This Poison Birthday
In our most recent episode, Claire and I were joined by Superfan Constance for our discussion of This Poison Heart by Kalynn Bayron. Superfan Constance recommended it and even wrote the summary! Maybe if you become a Superfan someday, you'll get to join in on full episodes, too!
This book is AMAZING and I'm so happy that it's going to have a second part. It's seriously perfection. The characters are all so quippy and funny but powerfully badass at the same time. Briseis and her moms are what family dreams are made of. Bri has known for a while that she can control plants, but then she accidentally discovers that she's immune to poison, too! Soon after this terrifying discovery, Bri's moms learn that the rent on their flower shop is going up, but luckily, or unluckily?, there's a death in Bri's birth family and she inherits a huge house with its own apothecary. Seems like things are looking up, but is this new windfall too good to be true? YES, YES IT IS. Read the book, listen to our episode, or check out our summary for more details!
Here's a recording picture featuring us all wearing party hats to celebrate my birthday! I'm also wearing a mustache, Bird is hanging out with Claire and Constance is just cute. It's all perfectly reasonable.
