It's interview central around here this month! Joining us this week is Chelsea Sedoti, author of The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett and the recently released As You Wish. We had a wonderful discussion about anxiety and writing and how we all handle the pressure. As You Wish What if you could ask for anything- and get it? In the sandy Mojave Desert, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. But Eldon wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, because in Madison, everyone gets one wish—and that wish always comes true. Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but Eldon has seen how wishes have broken the people around him. And with the lives of his family and friends in chaos, he’s left with more questions than answers. Can he make their lives better? How can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? And what hope is there for any of them if happiness isn’t an achievable dream? Doubts build, leading Eldon to a more outlandish and scary thought: maybe you can’t wish for happiness…maybe, just maybe, you have to make it for yourself. BUY LINKS Amazon . Barnes&Noble . BooksAMillion Chelsea Sedoti Chelsea Sedoti I’ve lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for most of my life. It’s a weird place. I’m not a fan of casinos, but I love the Mojave Desert. I also love the woods and hills and dying steel mill towns of eastern Ohio, which is where my family is from. I wish I could split my time between both places. I have a nerdy-cool husband and a goofy dog and evil cat. I read a lot of books. I think Mad Men is the best show ever made. I rock climb, even though I’m afraid of heights. I would eat red velvet cupcakes from the Cupcakery every day if I could. One of my favorite things in the world is exploring abandoned places. I love writing because it lets me have adventures. I love writing because it is an adventure. That’s what you should know about me: I think everything should feel like an adventure. With a little effort, it can.

This super special (totes late but you'll love it) episode we were joined by none other than MarcyKate Connolly, author of Shadow Weaver, Monstrous, Ravenous, and more!

This week we're talking about The Death Cure! The final installment in the Maze Runner series. The fact that we are talking about it is your warning for spoilers!
Since the latest (and final) Maze Runner movie, The Death Cure, only grossed $23.5 million in its opening weekend, apparently that means that YA movies are a declining fad. Jess and Maggie have some thoughts on that, thoughts that include almost twenty five YA titles that were options for movies just this year, as well as books they would love to see get some screen adaptations. Preferably TV shows for Jess so she can spend the day watching an accurate 19 hour production.
