Episode 29, The Spooky Supper Club Edition

Welcome to our latest supper club edition! Ravena and I are thrilled to be joined by Kristin of My Life as a Teacup. Kristin runs a fun, welcoming website where she writes about resources on blogging and writing; productivity; literacy in the modern world; and finding delight in the sometimes dreary world of adulthood. She also just so happens to run the NovelTea Book Club, a monthly book club for fans of literary fiction, young adult fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, and the classics!

The October NovelTea Book Club pick is The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Ravena and I read along and asked Kristin to join us and talk about this delightfully spooky pick!

Kick back, grab your favorite coffee or tea, and join Ravena, Kristin and me while we discuss The Graveyard Book and other books we've been reading this month.

Happy (early) Halloween!
