Papercuts Podcast Episode 2 – Trailer Talk

Hey YA fans! So that podcast I mentioned back on December 3rd is still going strong! Along with my long-time reader/writer friends Cyna (You’re Killing Me Reviews) and Robin (Robin Connelly @Blogspot), let me introduce the second episode of Papercuts Podcast, where we introduce you to our book-to-movie review project. The first part of the project, Trailer Talk, is linked below!

As a heads up, this should be the last podcast were Robin has any sound issues (she’s purchased a bunch of new tech to help out with this!!) Thanks for your patience and understanding. :D

    Three friends discuss the wide world of Young Adult literature and entertainment—with a heavy dose of skepticism and snark! “Papercuts Podcast: Because YA Needs to Hear This!”

    Papercuts Podcast #2 – Trailer Talk (46:56): We’re back! Ollie, Robin, and Cyna introduce a new project, and snark – er, discuss the trailers for The Host, City of Bones, Warm Bodies, and Beautiful Creatures. And we come bearing snark. Also, theme music!

You can find the trailers and more info on the podcast at the link! Stay tuned for Episode 3: Warm Bodies – Movie Review!

    Queen Victoria’s personal journals inform this captivating first-person account of one of history’s most prominent female leaders.Queen Victoria most certainly left a legacy—under her rule as the longest reigning female monarch in history, the British Empire was greatly expanded and significant industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military changes occurred within the United Kingdom. To be a young woman in a time when few other females held positions of power was to lead in a remarkable age—and because Queen Victoria kept personal journals, this historical novel from award-winning author Carolyn Meyer shares authentic emotional insight along with accurate information, weaving a true story of intrigue and romance.
