The Battle of Hogwarts and the Red Wedding–what do they have in common? DEATH!

It’s what authors and readers alike dread: character deaths! From the innocent to the deserving, we talk in-depth about some of the worst (and best) character deaths in our favorite YA books! We ask why some of the deaths are more tragic than others and discuss how readers should respond to deaths. And yes, we talk about THAT death from Veronica Roth (all on her birthday, no less!).

Also in this episode…

  • Saul attempts to make some jokes and they’re really bad.
  • Michael tried to meet Victoria Aveyard but she was too popular for him (or something like that).
  • We talk about those crazy lizard mutts in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2’ trailer
  • The ‘Ready Player One’ movie has a release date and Saul shares his thoughts on the book.
  • Everyone’s waiting on Sony to begin promotion of ‘The 5th Wave’ movie.
  • We talk about when we think ‘The 5th Wave’ movie trailer might be released.
