We here at FMKlit think that a good book is worth more than its weight in gold. And while we don’t always read good books, this episode’s books have plenty of gold because today we’re doing Treasure Hunters! For this expedition of an episode, we read “Unexpected Treasure: The Treasure Hunters Series Book I” by Aidan Willows and Grace Risata, and “Treasure of Love (Love Series Book 2)” by Scotty Cade. Today our hosts discuss alien dicks; the do’s and don’ts of underwear shopping; and the most important quality a person can possibly have: a competent pussy.
Pour yourself some fine brandy, climb into those silky sheets, and crank up the gramophone, because today, our most esteemed listeners, we’re doing classics! For this very fancy episode, we read “Persuasion” by Jane Austen, and “Maurice” by E. M. Forster. Our learned hosts discuss some of the most esoteric of subjects: where one can find the reset button on the human body, a strong contender for the “Worst Ex in Literature” Award, and whatever the fuck a pump room is.
They say love is the strongest force in the universe and, in the interest of science, we here at FMKlit are going to test this theory. Because today we’re doing human/alien lovin’!! Today we read “Ruth’s Bonded (The Gandry Book 1)” by V.C. Lancaster and “Planet Glecerus [Alien Lovers 1] (Siren Publishing Menage Everlasting ManLove)” by Olivia Black. On this intergalactic episode, our hosts discuss the caloric risk of too much sex, the dangers of hide and seek, and Claire wants it known that she is not here for necklace.
Is that a 2×4 in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Hope you’re ready for a good lay….ing of bricks. Because today we’re doing construction workers! This time around we read “Hard Wood: A Steamy Romantic Comedy” by Tara Crescent and “One Brick at a Time” by J. P. Bowie. For this hard tool-filled episode, our hosts discuss the joy of a good meet-cute, sex furniture, and the origin of witch hats.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that millennials with too much time on their hands must be in want of starting a podcast. This direct quote is very wise, and that’s why today we’re doing modern retellings of Jane Austen! Today we read “The Code for Love and Heartbreak” by Jillian Cantor (Emma) and “Most Ardently” by Susan Mesler-Evans (Pride & Prejudice). On this especially literary episode, our hosts discuss student debt, a startling artifact from Claire’s past, and Neil comes up with the best worst business idea ever.

Most Ardently by Susan Mesler-Evans
The Code for Love and Heartbreak by Jillian Cantor
Nothing quite speaks to the quiet intimacy of falling in love like doing it in front of cameras and millions of viewers. Which is why we’re doing reality dating shows! Today we read “One to Watch” by Kate Stayman-London and “The Charm Offensive” by Alison Cochrun. For this heavily produced and subtly scripted episode, our hosts discuss the marriageability of pastries, how NOT to dismantle a system, and that Claire would be the most evil reality show producer ever.
We here at FMK love a boss ass lady. And today we’re taking that very literally because this episode is all about ladies inheriting a business! For this fiscally sound episode, we read “Twisted Creek” by Jodi Thomas and “Satisfaction Guaranteed” by Karelia Stetz-Waters. Our boss bitch hosts discuss some fantastic cartoony villains, the many nuances of sex toys, and when the romance actually detracts from the romance novel.
Bigfoots? Bigfeet? However you say it, we’re gonna get us some elusive lovers today! And to do that, we read “Bigfoot and the Librarian” by Linda Winstead Jones and “Going Sasquatch (Finnegan & Morrow Book 1)” by Jess Whitecroft. In this episode, our hairy hosts discuss retractable bigfoot penises, the dangers of a 12th birthday party, and that himbos who are nice deserve love too. Also, for the record, Claire said “baking.”

Interior; Podcast studio; day. Two tipsy hosts are yammering on about something. Cross-fade to…ROMANCE! We hope you like movie magic, dear listeners, because today we’re doing Screenwriters! For this episode we read “It’s Complex” by Shoma Narayanan and “This is Kind of an Epic Love Story” by Kacen Callender. In this well-structured episode, our hosts discuss when the back of a book lies to us, when teens make terrible decisions, and to always check your smoke detectors.
Happy 4 year anniversary, listeners!!
It’s Complex by Shoma Narayanan
This is Kind of an Epic Love Story by Kacen Callender
We’re back, dear listeners, with a full episode! But this one is going to be a little different. You may remember in ep. 49 “Hate to Love” that we read a little book called “The Hating Game: A Novel” by Sally Thorn. And we….had things to say about it. One of those things was that it was being made into a movie. So we watched it! Even Christine got in on the fun and we discuss the movie vs. the book. Did our feelings change? Is it a good adaptation? And is there justice for Jeanette?
