Hi, Should-Heads! Today, Miracle Creek author Angie Kim comes back to discuss Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's our third book club book, and we absolutely loved it. There's a lot to ponder (what makes us human? can we ever be 100% known, even by ourselves?) and it would take multiple episodes to fully cover this book. Buy it, read it, listen to this episode and then find us on social media to discuss it. We'll definitely have even more to say. Links mentioned in this episode:Angie Kim's review of Klara and the Sun: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/54120408-klara-and-the-sun?ac=1&from_search=true&qid=wh61SUln3b&rank=1 Stephen King film festival: https://nerdist.com/article/stephen-king-film-festival-short-films-dollar-baby/ Tessa Thompson to adapt Secret Life of Church Ladies: https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2021/01/15/deesha-philyaw-secret-lives-of-church-ladies-adaptation-television-tessa-thompson-hbo-max/stories/202101150164 Currently Reading:      Julia: The Happiest Girl in the World (Alena Dillon) Kelly: Love & Other Crimes (Sara Paretsky) Rachael: Winterkeep (Kristin Cashore), Where the Light Enters (Sara Donati), The Beekeeper's Apprentice (Laurie R.

Hello, Should-Heads! Why do we love retellings so much? Why is it so fun and (honestly a little comforting) to read these tales as old as time? We ponder these questions, share our favorite ones and debate where the line is between "homage" and "fanfiction." Links from show: Dawn from Netflix's Babysitters Club has been recast. https://www.eonline.com/news/1250032/the-baby-sitters-club-announces-a-recast https://twitter.com/netflixqueue/status/1372599859530788865 for video Currently Reading:     Julia: Stepsister (Jennifer Donnelly) Kelly:  Girls With Razor Hearts (Suzanne Young)  Rachael: The Snow Child (Eowyn Ivey) and People Like Her (Ellery Lloyd) Recent Acquisitions: Kelly: Girls With Rebel Souls (Suzanne Young) and Lost in the Never Woods (Aiden Thomas)Rachael: Parable of the Sower (Octavia Butler)  Our recommendations: K.

Hi, Should-Heads! We're joined by Allison Dickson (the Steve Martin of our podcast!) and we're discussing "good for her!" books about women who are righting wrongs in various ways (some of those ways are violent).

Oh, Should-Heads! If you haven't read Temporary, you are doing yourself a real disservice. It's clever and funny, but don't take our word for it. It's also received excellent reviews from The New York Times, The Washington Post and made Best Of 2020 lists from NPR and Publisher's Weekly and many more outlets. As we approach the first anniversary of quarantine, this is a book that will be the best possible distraction. Thank you so much for author Hilary Leichter, who is well versed in the rule of threes, for joining us! (Also in this episode: we all bought a lot of books and learned we didn't know anything about the Dust Bowl.)Want to read some amazing books before most people can?

Happy Tuesday, Should-Heads! We're happy to share our second book club with you, and this book gave us a lot to talk about. (If you haven't read it, you need to.
