This month, we’re chatting about some of the famous female leads of YA that people seem to love to hate. Bella Swan from Twilight, Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games…. and some lesser known ladies.

Books we read this month:

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Marked by P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast

The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

For this month’s podcast, we’re trying something a little bit different. We’re discussing Anne of Green Gables, but as a jumping of point to a larger convo on family structures in YA… and wondering if there is a happy family in the bunch!

Seriously, tweet us if you know a good YA novel with a functional family.

For this month’s episode, we’re discussing The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Katie’s got a bone to pick with this one… And I’m just trying to mop the tears off my library book! This one gets a little bit contentious, a little boozy, and extra sweary.
