    I loved this podcast with all of my heart. Listening to you talk about all the upcoming book happiness totally got me excited for so many novels. I would tell you to officially add ‘Iron Gold’ by Pierce Brown to your list (for August) but you should probably (definitely) read ‘Red Rising’ first to appreciate it. So go do that!

    Loved the montage you put together with music near the beginning, it was so fun to hear a compilation of moments over the last few years. When you did the one with the continuous statements about loving books and fandoms and what not, it seriously gave me chills. Like a super happy, cup overfloweth fan moment. Because that is exactly why I listen to you guys. To have a shared happy or fangirl moment about bookish everything.

    Thanks for sticking with it and here’s to another 50 episodes!!!

      Thank you so much, Tracy <3 For your kind words and your support! And yes, Red Rising is on my list, haha.
      Long may the fangirling continue! 🙂
