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. 71 | Chronic Illness and Mental Health

For August, Kendra, Sachi, and special guest Joce discuss books about chronic illness and mental health. You can find the complete show notes and the transcript for this episode over on our website.

Check out our Patreon page to learn more about our book club and other Patreon-exclusive goodies. Follow along over on Instagram, join the discussion in our Goodreads group, and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for more new books and extra book reviews!
