Reading the End Bookcast, Ep.45: The CW’s Little Women, Spoilers, and Naomi Novik’s Uprooted

We talk about spoilers, finally! Whiskey Jenny and I have polar opposite views on them, and we get into it on this episode. We also discuss the news that the CW will be producing a gritty dystopian adaptation of Little Women (YAY). Finally, we review Naomi Novik’s novel Uprooted, one of Whiskey Jenny’s first forays into the fantasy genre!

  • ALRIGHT, this comment is definitely on the wrong post because, when it comes to keeping up with podcasts, I am slow as. BUT, you definitely need to get your hands on a copy of Alone on the Ice / David Roberts. It’s about Douglas Mawson,a far superior explorer to Robert Falcon Scott, in my opinion. Either that, or just do some extensive Douglas Mawson googling, you won’t regret it, I promise.
