    Episode 6 - The Book Thief

    It's 2019! What better way to celebrate the new year than to post a conversation we had back in November? Yes, we've been busy this winter and holiday season, but we're back with a discussion of Samara's all-time favorite book, Markus Zusak's modern classic The Book Thief.

We loved every page of it.

    Episode 2- The Hate U Give

    The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a HUGE book with a lot to talk about, and we did our best to do it justice in our 30-minute timeframe. We talk about family, Harry Potter gang theory, and happy endings in fiction versus real life.
