This week we had the huge pleasure of talking to literary legend Joanne Harris about her latest book, A Narrow Door, which is absolutely brilliant, thrilling and haunting.

I love this!
The only issue with this podcast is that it makes me want to buy all the books that Bethany and Alice mention. The two hosts are engaging and hilarious (and so well read!) It's a fun conversation about books that I very much want to read, and I'm so glad they've started this. I can't wait to hear more!
