001: YA Books We Think Will Be Classics

Well, well, well! Here we are, on our official launch date for A Novel Chat. Willa, Emily, and I are incredibly excited for you to finally listen to our first episode of our literary podcast. After months of planning, hundreds of texts exchange, and a lot of hours trying to figure out the tech, we’ve made it to this day!

In this inaugural episode, Willa, Emily, and I dive into their first book of the month: Harry Potter! Inspired by its classic potential, we dive into a discussion about what makes a book classic-worthy, and then discuss some of the books we believe will eventually become classics.

Warning: insightful conversation and hilarious musings ahead.

Thanks for tuning in! You’ll see links to where else you can listen to this podcast and also a summary of the podcast itself as we get that information verified by the various podcast hosts.

We’re so excited you’re here with us, and listening along! We worked so hard, and we know we’ll only improve as time goes on. Make sure to leave us some feedback- we’d love to hear your thoughts via email or Twitter.

Update: The podcast directory gods have been in our favor today, and A Novel Chat has been approved in a few places! You can find it on iTunes here, or simply by searching ‘A Novel Chat’ in the Podcasts app (it’s already downloaded for you- like magic!).

You can also listen in via Soundcloud here on the Interwebz, or via the Soundcloud app!



  1. Congrats on your first podcast! I’m hoping to get a smart phone soon, which will really help me out with listening to your podcast. It should make walking on the treadmill at the gym MUCH more fun. 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your first podcast! I loved listening to all of your thoughts on what would be considered classics in the future. I would agree that Harry Potter and The Hunger Games could possibly become classics in the future, and I think a “classic” is just a book that has some substantial value, and is elevated in some way? I’m not sure if all the classics now were popular back then, but if a book is carried through many generations (like Harry Potter has been) it could very well be a classic. Looking forward to more chats 🙂
