Nostalgia Book Club: Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce with OWWR Pod

Episode 53

Release Date: August 3, 2022


SPOILER WARNING: This entire episode contains spoilers for Wild Magic, the Immortals Series, The Song of the Lioness Series, and other Tortall books.


Your hosts are joined by Hannah and Laura from On Wednesdays We Read for a Nostalgia Book Club episode (it’s a thing now). They talk about Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce, an extremely foundational Tween Girl Has Secret Magic Powers and Saves the World book (and also there are horses. And wolves). They still love it, but the nostalgia goggles got a little bit busted (upon discovering the absurd age difference between the main character and her love interest. Yikes.) The crew also discusses Pierce’s work overall and how most of it holds up pretty well (except for that age difference. Can’t stress that enough.)
