Katie Dunneback/@YoungLibrarian called in with a question about ugly cry books, whether there's ugly cry at the beginning, or at the end. We do our best to answer. (Hint: one of us says she's really cold hearted, while the other disagrees with that assessment). We also talk about DNF books, and when or why we might assign a DNF grade. Then, Sarah shares some email from listeners that is both awesome and adorable – don't miss that.

This podcast is brought to you by New American Library, publisher of Come to Me Quietly—the brand-new New Adult novel from New York Times bestselling sensation A.L. Jackson.
Aleena Moore is haunted by Jared Holt. It’s been six years since she’s seen her brother’s best friend, the self-destructive bad boy she secretly loved in high school. As the years pass, she knows it’s time to move on.
Time to decide between a practical nursing degree and her true dream as an artist. Time to get over Jared and give another guy a chance…
Just when she opens her heart to her friend, Gabe, Aly returns home to find Jared sleeping on her couch. The teenage boy she loved has grown into a man she can’t resist. Covered in tattoos and lost in rage, he’s begging to be saved from his demons—the memories of the day he destroyed his family.
As the two reconnect, their passion is hot enough to torch Aly’s judgment. But can she risk her future for a man who lives on the edge of destruction? Come to Me Quietly is a New Adult novel of one woman’s obsession: a man who’s as passionate as he is elusive—and as tempting as he is trouble. You can find Come to Me Quietly wherever books are sold.
Our music in each episode is provided by Sassy Outwater, who is most excellent. This podcast features a song called “Abhainn A'Nathair” and it’s by Peatbog Faeries from their CD Dust. You can find them at their website, or at iTunes.
