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. 52 | Heart Berries and Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?

For our month about memoirs, we discuss Heart Berries by Terese Marie Mailhot and Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? by Jeanette Winterson.

A special thanks goes to Bombas socks for sponsoring this episode. We love these soft yet durable socks. Head to and use the code READINGWOMEN to get 20% off your first order!
