Swoony Boys Podcast Episode 75: September 2019 #EJKMBookClub ft. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

We’re back with our monthly book club and here’s our next episode of the #EJKMBookClub. Each month, one of us chooses a book and makes the other three read it, and this time, it was Erin’s turn to choose our book.

This month Erin chose: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund!

This episode is all about For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund. Have you read it yet? As with all of our other book club episodes, we’d love to hear your thoughts, so have a listen and join us using the #EJKMBookClub hashtag on instagram and twitter. And like with the other books we’ve discussed that are years old, we do have some SPOILERS ahead. We tried to keep it down, really. We’ll also be announcing our next month’s pick in this episode.
