Hilarious and Heartwarming
I have gotten so many new books through this podcast! I listen to it on my commutes like I’m talking books with close friends (really, I talk at the phone I’m playing it on sometimes). And the way they “talk back” with the Would You Rather audience participation segments makes me feel heard. They always make me laugh and I love how they’re always so supportive of their authors.
I love listening to Amanda and Claire recap and discuss YA novels- especially the House of Night series. I cannot help but crack up every time Claire attempts a Stevie Rae “y’all!”. Being a fellow Arkansan (who has family in Tulsa of all places!, I love hearing that southern twang from Amanda. I cannot wait to hear more from these two awesome ladies!
