I love this podcast. I look forward to Monday mornings and hearing what these ladies have been reading! Their “presses” are almost universally great! It’s such a light and fun listen, with great and usually fairly diverse reading options. Especially love Kaytee’s recommendations!

So much fun!

I love this podcast and it’s format. It has made my TBR list uncontrollable! I deducted one star as I am not a big fan of Kaytee’s commentary on all things “non-books”. I appreciate that we all have opinions, but I feel she goes overboard at times and it is a turnoff. Stick to books and you’ll do just fine.

Favourite podcast!

One of the best bookish podcasts out there. I enjoy all the hosts - they each bring something different and fun to the show. I love that Kaytee’s reading includes a lot of #ownvoices books.
