316. Sarah and Amanda Talk Book Nesting and Re-Reading Series

Amanda and I catch up now that Amanda has moved into her new apartment – and unpacked probably a thousand books. Then we talk about Amanda’s current adventure re-reading a series she’s not enjoying, but continuing to read.

We discuss the ending of series we’ve started, why we tapped out, and why we sometimes keep reading despite our own preferences.

We ask important questions, such as:

What are your stopping points in a series as a reader?

What makes you stop reading a series – or keep reading it even though it’s not what you expected?

Do you like being surrounded by your books?

And of course, how is reading a series like eating candy corn?

Plus – a sneak preview of an upcoming episode we’re planning.

CW/TW: We discuss assault of characters in the series Amanda is reading at 21:05 for about 1 minute total.

First: the Twitter thread that started our conversation. 

Amanda’s and my discussion about television, Episode 308. Sarah and Amanda are Terrible at Watching TV (But We Talk About it Anyway). 

Our adoration for this fan casting by Thalestral of a Dragon Age: Inquisition movie knows no limits nor boundaries.

We also mentioned Library Thing and Sarah’s addiction to the Double Love Podcast, part of the Headstuff Podcast Network. 

And: extra joke!

We’ll We’ll We’ll.

The Heiress He’s Been Waiting For

This podcast is brought to you by The Heiress He’s Been Waiting For by Kaitlin O’Riley

Christopher Townsend, one of London’s most eligible bachelors, is in need of a wife – a very rich wife whose dowry can cover the crushing debt he inherited on his father’s death.

Pretty American heiress Sara Fleming would suit perfectly. She’s vivacious, outgoing, and he quite likes her a lot. She seems to enjoy his company as well! But the problem is, she thinks herself in love with some American gold digger she left behind in New York.

Can Christopher show Sara that the awareness that runs between them could easily fan into the flames of unforgettable passion?

First in a new series, The Heiress He’s Been Waiting For by Kaitlin O’Riley is now available wherever books are sold and at Kensington Books dot com.
