For our FIFTIETH #Bookpisode, the Book Squad discusses "Luster," the debut novel by Raven Leilani. We talk about the Millennial and Gen Z hallmarks of the novel, the bizarre predicament Edie finds herself in, the issue of “likeability” in Black characters, and the overall writing and narration style. Next we catch up with what’s on the #BookSquadBlog: Bachelor recaps, movie and video game reviews, and a brand new YA Book Club entry. Join us on February 8th as we celebrate our 100th episode with a look back at our favorite books, movies, and moments from the podcast so far. Read along with us for our next #Bookpisode on "Transcendent Kingdom" by Yaa Gyasi on February 22nd. Don’t forget to rate, review and subscribe!
