About the Podcast

JK, It’s Magic formed when two people, Jessie and Kelly, met at the library and discovered they had a bajillion things in common — particularly a profound love of reading. They then decided to take their love of all things bookish to the next level, and share that love with all of you by creating a space to talk about YA fantasy in a critical way. We hope that this podcast becomes a platform to discover new worlds, facilitate deeper engagement with our favorite books, and encourage others to take part in the journey.

Accessibility is important to us — whether that’s for our episodes, website, or social media. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with suggestions for improvement. We can always do better!

Have you read this book yet!?

I listened to the audiobook of All Boys Aren't Blue by George M. Johnson and it was fantastic! It was heart wrenching, it was heartwarming, and I loved it so much.

QOTD: Who's a new to you author you love?

Happy release day to @tracydeonn and Legendborn! I am currently reading this book, and I am in love! Tracy Deonn will definitely be an author whose books I buy immediately in the future.
