Better Than The Movie

...because the book normally is!

Better Than The Movie is a podcast for people who love reading diversely, books, book news, and issues related to literacy and popular culture. Our goal is to review and discuss book themes with passion and an open mind. We want to encourage our readers to look beyond the best sellers lists and  discover new voices and stories. 

We are The Readers, the people who the publishing world should be catering to, but oftentimes  don't . We are smart. We are funny. We are sometimes a little snarky. And we always, ALWAYS, think that the book is better than the movie




Today's episode is long and jam packed with a whole buncha stuff! We begin with discussing our experiences with book clubs and why we can't ever seem to find one that catches. To help us understand how a successful book club works, we speak with Nakia, the founder of an awesome multi-city book club called BookTini. Nakia shares with us how she began her club as well as tips for maintaining a longstanding book club. 

Then we switch gears and talk about the main subject of the episode, books with themes of illicit romances. We talk about books from authors such as Kate Chopin, Zadie Smith, Liane Moriarty and more.

P.S.I hope the Lady Gaga is now stuck in your head too. :-p
