What fans say about the podcast

I Laughed My Nips Off

"I've wanted to do something like this podcast for a long time, but after listening to the hosts and guests rip into The Crucible (and other books), I think that niche is pretty full. And filled by a really great show. Terrible Book Club is sort of like the conversation you have in your head when you read a bad book and wish you could throw those thoughts out into the world for others to hear. It's hilarious, unflinching in its criticism, and oddly rather informative. Kudos to these lovely folks for a lovely podcast."


A gem of a podcast for any book lover

"I've been listening to Terrible BookClub since way back in 2015 when it was on LibSyn, and I'm truly ashamed to only be reviewing it now, because it is so good. Paris and Chris dish up hilarious takes on truly awful-sounding books, from the obscure (Bridges of Maradonia, anyone?) to the inexplicably popular (never heard of Marked? Apparently it's the #2 vampire series, behind Twilight). The resulting banterful book club has often had me in stitches. (Seriously, listen to their recent mini-sode about healing crystals and try not to end up snickering on the bus. I dare you.) Anyone who loves talking about books, or just having a good laugh, should give this podcast a shot."
