This week Maggie and Harmony do the Never Have I Ever book tag which we found on Zezee With Books and which was created by Madame Writer/Anne With a Book (though it looks like the blogs have been deactivated!).

Editor's Note: A moment that was cut from the episode involves Maggie promising Harmony that they will one day read Charlotte's Web on the podcast. I'm promising here in writing that this will happen. You can hold me to it.  What We're Reading: A Master of Djinn by P.
