Hello all! I’ve decided to put this podcast on a special list for you because it has a super awesome guest, Michael Waters. In this episode, we talked about LGBTQIA+ YA Representation and some books we like. My favourite part about this podcast is that Michael got to talk about some great books, and you can hear me in the background going “yessss”. A huge thanks to Michael for recording this podcast with me, and for putting up with all my computer difficulties!

(Also the podcast does make Michael sound dismissive at the end based on my editing but don’t fret, he said it was a lot of fun to record and he has a blast doing it so yay!)

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
Every Day by David Levithan
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
