By Baby Got Books

We're three best friends chatting about books, reliving our childhood, getting back to reading and getting drunk along the way. If you're looking for some high brow literary discussion... This may not be the place for you. However, if you like pop culture, nonsense, and chatting away with your friends then stick around, we've got you covered.

Did you ever dream of listening to a podcast episode in which three (debatably) tipsy girls set out to discuss the iconic movies of the early 2000s, but instead find themselves discussing anything from family to politics, and even the WEATHER? Well look no further because it's all right here in our latest episode! This week we're following on from the nostalgia of reading The Princess Diaries: Royal Wedding by exploring other movies from the same era. We're sorry if parts of it don't make sense, but we went on so many riveting tangents that we could not include it all!

4b) Evolution of the 'Sexy Vampire'
4b) Evolution of the 'Sexy Vampire'
On this week's episode we drank some drinks and got chatting about the powerful cultural impact of twilight... How it said 'Sexy vampire rights!' and teenage girls, and guys probably, and some total non teens alike, all agreed. To this day, vampires are more likely to be sexy than monstrous, and for that we may have to thank Stephanie Meyer.  Was twilight many a teen girls sexual awakening? Did it single handedly inspire every supernatural show that followed? Will the cast of twilight ever forget that they were in this 5 film long series?  Listen to this episode for our hot takes!  Feel free to contact us on: Instagram: @babygotbooks Twitter: @babygotbooks Email: contactbabygotbooks@gmail.com And let us know what you think of the podcast!  Intro music: 'Upbeat Party' by Scott Holmes licensed under Creative Commons and other licenses Quiz music: 'Electro Groove' by Joseph McDade

About 3 things I was absolutely positive... First, Twilight dominated my childhood. Second, there was no correct team because both boys were trash. Third, Renesme never was and never will be an appropriate name for a baby. Join us while we discuss our childhood obsessions with Twilight. Don't judge us. We know you had one too.

3a) SHE WAS THIRTEEN!
3a) SHE WAS THIRTEEN!
On this week's episode of 'books we vaguely remember' we are discussing Romeo and Juliet! One of shakespears most well known works, but easily arguably not his best by any measure of the phrase.  We complain about the storyline, talk about how much better twelfth night is as the art that inspired she's the man, and also bring up how shakespeare wasn't even all that original anyway... Kind of a dick! All that and more, with the screaming laughing you know and? Love? Enoying listening and tell a friend!  Feel free to contact us with YOUR got takes on: Instagram: @babygotbooks Twitter: @babygotbooks Email: contactbabygotbooks@gmail.com Intro music: 'Upbeat Party' by Scott Holmes licensed under Creative Commons and other licenses Quiz music: 'Electro Groove' by Joseph McDade
