Unexpected Joy - Books that Surprised Us in Excellent Ways

Unabridged: A Book Podcast

Sep 15 2021 • 33 mins

In this Unabridged episode, Jen, Sara, and Ashley share book recommendations for book picks that surprised us and brought unexpected joy. Our recommendations, including Rebecca Stead’s The List of Things that Will Not Change, Patrik Svensson’s The Book of Eels: Our Enduring Fascination with the Most Mysterious Creature in the Natural World, and Tiffany Haddish’s The Last Black Unicorn, are very different from each other, but they were all books that turned out to be more than what we expected.

Visit the Unabridged website for our full show notes and links to the books mentioned in the episode.
