    You Love Me (You #3)

    You waited all week and now you are once again pressing play on YA, We Read It! so you can find out what happens next to resident bad guy Joe Goldberg after he was arrested at the Taco Bell. We knew you couldn't get enough of us! Laura and Meggie are closing out their You season with a discussion on the third book in the series.

Instead this book picks up a year and a half later and he's relocated to the Pacific Northwest to lay low and fall in love with local librarian Mary Kay. Can Joe turn over a new leaf? Or will he fall back into his old behaviors?

    Interview with Kate Brian (w/ Kieran Scott)

    Interview with Kate Brian (w/ Kieran Scott)

    Back in the third season of YA, We Read It! Meggie and Laura read through the Private Series and today they are revisting those books with none other than the author Kate Brian herself! Except (and this really shocked us) Kate Brian was just a pen name for Kieran Scott the whole time. And she wrote many many MANY YA books as Kate Brian in the 2000s. Tune in as we dive in deep to Kieran's prolific career writing some of our favorite books and what she's been up to since!

    Final Thoughts: The Maze Runner Trilogy

    Final Thoughts: The Maze Runner Trilogy

    We ran through The Maze, survived The Scorch, finally found safety (and even got some prequel action) and the time has yet again come for Meggie and Laura to passionately put to rest their final thoughts of The Maze Runner in its entirety. Was Teresa actually evil? Was Thomas a worthy protagonist? What was Brenda's motivation (and HOW OLD WAS SHE)? What did we love? And what did we want more of? All of this and more on this week's episode! Plus, we're going somewhere even YOU didn't think we would go for Season 8!

    The Fever Code (The Maze Runner #5; Prequel #2)

    The Fever Code (The Maze Runner #5; Prequel #2)

    This week on YA, We Read It! Laura and Meggie are joined by Arthur Howell (creator of 2 Cents Critic blog & podcast) for a lovely stroll into the fifth Maze Runner book. Following the story of how the maze got made, we focus on Thomas, our protagonist once again, and his life under Wicked's roof from early childhood to his teens. Teresa and him become fast friends and meet the other Gladers over the years ultimately until the maze is completed and they fully realize how bad Wicked actually is. The Fever Code works hard to answer all the questions from the original trilogy (yet arguably leaves us with more questions, but hey! who's counting?) as it flashes through the years up until Thomas' first day in the maze.

Won me over

I didn’t know what to expect with YWRI but it exceeded expectations. The hosts are warm and so loving. They make the material so fun and really give books I used to love a whole new meaning. As an avid ya reader, I can’t imagine a better podcast
