    Meet the Bloomsberry

    This episode is a little different, but I hope you enjoy an interview I (Ava) conducted with my friend, Britt; Britt is a force of the bookish industry!

    She's a bookstagrammer (@bibliobrittish), worked social media for an independent bookstore, and currently works for Bloomsbury (aka. Sarah J Maas's publisher). In this episode, Britt takes us behind the curtain, per se, to explore the backend of the bookish industry.

Amazing community!

Ah! Love all the convos and chats with authors- so excited this exists!!!!

Kheya! ,

My favorite podcast

Can’t believe I haven’t reviewed yet bc I’ve been a day 1 listener and this podcast is the best thing ever. I love Ava and Steph, they’re so witty, intelligent, and seem like genuinely great people who care so much about their listeners. Their Patreon is the best money I spend. Not a bad word to say except I want more!!! Also girls, monetize this podcast. You deserve it. Take my money

Went downhill

I struggled with deciding about this review, I’ve been listening since it first started and made it through the ToG re read. When Steph and Ava first started I loved the podcast and looked forward to fan girling every week. At some point this became the Ava show and I do not vibe with her style or personality at all. So 2 stars due to changes and personal preference.
