On today’s Geek Girl Riot the ladies reign supreme: We talk Ralph Breaks the Internet’s mega princess bonanza. We also chat to the queen of YA, Nicola Yoon, then proclaim She Did It! about the legendary Mary Shelley & Jane Yolen.

Whachudoin’? with Nicola Yoon
We had so much fun talking with Nicola Yoon we’re throwing it back to her fantastic Whachudoin’? episode. The YA author chats to Sherin and Sam about her upcoming third novel, what books and movies she’s loving, and the film adaptation of Everything, Everything. They also talk about representation, the link between science and art, and how Nicola began writing so her daughter could see herself
in a book.

Kat & Cub & Papa Bear Break the Internet!
Our cutest trio Kat & Cub & Papa Bear drop by to share their love of Ralph Breaks the Internet. Catch them teasing some of the movie’s many Easter eggs and find out why breaking the internet never sounded so awesome.

“The Physics of Love”
by Kim In-yook (sook)

The size of an object is not proportional to its mass
That girl, as small as a violet
That girl, drifting in the sky like the petals of a flower
Pulls me to her with a force greater than the Earth
In a single moment
I fell and rolled towards her, without reason
Like Newton’s apple
With a thump
With a thump-thump
My heart bounced from the heavens to the earth
In a dizzying motion, like a pendulum
It was the moment I first fell in love
