Episode 64 – Bests & Worsts of 2016 (Part 1, Children’s & YA)
Tune in to our Bests & Worsts of 2016 episodes to hear us discuss these titles and read excerpts from our favorites and least favorites! Please note:
We counted things that we read in 2016, regardless of publication year.
We didn’t count anything that we read specifically for this podcast, so our worst books are aside from those.
For that reason, we picked top 5 favorites and only 1 least favorite–we have this whole podcast to talk about bad books, so for these episodes we’re choosing to focus on the positive!
Some of our “worsts” are really just “least best.” Listen to the podcast to hear more detail!

Funny content, a bit rambling
I like this podcast, especially as I am big reader. They can get a bit rambling at times, and the vocal fry is strong with this one, but it is overall pretty funny.

pithy and hilarious
I love the way the girls and their guests unpack the books with honest and informed opinions, with hilarious results.
