Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Bookcast | Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Movie

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there are spoilers and foul language!

Our last bookcast! No, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hasn’t made us quit, but we are changing things up! We’re reformatting the bookcast so that every month there will be two episodes of the book club discussions (at 50% and 100% completion) which will liven discussions, and in between those two episodes, we’ll have a podcast chosen at random. Could be gaming, could be movies, could be social commentary, who knows what’ll be randomly selected!

So why did I say last bookcast? Because the Roadside Reads Bookcast will now be the Pages and Pause Screen Podcast! Since we’ll be including things other than books, it felt only fair to give it its own space and name. The podcast and everything related to all things geek will be up on our new sister site, PagesandPauseScreen.com, so be sure to bookmark the new website!

And now, onto the discussion on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the Movie! It gets pretty harsh (the discussion), but one great thing came out of it, The Rock as Mr. Darcy!

Next book, on the new website, will be A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas! Podcast will be up on March 22nd and we’ll be discussing the first 50% (up to Chapter 23, not including 23).

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there are spoilers and foul language!

Well, we thought it couldn’t get worse last week, but boy did we get proven wrong! Characters take a southward turn in the latest 25% of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Post-show is a bit of a cut and paste mess but we talk about how much fun the drunken movie podcast will be, more about the atrocities committed to Pride and Prejudice, as well as random chit chatting, so check that out on our patreon!

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there are spoilers and foul language!

Ahh, February! Month of Love and Friendship…. and ZOMBIES! We eat our hearts out literally this month with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and boy, it’s not looking good! Ally takes charge, Helga flips out, I am disappointed, and Tasha is simply done.

Things were grim enough that we had to cheer ourselves up in the post-show via buzzfeed quizzes! Fun times, so check that out on our patreon!

Next week, we’re reading up until Chapter 36, not including 36! So we’re ending right at Darcy’s letter to Elizabeth, so hopefully it gets good!

Interview with Christian A Brown

Bookcast | Interview with Christian A Brown

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there is foul language!

It’s technically still Wednesday so the podcast isn’t late this week! Hurrah! This week we have an absolutely amazing podcast! We were lucky enough to sit down with the author of Feast of Fates, Christian A Brown! We talked about his series, life, and a few serious issues as well, so definitely a must listen to! Also, Helga’s views on the Nordic countries are purely her own, so don’t send anyone else any hate mail! INTERVIEW IS FULL SPOILERS!!

Sorry for some of the audio issues during the podcast. We didn’t record as we normally do, which apparently also gave my pupper Frodo the license to squeak at inopportune times. Yikes!

New intro music!

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there is foul language!

Another week, another day late. So sorry about that guys! I just started classes again this week, so it’s been a bit of a juggle between full-time work, the podcast, and mental health issues. BUT WE FINALLY FINISHED FEAST OF FATES! AHHHH we had so much to say! Things exploded in the final quarter of the book, giving all of us more than we were hoping for, including an epilogue that killed us!

Check out this great web comic Hollow that is full of beautiful artwork! Hollow, a webcomic

Just a short post-show on Patreon tonight. We’ll likely be putting our patreon on temporary hiatus for a bit as we revamp our podcast format in general. Expect post-shows for the rest of the month however.

February’s book of the month is one sure to make you eat your heart out. We’ll be reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies  so pick up a copy and get ready to read with us!

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there is foul language!

Oopsie doodle! Technical difficulties have led to this week’s podcast being a day late! Sadly, it’s also a dollar short as the podcast was one of our shorter ones, coming in at just over half an hour. Mostly due to the fact that we all agreed with one another and the story is busy preparing the stage for the climax of the novel. We touch upon WHY Sorren is my favourite rotten son, Helga goes in on the term Mary Sue, Ally gets her happy ending, and Tasha wants to see someone get gutted.

No post-show today 🙁 Expect some news about our patreon in the next podcast!

Welcome to the Roadside Reads Bookcast!

Be warned, there is foul language!

We start getting to the meat of the book as characters go forth and mingle with one another and the world. Lulu has a frighteningly disturbing favorite character, Decon reads ahead, Helga hates a man, and Ally has a hopeful dream for her faves. Lots of fun talk this week!

Also, everyone a huge shout-out to author Christian A Brown for checking out the podcast last week and blogging about it. That was super cool and great to experience interaction with an author about a book the group is reading! Seriously, go check out his amazing response to last week’s show on his website!

Patreon sponsors! Enjoy this week’s mish-mash of a post-show as we respond to Christian A Brown’s blog, and talk a bit about what we hope will happen, as well as the sick ass dagger Morrigan and Caenith create! Next week for everyone following along, we’ll be reading up to section XVII The Long Nightmare NOT including that chapter.
