Have you ever wanted to hear us talk a lot about having a troll boyfriend and a sword? You’re in luck, because this week we’re chatting about Holly Black’s Valiant, in which those two basic human desires are satisfied. Also, how much is too much to show, why do we love monster romance, and finding ourselves in a story about finding yourself.
Join us as we venture deep under the earth into a wild, fae bacchanal of excess and indulgence – or don’t, because we’re talking about Holly Black’s Tithe in episode 86! As one of our favorite YA books when we were young adults, how did this shape the people we became? How did we handle the creepy parts? And what would we do if we found ourselves with an invitation to a faerie party?
