Episode 14: Ender’s Game with Carson Long and Millena Silva

Cover

Check out this episode!

This week we have Carson Long and Millena Silva back to discuss their second YA book: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card! Meghan rants about nicknames being stupid, Millena proves that Hunger Games is just an updated female version of Ender’s Game, and Carson braces himself in case Millena says she hates the book. We also try to convince Millena she needs to see IT (and never sleep again), and Meghan gets whiny about Ender’s name and personality. All three of us begin our pitch on the Tim is our mutual friend podcast.

This week we have new guests: Millena Silva and Carson Long of Kennesaw State University’s podcast: Book Club Soda! We discussed our first of two YA books: Once and For All by Sarah Dessen! Meghan and Carson have some serious feelings about this book, but both agree that they will give Sarah Dessen books another try. Millena and Carson take a moment to talk Taylor Swift lyrics, all three kind of roll their eyes at the main character’s first love, discuss YA tropes and major series, and explain that there is a difference between red heads and gingers.
