Podcast Episode #15: Blogaversary Edition

October 30, 2014 Podcast 0


Welcome to the fifteenth episode of the Tea in the Treetops podcast hosted by Philippa and Angelya.

In this episode we do a joint review of Magisterium: The Iron Trial, a new middle grade fantasy by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare. We also do a special joint review of a Mug Cake recipe book. We chat about the language used by Young Adult fandoms, making ourselves feel really old in the process, plus of course, our latest reads and upcoming books.

Edit: Our blogaversary giveaway is now live! You can enter here.

We’d like to apologise for the length of time since the last episode, and also for our slightly unhinged sleep-deprived babble in this episode. Mombies, unite!

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear your feedback – anything you would like us to talk about in particular? Just let us know!

You can listen to past episodes of the podcast, as well as the various ways to subscribe on the main podcast page.

Our title music is titled Sea of Dreams and has been used with the kind permission of the composer, Bart Stoop. You can hear more of Bart’s beautiful music at facebook.com/BartStoop.
