Love YA Like Crazy


Welcome to Love YA Like Crazy, where Carrie and Jake rant about young adult books. Beware, there are lots of spoilers and often lots of swearing!

Jun 9, 2016

For this special bonus episode, Carrie and Jake are joined by Carrie's friend Sara to discuss the severely mediocre 2014 young adult movie 'Vampire Academy'.

Carrie's cat Shooby also has a brief cameo, in which he graphically expresses his opinion of the movie.

We talk about human cafetoriums, Carrie records an ASMR video for vampire victims, we warn about the dangers of flaming hounds, and at the end we recommend some actually good vampire-related media. We also talk about Vampire Academy's plot almost as much as its characters do, so, if you are concerned about spoilers, watch the movie before listening! (Or, alternatively, you can just watch the best scene in the movie.)

In the next episode, we'll revisit Philip Pullman's excellent 'His Dark Materials' series by reading book 2 in that series, 'The Subtle Knife'.

Thanks to Shaenon K. Garrity for designing the Love YA Like Crazy icon, to the Sentimental Favorites for the use of their song 'Hey There', and to Charlie McCarron for the 'Love YA Like Crazy' tag. This episode includes Jake's song 'Life Just Sucks', which he wrote in the run-up to watching this movie. If you want, you can listen to or download it on his soundcloud page.
