Episode Info:

This week, Willa, Emily and I, Aneeqah, are talking about those magical authors that can write multiple books in different genres. We talk a little about the trend of many YA authors writing MG novels, and how that can be really beneficial for authors. We spend a while talking about our tastes in Middle Grade novels. Of course, we spend a lot of time talking about the queen that is Victoria Schwab. (I mean, she was able to write a book, edit a novel, and be on tour all at the same time. If that isn't amazing, I have no idea what is.)

After that discussion, we talk a bout various authors who write across various genres. Many authors are talented enough to be writing across different genres like fantasy and contemporary, others do that and even more- writing different emotional arcs, light vs gritty books, etc. It's amazing how versatile some authors are, and we dive into a diverse list of authors who are fantastic and so, so talented.

And now what you've been waiting for the most... the book list! Remember, we do have all of these compiled for you on a Goodreads shelf as well, for your viewing pleasure.
