Episode 3: Book Matchmaking Successes and Misses

Today on Episode 3, Kyrie and Cori wrap up their initial book recommendations to each other. Cori reviews the last of Kyrie’s recommendations including: The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams and The Circle by Dave Eggers.

While Kyrie completes the final two of Cori’s recommendations for her, which include:The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society: A Novel by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer, and A Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin.

During this episode, Cori may have converted Kyrie to a green tea lover with her tea selection of Tazo Tea – Zen.

Join us next week as Kyrie and Cori start their genre exploration with short stories (which, as you can imagine, Kyrie is just so stoked about).

Kyrie’s suggestion is What it means when a man falls from the sky by Lesley Nneka Arimah and Cori picked What is not yours is not yours by Helen Oyeyemi

Other books mentioned in this episode included  The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde.

  1. To Cori, you should check out Last Chance to See, by Douglas Adams and Mark Carwardine. It’s different from Adams’s other books. You might like it better.

    I read the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, the print edition. I also found it confusing at first because there are so many people to get acquainted with. However, it was intriguing, a way to glimpse the lives of people, although fictitious, striving to survive under the Nazi occupation. I was unaware of the role of the Channel Islands in WWII. Now I want to know more. As it says in the book, one detail opens a door of curiosity that leads to more books (my paraphrase).
