    Season 2 Wrap & Announcement

    Season 2 Wrap & Announcement

    Welcome to the last episode of Season 2. We had such a wonderful time putting this season together. In this episode, we reflect on the process of recording the season, and talk about our favourite moments.

    After this episode, we will be going on a hiatus, and we‘re not planning on returning for a Season 3 at this stage. We‘re not going away completely though! We will still have opinions on books and mental health reps, so we are planning to continue posting our reviews on our blog. We will also keep our social media active. So keep us in your feeds and hopefully we can come back for Season 3 one day.

Great perspectives and reviews

As trained psychologists, I love the thoughtful opinions of the books that Priscilla and Elise review. Their voices are very therapeutic (kinda wish they were my psychologists!) for the next book review I would like it if you could review Words on Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton - a short but gem of a book that touches on mental health (schizophrenia)
