It's a recording from Indigenous People's Day, so everyone's a little groggy, including Liberty Hardy (@FranzenComesAlive), senior contributing writer for Book Riot and host of the "All the Books!" podcast — which has, like, 600 episodes, which is a lot more than us — and a person who reads 700+ books a year! She's never done a podcast like THIS, though, where we're the ones asking the questions. How does she find time to read so much? Does she read on her laptop? Has she read the books we're reading right now? Does she watch TV? Does she agree that the Internet is evil and makes us sad? Plus: Her recommendations for spooky books that are great for the Halloween season. This one's a banger. We talk about a LOT of books. Sam may have bristled at some point, though. (Also, it's "Archenemies," not "Archrivals," that Marissa Meyer wrote.)

Lewis's debut novel, The Undead Truth of Us, was told it would not be shelved at Barnes & Noble.  Several articles, including Book Riot and Publishers Marketplace, delve into how this policy means fewer middle-grade and debut authors will get their books on the shelves at Barnes & Noble. *The book titles mentioned include affiliate links.
