About the show
"I've wanted to do something like this podcast for a long time, but after listening to the hosts and guests rip into The Crucible (and other books), I think that niche is pretty full. And filled by a really great show. Terrible Book Club is sort of like the conversation you have in your head when you read a bad book and wish you could throw those thoughts out into the world for others to hear. It's hilarious, unflinching in its criticism, and oddly rather informative. Kudos to these lovely folks for a lovely podcast."— Arconna
"I've been listening to Terrible BookClub since way back in 2015 when it was on LibSyn, and I'm truly ashamed to only be reviewing it now, because it is so good. Paris and Chris dish up hilarious takes on truly awful-sounding books, from the obscure (Bridges of Maradonia, anyone?) to the inexplicably popular (never heard of Marked? Apparently it's the #2 vampire series, behind Twilight). The resulting banterful book club has often had me in stitches. (Seriously, listen to their recent mini-sode about healing crystals and try not to end up snickering on the bus. I dare you.) Anyone who loves talking about books, or just having a good laugh, should give this podcast a shot."— TheKetchupFlows
"I just finished to the Art of the deal Episode; I loved it. Paris and Chris are both really funny, great voices for podcast; they work off each other well and have a good dynamic. I expected myself to listen to the episode in chunks, but the hour or so flew by and I had listened to the whole thing without even realizing it because it was engaging the whole time. Big fan and look forward to binging the rest."— Sam LiButti
"Let Chris and Paris take you on a journey through the wasteland of terrible literature. Both hosts give honest (yet hilarious) critiques of the featured book. You'll be adding this to your podcast rotation after listening to any one episode."— Adam R.
"Even when I think I'm not interested in the subject of discussion, the two hosts always keep my attention! They work well together and are consistently amusing."— MPOL85
