Welcome to the
Down to Fangirl podcast show notes! I’m going to try a new format for podcast notes because I suck at getting them done on a weekly basis. That just ain’t gonna happen. So this way there will be 4-5 episodes gathered together with all the links you need to check out our favorite things!

Reading: I recommended
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell while Brianna enjoyed A Night Divided by Jennifer Nielsen. We also mentioned the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.
Listening to: Brianna is obsessed with the
new Bleachers album. I binged the Twilight movie episodes of the Yeah it’s That Bad podcast.

Twilight moves. Brianna is a little more refined and has been watching Halt and Catch Fire.
Episode 13, 9/5/17
Reading: We discussed our September Book Club selection,
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, which Brianna enjoyed so much she had already moved on to Pretties. I was in the middle of the Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee but was struggling to finish (and as of writing this still have not finished it).
Listening to: I was (and still am) listening to the
Watching: Brianna talked about the baseball drama Brockmire while I binged
Reign. And we finished up our season long discussion of Game of Thrones.

Episode 16, 9/28/17
Reading: I mostly enjoyed
Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir, though it did lead to a YA romantic tropes rant. Brianna had mixed but mostly good feelings about Dark Matter by Blake Crouch.

Veep, and went back to an old favorite, Sex and the City. We also discussed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
