Episode 15: Must-Read Novels + Books that Surprised Us

Episode number 15. Does it seem to anyone else like it’s getting crazy real? We are having such fun! Tune in this week to hear Meredith and Kaytee discuss three books each as well as something that we read that surprised us!

You’ll hear a “bookish moment of the week” from each of us: a family road trip listen and a perfect reading moment.

Next, we tackle what we are currently reading, a smorgasbord of titles ranging from YA to fantasy to literary fiction to thrillers. We’ve got a bit of everything!

Our mini deep dive this week is about the books that most recently surprised us. And you might be surprised as well by one of these titles!

As always, we finish up with A Book (yep, capitalized) that we’d like to press into every reader’s hands: a sci-fi thriller and a classic children’s series.
