Relaxing, Relevant, Real!

You have got to hear these two, in-sync ladies go in depth with these books! As an adult, it’s sometimes hard to read for leisure, but this podcast gives you a reason. With Lana and Sam, you’re not reading alone! They are some real characters and you will be hooked after you hear them!

Your Fav Book Club OTG

SWR is one of my favorite podcasts! Alana and Samra are not only well read, but they’re super entertaining as well! Every episode feels like I’m sitting down to chat with friends about my latest read. I love how real the conversations are and I’m always left with something to think about. A book club on the go? What more could you ask for?!
