Newborn mom ,

Have I found my people?

I haven’t listened to a podcast in ages but this year I’ve become addicted to Ellen - and Ellen’s mom Julie. First of all I love love love reading romance but finding people to chat with me about it, not so easy. It’s almost more fun than reading a and I find myself sitting in my car to finish listening and laughing along.

I adore their realistic and sometimes chuckle at all of our mutually cringe-worthy romance moments. Their banter makes me think about what my mom and I might talk about if we read romance books together...could we do it? Honestly maybe they’ve given me hope. They sound like they love each other, they know their stuff, and they have a lot of fun. I’m addicted and I’ve been listening to their whole backlog and adding to my TBR list so I can listen to it even more!

Nothing but Love for Ellen and Mom

I absolutely adore this podcast. Listening to Ellen and Mom chat about their book of the week amid inside jokes and references to other family members is a delight.
Highlights include discussion on a book’s “swooniest moment,” not to be confused with the “steamiest moment,” which is identified as well, and relatable asides about the awkwardness of listening to a particularly steamy audiobook while road-tripping with one’s brother/son in the backseat. Episodes also have letters/recordings from other listeners giving their opinions of the books, and…shoot, why haven’t I done that yet?
Whether you’re listening for fun, thoughtful conversation about a book you’ve read or checking in for ideas on what to read next, NYM’s is a must-subscribe for any Romance fan.

Look forward to this every week!

I discovered this podcast after desperately looking for someone to talk about the Winston Brothers books with me (I’ve since convinced my sister and my mother to read them). I totally love it and will listen even if I haven’t read the book. Ellen and Mom have a great relationship and they are both so warm and funny. They’ve also built such a great community of listeners and I’ve found so many great new books and authors through this podcast.
