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, Jaime chose: The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas!

This episode is all about The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas. 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.
