The three best friends that anyone could have!

And by three, I am including myself. I vibe with these two so much that I literally interject myself into their conversations to agree with what their saying… even though no one can hear me. Does that make me feel crazy? Yes. Would I have it any other way? No.

They talk about books pretty in depth, so unless you are a tried and true book reader who has kept up pretty well with their favorites, you may be in for spoilers. They have a pretty great list of book recommendations, so if they say it’s good… read it.

This podcast is about smut, fandoms, and dragons, get on board or get out of the way.

Bookish Besties

I feel like I’m in a conversation with my best friends about our favorite books. The banter is hilarious. If your like fantasy books and bookish banter I would highly recommend!

Love this podcast!

This is the first podcast where I actually enjoy the co-hosts more off-script dialogue! The banter is hilarious, and it feels like a conversation I’d have with my book besties (if any of them actually read Hades 🌶).
