Episode 20 - brackets, crime, horror

This week Mary breaks down the YA/Childrens category of Lamba Literary Awards. Turns out using brackets and turning it into a tournament didn't make it any easier to judge books against each other. Will she be driven to tears as she has to chose between many fantastic titles? Plus two great novels with secondary lesbian characters, and the winner of last week's contest revealed.

Also below is the my final bracket for my Lammy Madness experiment. If you want to hear my meandering to a champion, all my explanations are in the podcast.

Congrats to Casey the Canadian Lesbrarian who won my book giveaway by recommending DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR by Alison Bechdel as a good book to discuss with new friends.
