We have 4 books this week because we have a special guest. Penny’s daughter Laura, who is a fan of the podcast, joins us and educates us about the benefit of garnish as snacks!
It’s 2020 and we start the year off with a bang. We talk about literal aliens, magic, science, heartbreak, and vampires. aka the whole damn spectrum! Gretchen starts us off with Strange Planet by Nathan W. Pyle and is drinking a Wild Blossom; Laura talks about Erin Morgenstern’s new book The Startless Sea and is drinking a dirty Martini; Penny gets nerdy reading the fascinating story of The Disappearing Spoon, described as “infectious tales of the periodic table” and is drinking a modified Toronto (she calls it The Montreal); and Michaela brings another installment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward with Where Winter Finds you: A Caldwell Christmas and is drinking a double rye manhattan. You won’t want to miss it!
