I don’t know about you guys, but I am a big fan of podcasts! I have many that I listen to weekly, or bi-weekly as they come out, and they span many different genres. There are great ones out there, from bookish ones (of course!), to political, pop culture, and awesome fiction ones! They are a great way to keep up with what’s going on, or just to zone out for a while and pass the time. I thought that I would take some time today to share with you guys a few of my favorite book related podcasts. These are, by no means, in any specific order:
All the Books
Host: Liberty Hardy (and whomever she has on with her at the time)
Schedule: Weekly- Mondays
This is a Book Riot podcast that is generally all about the new releases of the week (although sometimes they’ll discuss books they’re excited about that are “recent” releases). This is a great way to find out what the new and exciting books are that are being released, and Liberty is amazing! She also has All the Backlist every Thursday, where she discusses books within a certain “theme” from her backlist.
No Thanks We’re Booked
Hosts: Katie & Mollie
Schedule: Weekly- Thursdays
This is a great bookish podcast, where Katie and Mollie (online turned IRL friends) discuss the books they’re reading, what’s going on in their lives, some pop culture, etc. They always have a “theme” of the podcast, of course (classics, YA, books to movies, reading slumps, favorite books, etc). They occasionally have guests on with them or have interviews with authors. Honestly, their podcast is like hanging out with some of your best book nerd friends.
Hosts: Andrew & Craig
Schedule: Weekly- Sundays
This podcast is all about backlisted books! Each week either Andrew or Craig reads a new book from their backlist and discusses it on the pod. There are definitely spoilers, but none of these are recent releases, and so far there hasn’t been anything that would keep me from enjoying the books if I chose to read them after listening to the podcast about them. These guys are hilarious! I really look forward to this one every week.
Book Riot- The Podcast
Hosts: Jeff and Rebecca
Schedule: Weekly- Sundays
This Book Riot podcast is a weekly update about anything and everything new and newsworthy in the book world. This includes everything from books themselves to booksellers, authors, the publishing industry, to awards and more. If you want to know what’s going on in the world of books, I highly recommend this one!
Books in the Freezer
Hosts: Stephanie and Rachel
Schedule: Bi-Weekly- Mondays
This pod is strictly dedicated to horror fiction (if you didn’t catch that Friends reference in the title!). They discuss all the horror books from horror lite to graphic horror. This is a great pod, if you enjoy horror reads. These ladies know their stuff!
Hosts: Amanda & Jenn
Schedule: Weekly- Wednesdays
This is another cool Bok Riot podcast. On this one, Amanda and Jenn give personalized book recs based on questions that listeners send in to them. I have gotten some great gift ideas from listening to his pod!
Well, that’s all I have for you guys for now! I hope that you find a pod or two that will interest you in this list. What about you guys? Any great bookish podcasts that you think that I should be tuned in to?!
