Episode 6 - Jurassic Park (Part 2)

We don't endorse dinosaurs eating children

What's that rumbling sound in the distance? Don't worry...it's just our discussion episode for Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton! We dig into the book. (See what we did there?) We leave no stone unturned--we talk about everything from the characters, to the campiness, to the compeys. And don't worry--we talk about Jurassic Park the movie, too. Oh! And Maria has a pretty strong reaction to Jurassic World that you don't want to miss! Hold onto your butts and be prepared for spoilers!

Pro tip: all the dino talk starts around the 10:00 mark, right after we share the biggest book news of the week.

A huge, brachiosaurus-sized thanks to our vicious, adorable dinosaur roarers who made the ending of this episode the best ever: Ben, Caroline, and Emilie!

The Misfit Book Club Begins August 4th!

We're a book club for people who suck at book clubs

Episode Notes

Look: every bookworm has been there. You want to join a book club, but they're all in the middle of the day and an hour across town. And when you do find one that works, it can get even worse. Either the people are strange, or the books are bad, or no one talks about the book at all!

That's where The Misfit Book Club Podcast comes in.

We're a book club for the rest of us. No more trying to schedule a book club around your busy life. Just read the book at your own pace, pop in some headphones, and you're good to go! And if you want to make some new friends, we're all over social media. You can find us here:

Twitter: @misfitbookclub Insta: @misfitbookclub Goodreads: Misfit Book Club Facebook: Misfit Book Club Podcast Email: misfitbookclubpodcast@gmail.com

Our goal is to build a fun, online community of opinionated, sassy bookworms who can share their love of reading with one another. So, let's get this party started!
