A podcast where two twenty-somethings drink their way through young adult novels
Emily and Christina dig back into the second and final installment of Marie Lu's technicolor near-future Warcross series with "Wildcard," which leads them to contemplate the very nature of life and death, give some investment advice, and incites one of the hosts to launch their 2020 campaign??
Emily and Christina kick off a new series with Furyborn by Claire Legrand -- an epic fantasy with two fierce heroines intertwined in a millennia-spanning conflict. The girls unpack the captivating opening chapter, make prophecy predictions, and clash over an angel villain love interest (per usual).
#24: A Reaper at the Gates
Emily and Christina jump back into Sabaa Tahir's bestselling An Ember in the Ashes series with the third book, A Reaper at the Gates. The girls catch up with Laia, Elias and Helene and try to predict how this romantic (and gut-wrenching) series will conclude.
#23: The Cruel Prince
Emily and Christina gush over The Cruel Prince by Holly Black -- the first book in a dark, whimsical series centered around a mortal girl in faerie court. Brimming with complicated family dynamics, royal intrigue, twisted power plays, and (of course) romance, the girls may even go as far as to call it their favorite book of the year.
#22: Children of Blood and Bone
Emily and Christina jump into the West African-inspired fantasy debut, Children of Blood and Bone, by Tomi Adeyemi and explore how and why it's taken the YA world by storm.
Emily and Christina go deep underground to talk about S. Jae-Jones's haunting debut Wintersong. They navigate a labyrinth of questions such as: Can goblins be hot? How did this book legally get published? Is our protagonist actually Beethoven?
