriate coloring book (since you’re listening to a super inappropriate book podcast) here are the awesome gifts we received this weeked:

We all found out about the fact that there were 19 crimes that will get you to Australia (Magen was close) which is where the fabulous wine company name comes from. If you want to lose yourself down that rabbit hole, here is the company website (we poked fun at them, but we secretly love them)

19 Crimes Wine

We also talked about the amazing book groups we belong to on facebook, where we get TONS of book recommendations, based on the kind of books we enjoy. You should take a look for one that tickles your fancy!

Here is an example of a public group that Vonnie would love:

Facebook Historical Fiction Book Lovers Group

And here is the group Magen mentioned:

Bookaholic Cafe Facebook Group

Martha discovered an amazing small company a while back, and we keep talking about them on the podcast (because they are just that cool). They’re called Carpe Librum, and you can check them out here:

Carpe Librum

and here is the awesome t-shirt that Martha got from them:

Book Fairy t-shirt

We also talked books (duh), so here are the ones we reviewed this week!

Vonnie’s book: (be warned, you may cry)

Rachael’s book:

Keathe’s book:

Magen’s book:

Martha’s book:

And that’s a wrap! See you next week, bookish friends!

Podcast Notes for Episode 242

Hi again, bookish friends! We turned foodie this week, as we discussed the best and yummiest foods that we enjoy. Hope you weren’t hungry going into it! If you want to take a gander at Martha’s amazing looking ice cream sandwich, check out this food porn:

Our amazing RedBubble t-shirt that Martha just received can be found here (thought I’d try a direct link, since the website is, as we said, a tad fiddly.)

3 Book Girls tee

We talked about an awful lot of books that we didn’t even review this week, so if you’re interested, here are a few of them:

Camelot retelling of King Arthur, Lancelot, and Gweneviere (also seriously dirty):

Seriously dirty book series about a priest who kind of forsakes his vows a bit:

Of course, we also reveiwed some books:

Vonnie’s book

and if Vonnie’s book sounded like your cup of tea, here are the other books in the series (all can be read as stand alones)

Keathe’s book

Magen’s book

Martha’s book

For those of you (like me) who have never seen Vonnie’s ice cream scene from ‘The Sweetest Thing’, here is a link:
