Episode 024 - Other Stuff We Read

By Book Club for Masochists

This episode we tackle the genre of...wait? What do you mean there’s no genre? We have to read things that aren’t for the book club?! I guess somehow we have time to consume other media outside of our book club picks! If you’re curious about what we read/listen/watch/play when we’re not way outside of our comfort zone, then listen along for a run down of what we’ve been into since the beginning of the 2017. We talk superhot sidekick guys in mystery tv shows, sharing the same haircut with friends, planes, trains, and automobiles, too much snow in Canada (or at least in Vancouver), and Jessi getting scared by her cat. In this episode Anna Ferri | Meghan Whyte | Matthew Murray | Jessi Bernáldez Frostrup Books In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri (recommended) The Blue Castle  by L.M. Montgomery The Long Cosmos by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter The complete Long Earth series (at least the first couple are recommended for Discworld fans) Apartment Therapy: Complete and Happy Home by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, Janel Laban (recommended) A Life Less Ordinary: Interiors and Insights, Love and Life by Alex Legendre, Zoe Ellison Home for Now: Making Your Rented Space or First House Beautiful by Joanna Thornhill Apartment Therapy’s Big Book of Small Cool Spaces by Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan Comics/Graphic Novels Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, Brooke A.
