Bad On Paper

Feb 7, 2024

It’s time for one of our favorite episodes of the year, our 2024 reading preview! We chat with Jordyn Walker, Haley Jakobson, Tomi Obebe, Steven Rowley, and Amanda Montell about their most anticipated reads of 2024! We also ask them the very important question: If you could have a meal with any fictional character at any chain restaurant, who are you going with and where are you taking them?
