    Ep 8: Favorite Book-to-Movie Adaptations

    04/03/2019 Duración: 26min

    It's been a long unplanned hiatus, but Long Distance Lit is back! In this episode, Katie and Sarah reveal their favorite existing book-to-movie adaptations. We also learn from Sarah's picks that she loves animated films, and from Katie's picks that her taste follows no discernible pattern and can be predicted by no living mortal. This discussion is specific to adaptations where we've read the book as well as seen the movie/tv show. We have somehow managed to keep from talking about the Harry Potter movies - a Harry Potter episode will happen one day, we promise! Next episode, we'll be sharing a super special update from Sarah in regards to a book series discussed in a previous episode. Episodes are released the first weekend of the month. You can find us on our website and Instagram. You can also find Sarah on Instagram and YouTube.

    This month, Katie and Sarah are discussing Sarah's favorite book by her favorite author, I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak. Spoilers for the novel are from 7:19 to 26:06. Note: This book includes a scene where the main character witnesses a sexual assault. The scene is not graphic or gratuitous, and we mention it in passing in the podcast because it is relevant to the plot, but if you may be triggered by this, you might want to skip this episode. Next episode, we'll be discussing book-to-movie adaptations coming out in 2018 and 2019. Episodes are released the first weekend of the month. You can find us on our website, Instagram, and Twitter.

    Ep 4: Childhood Favorites #2: Katie and The Bailey School Kids

    12/03/2018 Duración: 17min

    It's been an long and unexpected hiatus, but Long Distance Lit is back! This episode is the second part of our two-part special, where Sarah and I each discuss the childhood book series that made us lifelong bookworms. This month, Katie will be talking about her love (and shame) of the series The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids by Marcia T. Jones and Debbie Dadey, along with her fondness for emo teens, her distaste for jerk redheaded third graders, and inarguably the best Halloween costume ever. These books are pretty formulaic and don't have overarching plot lines, so feel free to listen along whether or not you've read the books. Episodes are released the first weekend of the month. You can find us on our website, Instagram, and Twitter. You can also find Sarah on Instagram and YouTube.
