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



On today's show we discuss an article from the Washingtonian, featuring the "Queen of Erotica", Zane. Article can be found here:

We also have an interview with speculative fiction author, Daniel José Older--in which he shares his thoughts on world building, writing for a particular audience and how his recent marriage has affected his writing. The show wraps up with us talking about books that are on our To Be Read (TBR) lists, including works from Sonali Dev, Suzan Lori Parks, and more!
