pinkpurplecatsinthesky ,

Love this podcast!

I love this podcast!! The writers on writing episodes help me become a better writer. The books that are featured on this podcast are extremely similar to those that I read. If I’m out of book suggestions, I’ll look on this podcast and read one of the books and after finishing it, I listen to the episode about the podcast. Are you looking for a kid friendly radio drama to listen to? Well look no further! I absolutely recommend listening to the Fina Mendoza Mysteries!!
I know that this was SoRt of a long review so thank you so much for reading this. Don’t forget about the fact that you have a voice. When life gives you something special, take it, use it. LIVE YOUR LIFE!!
