Rayne and Delilah's Midnite Matinee
Rayne and Delilah's Midnite Matinee | Jeff Zentner
17 posts | 18 read | 18 to read
Josie and Delia are best friends and co-hosts on their own public access TV show, Midnite Matinee. They dress as vampires Rayne and Delilah, perform daft skits involving skeleton raves and dog weddings, and introduce the weekly so-bad-it's-good low-budget horror movie. But the end of senior year is coming, and Josie is torn between pursuing her television dreams in a new city or staying making TV with her BFF. What's more, she's just met a boy, Lawson, who is totally not her type, but is just a little bit intriguing . . . Meanwhile, Delia is searching for her dad, who walked out on her and her mom ten years ago. When the private investigator she hired unearths his contact details, she agonises over digging up the past. A roadtrip to ShiverCon, a convention for horror filmmakers, may just have the answers the two need - but will Josie and Delia be prepared for life taking some seriously unexpected plot-twists?

Rayne and Delilah's Midnight Matinee is book about friendship foremost, but the characters (real names Josie and Delia) also have strong character growth individually.
⁣As a book about friends, is it refreshing to see that the romance doesn't overtake that story. All around, a good book.⁣

This was such a fun book and I laughed a lot! Seriously, there were times I snorted while reading on the metro 😂 but I also felt a pull at my heartstrings, and shed a few tears along the way. The characters were so well written, and I feel a closeness with Josie and Delia since I also have a show (podcast vs tv in the book) with a group of my girlfriends. This was my first Zentner book, and I‘m looking forward to reading his other books.

Receipe for Midnite Matinee

1. Take the heart of 'The Serpent King', add the banter of Gilmore Girls (less pop culture, more wierd snark), and make it about two high school girls who are public access horror show hosts trying to figure out their futures.

2. Add in dancing skeletons, road trips, MMA fighting, and someone who honestly thinks beagles grow into basset hounds.

3. Mix well until you're both laughing and crying.

4. Enjoy!

A #SundayShelfie of my #NTBF19 #bookhaul! I had bought the tagged book previously, but brought it for signing purposes. The others I couldn't resist, and only the greatest of willpower and @Merethebookgal's close supervision prevented me from buying A Blade So Black as well. The one on the end is a graphic novel #ARC I won, so I'll keep you up to date!

Two best friends. One has a charming life, the other is front seat on the struggle bus. This book is about growing up and apart while they produce a late night public access show 👭📽🧟‍♂️

I had a super rough day. After dealing with excruciating dental pain for a week... I finally talked myself past my dentist-phobia and went in. Impacted wisdom tooth pushed against the nerve of the tooth next to it... and no oral surgeon can see me until NEXT THURSDAY. I‘m in some major pain. But my pretties came in today!

MaleficentBookDragon So sorry. I had dental work yesterday and it sucks. Did they at least give you something for the pain? 11mo

I love Jeff Zetner, and even though this was a bit of a departure (overall much more lighthearted) I still thoroughly enjoyed it! He has a fantastic voice and excels at dialogue. Plus I always love a book centered around female friendship-- especially since these two weirdos are both adorable and complicated. And I knew nothing about horror hosting, but it made for a really interesting element.

4 stars / ⭐⭐⭐⭐

businessmermaid This looks so good! 11mo

This is pretty great. Suspect I'm going to be reading Zentner's first two books very shortly.
