    "Her emotions are SO intense."Daphne and (a very congested) Kellie take on their first listener-requested read with Lauren Oliver's Delirium (2011)!

    “The world has been covered in Cheeto dust!”Kellie and Daphne continue their break from our regularly scheduled programming to talk about the Divergent movies. Rants and tangents ensue. We also take a moment to discuss and respond to criticisms of Veronica Roth's 2018 post-Allegiant-epilogue epilogue short story, "We Can Be Mended." Plus, a very special announcement!Follow us on social media @rereadingtherevolution for updates and behind-the-scenes details
  • “Debbies All the Way Down” | Turtles All the Way Down (Special Episode!)

    38:48
    We deviate from our usual book recaps to discuss something very special: John Green's Turtles All the Way Down (2017) and the movie adaptation that FINALLY came out this month on Max. Heads up, his one's a little loose and goofy. Several rants occur, we unleash our wrath on Goodreads, and a friendship is tested.Leave us a comment in the Q&A section on Spotify or on social media or send us a DM letting us know what you thought of the movie or our episode!Follow us on social media @rereadingtherevolution for updates and behind-the-scenes details!

That's the scariest thing I can imagine."Kellie, Daphne, and special guest Colin take on the shuckin' Maze, and spoiler alert: there's running (but maybe less than you'd think?). We share our formative experiences with the book as children, and talk all things The Maze Runner (2009), James Dashner, Newtmas, and a whole bunch of other klunk.Follow us on social media @rereadingtherevolution for updates and behind-the-scenes details!

    "And at this point, I almost screamed."Kellie and Daphne go back to Chicago one last time to learn what's beyond the fence in Allegiant (2013)--and it's a lot to take in.
