On this episode, we take a look at a book from Stephanie's TBR list! And it is a dozy of a book, coming in at 500 pages! 

We discuss The Alienist by Caleb Carr, who as a person is also quite fascinating. We review the book through its historical lens and as a murder mystery. We also have a long discussion in which we realize how little Stephanie and Meghan maybe don't understand Easter?

In today's episode, Stephanie and Meghan tackle a book that's been on Meghan's TBR list since she started keeping one: Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi! We both own up quickly to how little we know about the history of the 80s and 90s, especially in the Middle East - both blame the American education system. 

Persepolis is a fantastic graphic memoir about a woman growing up during the 1979 Revolution through the Iran-Iraq War.  We discuss the optimism of her as a child, the term martyr as it is used throughout the book, and the horrifying understanding of having your psyche broken down.  

Book Drink: Good, strong, delicious tea
