Episode Info:

This week we read The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman with our special guest, Emily Fidago (McSweeney’s)! This 1992 book is still on the NYT bestseller list for advice books! It’s sold more than 12 million copies and been printed in 50 languages. So it must be good, right? Wrong.

Mean Book Club is four ladies (UCB, BuzzFeed, College Humor, Impractical Jokers) who read, discuss and whine about NYT bestselling books that have questionable literary merit. It's fun. It's cathartic. It's perfect for your commute. New podcast (almost) every Tuesday!

Here’s the book list for Season 8:

- [ ] Neon Prey by John Sandford
- [ ] Gerald’s Game by Stephen King
- [ ] Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar
- [ ] The Girls by Emma Cline
- [ ] The TB12 Method by Tom Brady
