Hello, magical folx! This week we’re discussing A Dream so Dark by L.L. McKinney, the second book in the Nightmare-verse series! In this episode we’re making predictions about the future books in the series, talking about “urban” fantasy, and coming at you with some major Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker spoilers (you’ve been warned!). For a refresher for what happened in the last book, check out our episode on A Blade So Black.
Here are all the tings mentioned in this week’s episode!
- Let’s start with a question! What are you wearing when you feel your most powerful?
- We mentioned The Neverending Story
- Dr. Martens – the badass shoe of choice!
- Ship It by Britta Lundin
- Sex Education Season 2 – We highly recommend the show in general!
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer (tv show)
- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (tv show)
- Throne of Glass tv show? Yes!
- ACOTAR movie? Also, yes!
