This time, we read Hangman's Curse (The Veritas Project Vol. 1) by Frank Peretti as requested by our Patron, BeastWithTheLeast! They said that, “It’s probably the laughably worst YA novel I’ve ever read (or that I haven’t blissfully forgotten about)." Join us on this Christian Scooby Doo escapade and learn about spider mating! Who needs evolution o…
 
A YouTube user told us to check out a book about the afterlife, but Signs from Pets in the Afterlife was in the search results just below the intended book and, well...we couldn’t resist. Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, today’s episode includes discussion or mention of pet death, grief, and mourning.…
 
In this week's Patron's Choice episode, Paris & Chris discover how little they know about the former soviet union and how their American cultural upbringing did not prepare them to appreciate books that are heavily steeped in U.S.S.R. culture. Our Patron Anna actually mailed us this book and requested that we do an episode on it. It’s pretty incred…
 
It's another episode of Terrible Antique Book Freaks! D & Ken from Antiques Freaks join us for the final Carnacki tale (for real this time - there are absolutely no more Carnacki stories written by Hodgson, so this is it!) We use Eye of Argon rules to read the entirety of The Hog, complete with backing music and sound effects by Chris. Have your Ca…
 
Way back in 2015, Twitter user @keylime3_14 suggested that we read Young God. After languishing in the recommendations pile for nearly 7 full years, we’re finally reading it! Paris and Chris have wildly different experiences with this book and today's discussion is more on the serious side. If you're looking for laughs, perhaps choose a different e…
 
For the first time on TBC, we had a Patron ask us to read their own work for the show. Boastgusters by Kye Byllesby is an intentionally absurd, bizarro satire steeped in internet/anime/video game subculture. It's a serialized novel with chapters released weekly each Thursday. You can find them on Wattpad or on Amazon.…
 
We're starting February off with a Double Feature! Today we tackle two pieces of book-like debris that Chris found in the bowels of an Amazon search, the criteria of which has been lost to time: Shannon’s Book of One Quote by Shannon Little Fastidious by Paul Richard Tasch
 
Paris’s fiancé was on Reddit one day and saw a picture of one of those cars that's covered in bumper stickers and flyers. He decided to zoom in on the bumper stickers and found many that mentioned "Soul Esprit". A few Google searches later and we knew we had to read one of Mr. Esprit's books for the show. Content Warnings: In addition to our usual …
 
Paris was on a walk in Minnesota last year and decided to look inside a Little Free Library on the road. Within it, she found Emblem: Unity, flipped it open to a random page, and knew the luck of Terriblo was with her that day. Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, this episode includes discussions around animal violence, pa…
 
A few months ago on a website far, far away... It is a dark time for the Terrible Book Club. Although 2021 is nearly over, Terriblo still pursues them through the far reaches of time and space. Evading the dreaded Christmas Cheer, our two intrepid readers - Paris and Chris - have hidden away in the icy enclave of New England. However, the evil lord…
 
It's another episode of Terrible Antique Book Freaks! D & Ken from Antiques Freaks join us once again to read another Carnacki tale. We use Eye of Argon rules to read the entirety of The House of the Laurels. Have your Carnacki bingo cards at the ready! Content Warnings: Our usual barnyard language, plus: animal death and sexual jokes…
 
Ken from Antiques Freaks joins Chris for a very special Gentleman's Club episode! No girls are allowed as Chris & Ken probe the depths of The Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette and Manual of Politeness: Being a Complete Guide for a Gentleman's Conduct in all his Relations Towards Society by Cecil B. Hartley published in 1875. If you miss Paris, be sure …
 
For this week's Patron's Choice episode, we read RALPH 124C 41+: A Romance of the Year 2660 by Hugo Gernsback for our Patron Patricia. A guy in 1911 had a lot of cool technological ideas but unfortunately decided to publish them within a silly, pulpy hero's journey. Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, this episode includes…
 
TBC listener Ann reached out to us on Twitter earlier this year about this series and we thought a dark take on a common fairytale might be good for this spooky time of year. So, on a dark, chilly eve, we stumbled into a castle full of Anne Rice's kinks. It, uh, did not go well. Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, this epi…
 
Another Patron's Choice rears its head! We read Power Mage by Hondo Jinx at the request of our patron Austin for this week's episode. He implored us to, "exorcise this demon ... I just need someone, anyone, to explain the scene where someone titfucks a corona bottle and then eats it.” If you like your women without consent or agency, have we got an…
 
Just in time for fall in New England, our Patron Martin requested that we read Rush Revere & the Brave Pilgrims by Rush Limbaugh. Martin asks that you donate what you can to an LGBTQIA+ organization near you in memory of Rush Limbaugh’s lifelong campaign of hate. Alternatively, participate in mutual aid in your area! If you're not sure where to don…
 
For this week's Patron's Choice episode, we read Last and First Idol by Gengen Kusano for our anonymous patron. We have not been this baffled since Episode 50's The Eclipse of Darkness: Unveiling the Unseen World, which was also an anonymous recommendation. We now live in fear of the next anonymous recommendation we receive. Still, we thank you, un…
 
It's another episode of Terrible Antique Book Freaks! D and Ken from Antiques Freaks board The Haunted Jarvee with us for an, uh, invigorating read at sea. We thought that we had completed all stories in the Carnacki the Ghost Finder collection, but alas - several more stories were found. We use Eye of Argon rules to read the entirety of The Haunte…
 
Come along with us to Terrible Book Beach! We took a look at the New York Times Bestsellers List earlier this summer and settled on Beach Read as both seasonally topical and likely to be terrible. We found some improvements over most romances we've read but no amount of realistic dialogue and safe sex could make us ignore the mountain of coincidenc…
 
We read Hidden Sins this week because we figured that there’s gotta’ be a catch to Stacey Abrams. She can’t be perfect, right? Her political career is intense and noteworthy, but surely her romance novels are terrible! If you aren't familiar with Ms. Abrams, she is a former Georgia state house rep and current voting rights activist largely credited…
 
Callirhoe is considered to be the earliest surviving written romance in Western history and it is said to have popularized a lot of the common tropes of the genre that now haunt us mercilessly. However, since neither of us know much about ancient Greek fiction, Dr. Jeremy Swist is here today as our Charon to guide us down this Stygian river of anci…
 
It's 2017. Mother's Day is coming up. You need to sell more fried chicken than ever before. You are graced with sudden divine inspiration: "What if...what if I hire a ghost writer to create a novella where Colonel Sanders is the sexy love interest and sell it with the buckets of chicken!?" Unbelievably, this is indeed the world we live in - Yum! Br…
 
Author Alex Donahue asked us to read his children's book about two young boys living on Prince Edward Island during the tail end of the Great Depression and the beginning of World War II. Alex hoped we'd be surprised by his book and, well, we certainly were in some ways. Leon & Chris has a lovely cover and a solid core story that handles serious to…
 
The inevitable has happened: we heeded the cries of friends and listeners and read a book from Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series. Special thanks to Twitter user @laughterbynight for hooking us up with a copy! Content Warnings: In addition to our usual barnyard language, today's episode contains discussion of blood, injury, death, stalking/abusive r…
