TV in Books

I've come across some TV Tie-Ins that I've enjoyed so I thought I should share them with my fellow TV & book lovers!

The Bro Code for Parents: What to Expect When You're Awesome by Barney Stinson

Ok, so I was sold on this one because Neil Patrick Harris narrates the audiobook. Neil Patrick Harris really needs to narrate more because he is awesome.

Thanks to Netflix, I've recently become a fan of How I Met Your Mother, which after a long marathon, I am caught up on. The book is written by Barney and narrated by Barney, so be prepared for lots of laughs and Barney-appropriate baby advice. It's sure to make you laugh and maybe roll your eyes, but it's all out of Barney love, right? He even has new versions of songs to sing with your kids, new bro-approved stories to tell, and lots of helpful bro advice like when is the best time to conceive your child so you don't miss the Game of Thrones premiere.

A short, fun audiobook that would make a great gift to new and expecting parents who are fans of the show.


  1. LEGEN...wait for it...DARY. (Couldn't resist.) Love the show and the book looks like fun.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Are you familiar with the middle-grade novel, Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen by award-winning author Donna Gephardt? It's about a girl who desperately wants to win at Jeopardy! This isn't a direct tie-in from the producers of a TV show, but it's a great read. Thanks for your review about books and TV.

  4. It was a great audiobook! I need to go back and listen to the first Bro Code.

    Lori-I have Olivia Bean in my TBR pile! :)
