Drunk on KidLit
Need a fun, flirty show to keep up to date on YA and kid lit? I'm really enjoying this new podcasts a lot and my book budget just went into the red!
This podcast was recommended by a friend. The first few episodes were really good and the host is decent, but I've lost interest. This podcast is more for entertainment than information. Some good book recs from time to time, though, if you don't already have more books on your TBR list than you can possibly ever read. I've stopped subscribing to this one. Now I'm trying out Books Between and All the Wonders.
Kidlit Drink Night Podcast
Terrific podcast. Great caliber of guests with New York Times best selling authors like Cassie Beasley, Tom Angelburger and James Dashner.
