Today's special Bonus episode features the book The Starless Sea, by Erin Morgenstern. While this is not a YA book, it's definitely one I wanted to hash out and chat about with a friend. Author Megan O'Russell joins me on today's episode as we try to figure out just what happened in the Starless Sea. We're a little confused...but have a LOT of fun trying to figure it all out. A little about The Starless Sea: Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues—a bee, a key, and a sword—that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians—it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also of those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose—in both the mysterious book and in his own life.Check out all of Megan O'Russell's books on her WEBSITECheck out Megan O'Russell on social media!InstagramFacebookHave a question about The Starless Sea?

Join my friends Bethanie, Taylor, and me as we dive into Marissa Meyer's newest book, Instant Karma!Instant Karma is a sweet, contemporary romance about teenager, and chronic overachiever, Prudence Barnett. Prudence is always quick to cast judgment on the lazy, rude, and arrogant residents of her coastal town. Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her.Pru giddily makes use of the power, punishing everyone from public vandals to mean gossips, but there is one person on whom her powers consistently backfire: Quint Erickson, her slacker of a lab partner. Quint is annoyingly cute and impressively noble, especially when it comes to his work with the rescue center for local sea animals.When Pru resigns herself to working at the rescue center for extra credit, she begins to uncover truths about baby otters, environmental upheaval, and romantic crossed signals―not necessarily in that order. Her newfound karmic insights reveal how thin the line is between virtue and vanity, generosity and greed . . . love and hate… and fate.Check out Bethanie and Taylor on social media!Bethanie: Prince Kai Fan PodTaylor M: Renegade AnarchistCheck out Taylor's cute Merch page: Angel.Dane.ShopPacific Marine Mammal CenterHave a question about Instant Karma?
