We swear we're going to get around to Needle in a Timestack at SOME point. Honestly. It's gonna happen. But until then, we've decided to round up our favorite summer reads of 2022 thus far and dish on all our favorite moments. Guess how many of them work their way back to Chris Evans? Far too many for it to just be a coincidence but we promise we did not plan it! Still, not the worst theme to work its way through the episode. Our List: Book Lovers by Emily HenrySet On You by Amy LeaFunny You Should Ask by Elissa SussmanHook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa BaileyThe Stand-In by Lily ChuThank You, Next by Andie J. ChristopherWicked Beauty by Katee Roberts We also briefly discuss the chaos that is The Boys season 3 without trying to spoil Jenny too badly and what's left on our TBRs to get us through the summer. Don't be surprised if we do another one of these episodes soon! Please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

HAPPY PRIDE LISTENERS!  Have you ever wondered what Pride & Prejudice would be like if it was set in an iconic gay village off of the South Shore of Long Island? Have you ever thought, "Hey what we need is a gorgeous three-part harmony arrangement of Sometimes by Britney Spears" or needed to know what Conrad Ricamora looked like doing the running man? FEAR NOT listeners! Because Joel Kim Booster, Bowen Yang and Andrew Ahn gave us everything we could have ever asked for with this gorgeous little film. Fire Island is heart wrenching, hilarious, and hopelessly romantic.  Daria even got to see the cast in person at the premiere in New York City while celebrating the start of Pride Month with NewFest. It is now firmly one of our favorite adaptations in Austenland and we spend nearly two hours gushing about how much we love it. Just warning you now! Plus, we briefly discuss all things television with Ozark, Stranger Things, Ted Lasso, and The Boys before we pivot to Jenny's VERY exciting pop-up for Happily Ever After Books this weekend at Word on the Street!  PS.

Can you believe some companies think we should return to the office?? After all this time?? While Jenny and Daria gear up for whatever this so-called "return to normal" is at their respective day jobs, we'll be replaying one of our favorite new rom coms for your listening pleasure. This is The Lost City! Please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

What makes a rom com? A good balance of comedy and romance, of course. Duh?? But what if you watch an incredible movie that calls itself a rom com but is light on one of the two?? What if by the end of the movie you're yelling at the TV like you're six years old and you're smashing two Barbie dolls together to kiss?  Well, Jenny and Daria get into it on I Want You Back - a totally delightful comedy that's a little too light on the romance. We're also both stuck on a few new things this week - Jenny is all about Harry Style's new album Harry's House while Daria can't stop quoting Jinkx Monsoon's stunning Judy Garland during RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 7.  Plus- have you been watching The Circle?  Please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

We truly cannot believe we have reached the end of the final season of The Last Kingdom! What an amazing ride it has been to watch Uhtred, the gangly kid from Bebbanburg grow and eventually end up back where he truly belongs! The final push of these three episodes (8,9,10) are really all about getting back to Bebbanburg and there are some harrowing moments, some old friends whose faces we've missed, some fan service in the final hours. As we came to a close on the final episode, we really couldn't be happier with how it ended. Of course we'd always love to see more of the quiet moments between characters, but this gave us the satisfying end we've all wanted for Uhtred since back in Season 1, Episode 1.  We also talk about Marvel's latest endeavor with the release of the She-Hulk trailer, as well as the BIG NEWS that Season 3 of Bridgerton has officially been announced as Colin and Penelope's season - we talk about what we're hoping happens and what might happen for future seasons.

This podcast episode is heavy, folks. Epsiode 5, 6 and 7 of The Last Kingdom Season 5 are not kind to our favorite characters! Each episode has truly traumatic death and our babe Uhtred is dealing with A LOT. We've also got Aelswith and Eadith cavorting around the countryside like the world's oddest couple. And Aethelhelm is still the best worst baddie of all time on this show.  We also talk about the horrendous ending to Killing Eve, Daria's love for Sam Raimi's new Dr. Strange movie, how Halo is actually a pretty good show, and THAT CLIP that's on the internet of Jesse Williams (we don't condone it and we think whoever filmed it should get in trouble) but also O_O. We contain multitudes.... No book of the week this week, Jenny is exhausted getting the bookstore ready to open tomorrow (Friday May 13th!) and Daria has been writing up a storm! But next week, hopefully, we will be back with a new book rec!!! Please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

We have finally arrived at the show that brought Daria and Jenny together! We are so excited to be recapping Season 5 of The Last Kingdom. We really love this show, and that's probably going to be quite evident to you once you actually listen to this episode. Sorry not sorry. The first four episodes start off with a gentle reminder of all the characters and by the time we get to the end of episode four we're distraught and we still have six episodes to go!! It was so great seeing all our faves - Uhtred, Finan, Sihtric, Osferth, Eadith. As well as some new faces that add some truly great moments to the first four episodes!  We also get mean about celebrities and discuss in length how everyone who attended this year's Met Gala failed to understand the theme (though maybe not quite as badly as the Kardashians misunderstood it), that Jenny is starting a romance bookstore, and how excited we are for our upcoming schedule!  Please Subscribe/Rate/Review!

We've continued on with our accidental Sandra Bullock marathon after seeing The Lost City on our girls trip last weekend. A silly, punchy action rom-com that plays off of Sandra's incredible chemistry with Channing Tatum and introduces us to yet another unhinged villain turn by Daniel Radcliffe. We really loved this movie- it was laugh out loud funny and had us swooning at all the right moments.  An ode to films like Romancing the Stone and showcasing a deep respect for the romance genre, The Lost City was everything we wanted it to be.  We also talk about a surprising bit of news about our favorite Uhtred, Alexander Dreymon, and announce that YES! the Last Kingdom Season 5 is definitely coming next week.

So while we're working on some fresh new content, please listen to us ramble on about everything we love about this witchy, 90s gorgeous romance.   We also wanna link out to Alanna Bennett's incredible 20th anniversary post about the film.

Ahhh is it over already?? We would have enjoyed at least two more episodes along with Episode 7 and 8 but we got so many great scenes, along with some real rage inducing ones! Finally Kate and Anthony allow themselves to feel their feelings! But not before traumatizing us with the most beautiful goodbye dance of all time. There's also a lot of betrayals in these last two episodes in other side plots and while the season wraps up a beautiful story for Kate and Anthony it definitely left us wondering how any of these characters are going to be ready for Season 3???  This week's Book of the Week is Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean, which you can find here or here! It was Daria's first foray into reading Regency Romance! Felicity and Devil are such an amazing pair, and it was exactly what we needed to read after binging so much Bridgerton! Tally ho, listeners! Next week we head back in time to the 10th century when we begin our Season 5 recap of The Last Kingdom! As always, please Subscribe/Rate/Review!
