We’re back with one of our last episodes of Shelf-Involved (for now). We’re taking a break and will be back in a few months with a new podcast, Hardship & Hemlock: Revisiting the Dear America Series, focusing on a middle grade series that has has a hold on us since age 8. We’re really excited to get into these books and see what has (and has not ) …
 
This week, it’s just Emily! We’re trying something new this week that we’re calling Close Reads. And Emily is talking about one of her favorite books, but not in an effort to get you to read it.

In this episode, we’re looking specifically at books featuring protagonists and love interests that have traditionally been excluded from the romance genre. Of course, they a…
