Marama raves about Spotlight and rewatching Star Wars: The Force Awakens (and Amie tells us the greatest Star Wars story ever). Pam has been watching the Critics’ Choice Awards and Meg Cabot’s Proposal.

We also discuss Amie’s many, many books:

– Her fantasy middle-grade trilogy, Elementals, out in 2018
