About

Book ‘n Bitch is a podcast from two gals who love young adult fiction in all forms. We’ll talk about what we love, what we hate, and¬†everything in between.

From Kenna:

Heyo! I am newly 30, living in SF, married with two dogs. My favorite book ever is Pride and Prejudice, and my favorite author is Christopher Moore.

My most favorite YA book is Ella Enchanted, which I read thanks to my excellent 8th grade English teacher, Ms. Bechtel. She is the person who started my voracious consumption of young adult lit. Her library was always open, and was stocked with all the smart, silly, giddily romantic books we could read!

I love yoga, dancing (Lindy Hop, among other things), and watching too much TV.

From Katie:

Hiya! I’m a little less recently 30, living in Los Angeles, also married, with one adorable dog who is both a jerk and an emotional diva. My favorite book ever…might also be Pride and Prejudice (damnit, Kenna!) or maybe Cloud Atlas or maybe Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close–or maybe others, depends on what lens I’m looking at the world through at the moment.

My favorite book growing up that I still really connect with is The Witch of Blackbird Pond. I fell in love with character growth/personal growth/complex characters in this book, and always love when I find a YA book that gives me this level of juicy character growth.

I am almost always either listening to a podcast or reading a book or watching a show (the podcasts are all very good, the books and shows are often terrible, but I love them anyways). And I’m a huge nerd and just started playing D&D–I’ll let you guys know how that goes!
