As probably every book podcast is doing, we read A Wrinkle in Time before the movie comes out! This is a book Meghan read as a kid, but Stephanie and our guest had not read before. We discuss how it feels to read a kids/middle school grade book as an adult, some of our other childhood favorite books (Stephanie and Meghan read a lot of YA horror books?) 

Ileana discusses if this book is the basis for Scientology — we are hoping to get an academic paper out of it, Meghan tries to make IT in this book and It (Pennywise) should be the same thing. 

Thanks to Stephanie, we realize this book is riddled with Mayan names and literary allegories, and how this book refreshed our imaginations. 

We also briefly discuss the movie and how we are all optimistic about the casting and director and costume designer! 

Favorite Childhood books discussed:
Babysitters Club series
RL Stine and Christopher Pike
The Golden Compass series

Book Drink: hot tea or cocoa — Ileana also discusses a Silverfizz drink off-air that seemed perfect.

Season 2 of Judging Book Covers kicks off with a host only episode! We read a book that takes on the question: "If Women ruled the world, would it be better?" The Power by Naomi Alderman takes this question and laughs in its face. We discuss the four storylines of the book, the subtle shifts of power from men to women, and the relationship with the religious and political world. 

As with most books discussed on this podcast, there are lots of spoilers here! 

Book Drink: Shots of Tequila  

Join us in two weeks and read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle with Ileana Garcia!
