On today's episode, Adam is joined by frequent friends of the pod (and 2/3rds of the 3-headed Sass Monster) Andrea and Christina. The three of them hand out bunches of book recommendations that would best be categorized as falling under Young Adult, New Adult, Mystery AND/OR Romance. They talk diverse books, fan fiction, Andrea's birthday and the fact that since the birth of her child she's been reading some DARK novels.
