Fans of young adult (YA) literature should check out the library’s new podcast, Spill Lit. Each episode, YA superfans Katharine and Patty try to convince non-fan Sarah of all the merits of YA books. Hear our takes on different titles, and what we liked and didn’t like about all aspects of each book; from the writing style, to the plot points, and the cover art. Titles from a wide variety of genres are discussed, as well as what elements of a book draw us in (talking animals, found family, romance) and what turns us off (aliens, detectives, serials.)
Find out more about featured YA books in our catalog and discover new titles that you would like to check out yourself!
Spill Lit is released every two weeks and is available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. Search, Gwinnett Library to find both new and archived episodes.
