Greetings and welcome to the landing page for Bro Bibles, our weekly series in which staff writer Miles Klee—who in addition to being MEL’s Shit-Poster-in-Chief is an actual novelist—ruins his summer by reading the books your worst ex-boyfriend holds dear to his heart.
It’s our hope that by engaging with these often problematic and rarely rewarding texts, Klee will save everybody else the trouble — and perhaps learn why they’re so popular among his cursed gender. And more importantly, he will prevent you from ruining your hard-earned vacation (or at the very least, your beach reading) with the tomes below.
So leave them unopened and buried on the clearance rack at your last remaining Barnes & Noble—which is exactly where they belong.
