It’s mid-January, so of course it’s time for Papercuts to send 2013 out with a lively conversation! Join us as we reflect on 2013, and indulge in a little discussion of the progression of the podcast, our favorite episodes, and share some exciting hints for upcoming episodes (spoilers: Ollie SINGS). When we remember that this is a YA podcast, we also chat about trends in 2013, look forward to trends in 2014, and of course, talk about our favorite book/s of the year. EXCITING.
So what were your guys’ favorite 2013 reads? Do you have any recs to help get Robin out of her YA funk? Any non-shitty books for Cyna? Does ANYONE have an in with LJ Smith so we can get this goddamn book published? Let us know in the comments!
