Episode #14: "The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror" by Daniel Mallory Ortberg

So we'll be honest, this episode kinda got away from us and we ended up talking about ALL the stories. But they're so good! The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror by Daniel Mallory Ortberg is full of wondrous stories that take a dark (and relevant) spin on your favorite folklore and fairytales. It was a perfect read for Short Story Month! If you want to read along with us, our June pick is "Goodbye, Vitamin" by Rachel Khong. Find us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Litsy, Goodreads...


Episode #13: "Pond" by Claire-Louise Bennett

This book was a doozy! This book is about a woman who lives alone and we gotta say, it left us kinda stumped. Not to say that we didn't enjoy it but it's a little bit of a head-scratcher.
