10. Booked on...Cobi's Adventure
It's Choose Your Own Adventure week here at #BOAFcast and we thought we'd treat our awesome listeners to some original Adventures written by Cory & Cobi themselves! Or maybe it's a trick! You'll have to listen to find out. And if you're still on the fence, just remember that the Illuminati is watching. . . P.S. Keanu Reeves is a national treasure and and if you want to hear Cory tell Cobi this on at least three occasions then you're welcome and he's not sorry.

9. Booked on...Greek Myths
DID YOU KNOW that "Hold my beer." was originally coined by the Greek gods in their attempts to out-bet one another? Crazy, huh? Also did you know that 'God' spelled backwards is 'doG'? We bet that little kibble bit blew your mind. Dang! Look at us, makin' bets just like those no good Greek deities. Shame. In this episode of Booked on a Feeling Cory & Cobi uncover the illicit gambling ring the Grecians have been bow(wow)ing to for all these years as we review books rooted in Greek mythology. And we apologize for Cobi's inane attempt to pronounce people's names. It all might as well be dog speak for the good it did us! Heaps of praise must be bestowed upon the authors we featured. Their works simply leapt from the pages and know no bounds. . .human or otherwise! https://www.amazon.com/Fifteen-Dogs-Andr%C3%A9-Alexis/dp/1552453057 https://www.amazon.com/Quiver-Stephanie-Spinner/dp/0440238196

8. Booked on...The Middle Child
Give us our very own theme song, a werewolf named Brock, and an anfractuous story. . .and what do you have?? Why, this week's episode of Booked on a Feeling, of course! #BOAFcast Cobi risked her sanity while Cory *ahem* cheated a little on the assignment. They both chose the middle book of trilogies and dove right in. If you think that's ridiculous then you'd be right! But who cares about the first child or the third? It's the middle child who always wreaks just the right amount of havoc! While (in Cobi's case) we can't say we understood what was going on, we still enjoyed the work covered! Special thank you to the authors! https://www.amazon.com/Magic-Sight-Supernatural-Bounty-Hunters-ebook/dp/B07M653VR8 https://www.amazon.com/Touching-Darkness-Midnighters-Scott-Westerfeld/dp/0060519568

Giddy up Cow-Folx, because we're a tootin' and a hollerin' 'bout dem Academy Award winning adaptations, y'all! Okay, I think it's out of our. . .YEE HAW. . .systems. This week Cory & Cobi read up on some of the works that went on to inspire Oscar-winning productions. And as you can probably tell, cowboys play an integral role in this episode. No, we didn't plan it! But it's high time we wrangled you in for a listen! Enjoy and please rate, subscribe, and leave us a review. It's the fastest way to our dawg gum hearts, we'll tell you that.

6. Booked on...Discrimination
"We hold these truths to be self-evident..." And no, we aren't referencing the Schuyler Sisters here! But sadly, some truths are harder to stomach than others. Cory & Cobi decided this week to discuss books that cover the heavy topic of racism, both during and after the Civil Rights Movement, which is a fight still being fought today! So sit back, listen as we tell the stories of the embattled, and hopefully we will all come away with a broader understanding of those around us. ***Trigger warning*** because life is full of them, and because these truths need to be discussed if we want to create the positive change we desperately need. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts also to the authors we featured. You folx rock!

More than plain old awful parenting, this episode dives deep into that taboo subject we call. . .incest. Dun dun dun! Cory & Cobi delve dangerously deep into books about incest and the terrible parentals who either perpetrate or ignore the signs of it in their own homes (or underneath. . .) Join us on a trigger happy adventure, 18 to 24 years in the making! Special thanks to the authors, for writing about such controversy with deft and poise.

2. Booked on...Serial Killers
While most things going bump in the night are nothing more than your run-of-the-mill boogie man. . .sometimes it's something a little more sinister. Cory & Cobi talk serial killers, Washington state (honestly where else?), and one of America's most important years in history on this episode of BOAF! ***Spoiler warning*** for those who wish to read and be astounded all on your own!

[ARCHIVE] A Lurid Nick At Nite
Something sordid this way comes! From the bare reaches of the dark web, or possibly a bit more within our reach, come six not-so-original tales of debauchery and debasement. Most peep shows only cost a penny...this one cost Cory and Cobi a Nickel(odeon)...and possibly their childhood. Giving a whole new meaning to the term 'Innocence Lost', we hope you enjoy our obvious discomfort! We did it for the LOLs! Below are the Wikipedia links to the original work used. Some might even say inappropriately so! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpongeBob_SquarePants https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Korra https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hunger_Games https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppa_Pig https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avatar:_The_Last_Airbender https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrek https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_%26_Josh https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supernatural_(American_TV_series) If you enjoyed listening, please feel free to check out our Patreon page.

[ARCHIVE] Cory's Inner Thesaurus
Listen along as Cory and Cobi dive deep into the world of The Handmaid's Tale, written by Margaret Atwood. Brought to life by the effervescent Elizabeth Moss in Hulu's adaptive work, we dissect some of the main themes and discuss why such a disturbing take on the world these literary characters live in is shockingly (and sadly) very similar to our own.
