June 16, 2015 by


Hopefully you enjoyed seeing fuck all of Abraham Lincoln. This time next week we’ll be reading E. L. James’s Gray, which will certainly be an interesting transition from Magic Tree House. Chapter 10: Readin’ and Writin’ The next step in our story of time traveling to meet Abraham Lincoln is a grammar lesson, because fucking […]

Jack Acts Like a Complete Turd Muffin: Abe Lincoln At Last Chapters 7-9

June 15, 2015 by


In what was possibly one of the darkest cliffhangers in Magic Treehouse history, we left off wondering if a child had just died after being kicked in the head by a horse. There was blood trickling down his head. THIS IS A BOOK FOR KIDS. Chapter 7: Sam’s Farm The chapter begins immediately in the aftermath, with […]

The President Knows About Jack And Annie For Some Reason: Abe Lincoln at Last Chapters 4-6

June 9, 2015 by


Hopefully you’re enjoying our return to the world of Magic Tree House, even though we skipped the forty-five books in between this one and the last one we read. If only we could have done that for Crossfire. Chapter 4: Willie! To bring you up to speed, Jack has found himself roped into hiding under […]

At Last We’re Doing…The Magic Tree House: Abe Lincoln at Last Chapters 1-3

June 8, 2015 by


I’m pumped to be returning to The Magic Tree House series. Don’t get me wrong Sweet Valley High provided a truly special experience, and I have no doubt we’ll be returning to that series, but it was shockingly dense for such a short book. So before diving into the corners of E.L. James’ imagination that are greedier than Eva’s cunt, […]

April 29, 2014 by


Hopefully you enjoyed our reading of Magic Tree House, because we finish it today! [Ariel says: I keep forgetting this book is only like three pages. Whoops!] I’m pretty sure our summary of this book was longer than the book itself. Next week, we’ll be returning to our normal fare of emotionally abusive relationship stories masquerading […]

There Are DINOSAURS All Up In This Bitch!: Magic Tree House #1 Chapters 4-5

April 22, 2014 by


I hope everyone’s enjoying our reading of Magic Tree House so far! Ariel and I have been talking about revisiting more series we enjoyed when we were kids, like our annual Goosebumps reading, because it’s fun to laugh about what remarkably low standards we had when we were kids. And it’s nice to take a […]

Dinosaurs BEFORE Dark? That’s Just Madness: Magic Tree House #1 Chapters 1-3

April 21, 2014 by


If you’re anything like Matt and me, sometimes as much as we love mocking books like Fifty Shades or Beautiful/Walking Disaster, we need a bit of a palate cleanser before starting the next truly awful series, as Matt so eloquently put it when we were discussing the BBGT calendar. [Matthew says: I’m all about being fancy.] It’s hard […]
