Fun podcast great for aspiring authors and book lovers alike!

This podcast is absolutely lovely! The two women intelligently and honestly discuss their picks, but are so down-to-earth that it feels like you could laugh and joke alongside them. I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys reading and is looking for new books to read, anyone who would like to challenge themselves to read new genres, and to aspiring authors who would like to listen to pleasant discussions about what does and doesn’t work in writing.
