Love it!

Recently found this pod and binged it. Has everything I want in a podcast about the popular YA books it seems like we all read in middle and high school. Courtney and Clare give a perfect mix of present-day critical analysis and fun with the nostalgia of the time these books were written. Not to mention it doesn’t feel like you’re just listening to two people talk about books, it genuinely feels like you’re having a conversation with two friends about a blast from the past.

Fun nostalgia ride

I was OBSESSED with The Clique and Gossip Girl books when I was a tween and teen, so I’ve really loved listening to this podcast! It’s a great trip down memory lane of how crazy, but fun these books were.

Give it a listen

I was obsessed with the Clique books back in middle school, but I never had anyone to discuss these books with as a child. The Witty Committee completely makes up for it! I adore this podcast. I’m loving the direction Clare and Courtney took this podcast after reviewing the whole series (and movie!)
