The great thing about the holidays is that there's a lightness in the air that TRULY only happens once a year.

We were in love?!

Narrating a book together
Welp, we took our love of audiobooks to a new level in 2018 when we narrated our FIRST audiobook together! In Left Hanging by Cindy Dorminy we played Darla and Theo. Two hardworking southern individuals that had a one night stand in college that resulted in a bebe that Theo had NO idea about. DRAMAAAAA! But we aren't here to review ourselves, we are here to talk about the process and talk about how the experience influenced our reviews! It's impacted the direction we've taken AudioShelf and also help us realize that we are both HORRIBLE at southern accents :P. --This is the audio from our recent BookTube video.

by Ryan La Sala
Happy bookday to Ryan La Sala's debut novel Reverie! Today we are doing a Reader Q&A for this YA fantasy, and a fantasy it is! It's got it all: Dreams, a drag queen, a boy named Kane that reminders Brad of a wrestler. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions and a metaphor for being yourself. It's a huge step for the LGBTQ+ community that EVERYONE could pick up and learn something from. Check out the Q&A to see if Britney has all of her questions answered in order to give this imaginative debut a read! --This is the audio from our BookTube video.

Okay, so we are no more good. On Sunday, we got the chance of a lifetime to interview Holly Black at the Christiana Mall Barnes & Noble during her The Queen of Nothing book tour. It was beyond amazing to meet her, experience her huge impact on her fans, and just chat with her about books! If YOU have met Holly on any of her book tour stops, tell us about the experience in the comments! We hope you enjoy our interview and that some of your burning questions were asked & answered! :) SPECIAL THANKS! NONE of this would have been possible without the amazing planning of Kaitlyn at the Christiana Mall Barnes and Noble in Newark Delaware, the incredible staff at B&N, Holly's publicist, Siena, and Holly Black herself! We can't thank everyone enough for making this possible and being SO wonderful. Alright, we're crying, we gotta go!
