Miss Hufflepuff ,

Makes a painful commute a pleasure

I have adored every episode. Jen chats about books and writing with such passion and insight - and the guest have all been fabulous. The only downside is that there isn’t more of it :)

quietturbulence ,

Fantastic!

Everything that Jen produces is magical. From her YouTube channel, to her books... and this podcast is no exception. I was so happy to see it’s now available on iTunes that I had to go back and listen to some of my favourite episodes (Deborah Smith’s and Max Porter’s) but they are all delightful nonetheless.

A must listen for any book lover!

Good game but broken ,

Magic!

I have so far listened to the first eleven episodes, and every one of them has been absolutely glorious! But if you listen to episode six, Max Porter will tell you something that totally made me gasp when I was listening to the episode out walking on the beach!
