✨ Sarah’s Bookshelves Live Permanently Booked at the Top of My Podcast List ✨

5-star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ listening enjoyment of all things books 📚 is delivered bi-weekly by the charming and book savvy Sarah with a side of snarkiness to keep you on your toes.

I discovered her podcast during the pandemic and have been listening to all of her current and back episodes. I even became a Patron of the Podcast I’ve enjoyed it that much.

I love her reading lists with co-hosts and such a terrific plethora of books 📚 she brings to her audience. I love her informative episodes with authors or book industry/publishing insiders.

Her voice has a nice tone to it and makes listening to multiple episodes enjoyable.

I’ll listen 🎧 a lot during my morning drives to Starbucks or when I have to do the dreaded laundry 🧺 and it’s such an enjoyable use of my time that whatever I’m working on just zooms by and I feel like I’ve gained great book knowledge after each episode.

Do yourself a favor and get this podcast booked on your subscription lists. Sarah is a true fan of books and never shys away from speaking her truth about what she does or doesn’t love with any book 📖 she’s reading. She may DNF a few books throughout the year, but you’ll never want to DNL (do not listen) this podcast. It’s simply great.

Simply a 5-star book podcast and oh her show notes 📝 at the end of each episode are EXCELLENT for you to go back and reference the multitudes of books or websites or articles mentioned during every episode. All podcasts should take notes like Sarah does for her audience.

Check it out and become a patron!!

Happy reading and listening y’all!!

Best book podcast!

Sarah does amazing interviews with authors and others in the publishing world. She brings new perspectives and behind the scenes info that i would never find myself. Her voice is a delight, especially the rhythm. One of my favorite bookish podcasts that i never tire of listening to.
