AE Monthly Book Club: We3

By some accounts, April is the cruelest month. With that in mind we’ve picked a doozy for you to while away the fourth month of the year as we patiently see what victories and defeats each day will bring us. Grant Morrison is often referred to as the god of comics from his mainstream works on Justice League, Batman, X-Men, Animal Man and Doom Patrol, as well as his more indie work with The Invisibles, The Filth, Flex Mentallo, Joe the Barbarian, and the masterpiece, We3. We3 is the book we’ve chosen for this month and here’s how the...

AE Monthly Book Club: Gerald’s Game

March is said to be a lucky month, but when it comes to fiction we find that a bit of bad luck is more compelling. And for this month’s book, the bad luck comes in spades. This time around, bad luck is nothing more than an escalation of outright terror. For March’s book, we’ve chosen Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game. A film adaptation directed by modern horror maestro Mike Flanagan is set to be released on Netflix later this year, so we thought we’d find out what we’re in store for ahead of time. The publisher’s description reads: Once again,...

AE Monthly Book Club: February 2017

Well, we survived January without the world being nuked into the sun so it’s time to see what’s on the agenda for February’s book club choice. For this month we will be mixing it up a bit and reading a graphic novel. Prince of Cats is a retelling of Romeo & Juliet from the point of view of Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin and the titular prince of cats. The action starts before the play and we get to see what happened in Tybalt’s life to make him the angry and violent young man of the original play. Also, the whole book...

AE Monthly Book Club: November 2016

Even though October has ended we couldn’t just let go of horror that easily. To unease you into the holiday spirit we’ve chosen a classic novel about a family that has a lot to be thankful for…until they don’t. For November we’ve chosen Shirley Jackson’s final novel, We Have Always Lived in a Castle, the story of the Blackwood family and the dark secrets they keep. The publisher’s description reads: Taking readers deep into a labyrinth of dark neurosis, We Have Always Lived in the Castle is perhaps the crowning achievement of Shirley Jackson’s brilliant career: a deliciously unsettling novel...

AE Monthly Book Club: October 2016

Happy October, fellow AE book nerds! As you’ve probably gathered, October is our favorite month of the year here at Audiences Everywhere. Halloween is approaching, and the air is turning crisp, which makes it the best month to cozy in with a good (preferably scary) book. For October, we have chosen the novel You by Caroline Kepnes, a story of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl at first sight, and boy proceeds to court girl in the most terrifying way. The publisher’s description reads: When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works,...

With Stranger Things off our screens for another year, where are you going to get your fix of 80’s genre fiction made in the 21st century? Well, as usual, Sean Fallon has your back.

The publisher’s description reads: Abby and Gretchen have been best friends since fourth grade. Through the years, they have bonded over E.T., roller-skating, and a shared love for pop music. But when they...
