Not Just for Romance Lovers

I don’t identify as a romance reader, but this is one of my new favorite podcasts. The conversations, guests, and topics are always engaging and thought-provoking. I especially appreciate the episodes with writers sharing their inspiration and writing processes. This podcast has helped reignite my love of reading for pleasure (and made me realize I like romance more than I thought).

I love deep diving on this podcast

Sarah and her guests always have really interesting conversations on aspects of romance books and romance reading that I had been unaware of previously. It’s funny and fun and informative and just an overall excellent podcast that I look forward to every week!

Best ever!

This was the first romance novel podcast I found- which lead to finding 3 others. This one though will always be my fave! Thank you for doing what you do, especially with the website which makes it super easy to find all these book recs again and add them to your tbr list lol. Love it!!!
