Funny, Frank and Functional!

This is such a great podcast for when I just need to keep my mind that little bit busy without thinking too much. It’s so nice to hear other people’s interest in books, reading snacks, and other little things - turns out there are so many other people like me, yay! I’ve found my tribe!

Fun and Relaxed

Funny, relevant, and chill. Always great for adding books to my TBR list, even though I may not ever have time to read them!

It’s like a hug

I love this podcast. My Gran was a librarian and we used to too books all the time. After she passed, I had a big book shaped hole in my life. Listening to Brea and Mallory talk all things books across all genres is like a huge hug from my Gran. I have spent a lot of time trying to work out my wheelhouse, I guess fantasy, mystery and bios, but will read everything.
