Booked All Night

Booked All Night

www.bookedallnight.blog
A semi-weekly podcast about YA lit and our intense feelings, hosted by Jessica Tuckerman, Magdalyn Ann, and Daniel Stanton. The long version: three super dorky friends and their feelings about YA lit. Jess, the sci-fi dilettante; Maggie, the fantasy cultist; Daniel, the contemporary boi. With our powers combined, we read across the genre spectrums to bring you amazing book talks, interviews with fantastic authors, and general silliness that is all our own. You can sponsor an episode by sending a message to [email protected] and letting them know the details. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/bookedallnight/support
