Fantastic bookish podcast!

One of my absolute favourite bookish podcasts. I love both the content and format of the show as well as the rapport between Kaytee, Meredith and Mindy. I look forward to the eps dropping every week and this show continues to be one of my best book recommendations sources!

For all the book lovers

I cannot get enough of Meredith and Kaytee, this is one for all the bookish people out there. Get ready for your TBR to explode. I really appreciate the variety on the show. Don't be surprised if you start to talk to people about Meredith and Kaytee as if they are people you know in real life that recommend books to you, maybe that's just me.
