All the Books Show: Episode 228 – 2020 Page to Screen Adaptations

On this episode of the All the Books Show, we check out the page to screen adaptations coming in 2020!

I gotta say, so far, with only what we know now, it looks like a week year. Nic keeps asking me if I’m exciting and, aside from worrying he’s losing his memory at an exponential rate, I keep telling him there’s nothing I’m really jumping up and down to see. Wonder Woman 1984 is it, but I’ve been tricked by awesome trailers before (heres looking at you Godzilla: King of Monsters).

All the Books Show: Episode 224 – Goodreads Choice Awards 2019

Oh, hey, it’s the Goodreads Choice Awards! Getting less important every year!

I like a good book award. More than something like the Oscars. But, this award is outliving it’s usefulness. Look, if you voted for The Institute by Stephen King as best horror, you were wrong and wrong to do so. Outside of that book being one of my least favorite reads in a while, it’s in no way horror. Scifi-lite, but not horor.

These awards are really starting to feel like, “Oh, I know that name, sure, I’ll vote…CLICK!” and that means I have less and less time for them each year.

Anyway, we talk the winners.

All the Books Show: Episode 223 – Favorite Books of the Decade

It’s already been a decade? Wait, from when? Why don’t we do this every year? Anniversary things like this are dumb, why do we do them? Who cares how old The Matrix is. Ramble, ramble, ramble…

The point is, we talk about our favorite books of the decade. Not the most important books and all that. Literally the books we liked from the decade. Which means your favorite books didn’t make it! Maybe next decade!

Decade. That would be a cool name, right? “Hello, my name is Officer Jacobs and this is my partner, Decade. He’s the best there is at Robocide cases like this and we’re going to find out who deleted your husband.”

All the Books Show: Episode 129 – All the Books Anticipation 2018!

This episode, we talk about the adult books coming out in 2018. But, we still have the excitement of young readers. You got to feel young to stay young, you know?

Lots of books coming out this year, but not a lot catching me eye. On the podcast, I point out that I’m never very up-to-date on books released during the year. Sometimes, if something really grabs my attention, like The Girls or Exit West, I’ll give in. But, it’s rare.

Anything you’re looking forward to? Let me know, and maybe you convince me to be excited too!

All the Books Show: Episode 128 – YA Book Anticipation 2018!

2018 is a new year with new possibilities! Like books!

Normally, Nic and I will do one episode covering the most anticipated books of the year. This year, however, there seemed to be too many to cover in just one episode. So, we split it up and here’s our look at the young adult books coming to shelves this year.

My most anticipated is the YA Jurassic World prequel novel about Claire and her rebuilding the park. That’s the only book I want to read this year.

All the Books Show: Episode 127 – Edgar Awards 2018

Second catch up post! It’s about mysteries!

Speaking of mysteries, someone on Twitter refered to me as a clever clogs. Apparenly, it’s an “UK informal disapproving someone who shows that they are clever, in a way that annoys other people.” What that has to do with mysteries, or the Edgar Awards, which are given to mysteries, I don’t know. Why’d you bring it up?

All the Books Show: Episode 126 – Page to Screen 2018

Catch up post!

I like books. I like movies. I want to read some of these books. I want to see some of these movies. I really only want to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. That kind of fits into this category. I’m gonna say it does.

All the Books Show: Episode 125 – Book Clubbing

Second quick update as I try to get current with the episodes on the blog.

We talk about book clubs, the benefits and such. What books the library has on the schedule and what have been favorite reads in past clubs. Mine, personally, is Station Eleven. I was worried I wasn’t going to want to talk about that book, because I loved it and I didn’t want to hear any critiques. Luckily, the club was a great discussion and I think I like the book even more having done it. Join a book club!

All the Books Show: Episode 124 – Last of the Year

Quick catch up post!

In which we really talk about the end of the year and books we read in 2017. Goodreads helps us see the longest books we tackled, the books we most enjoyed, disliked and if we’re ready to get reading in 2018!

All the Books Show: Episode 123 – Best of 2017

Again, quick posting because I got behind with these postings.

We talk the end of year! 2017 is done! It’s over! Let’s hold hands and just get through 2018! But, first, a look back! We look at the best selling books of 2017! Did you read any of them? I’m never up-to-date on the current books, my reading list is too long!
