Reading Women

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

Ep. 2.5 | Fangirling Is an Art

Bonus Book Rec Show!!

So how this works is that you, our listeners, send us requests for book recommendations, and we give you our answers. For example, if you have no idea what to get your father-in-law for Christmas or what book to read after Fates and Furies, we’re here for you. And if you want to be featured on a future show, send us a message on the contact page of our website or tweet us @thereadingwomen. If we don’t get to your question on the show, we’ll still respond with our book recommendation.
