The Only Way is Reading podcast is back for a second series! After the huge success of series one and our one-off episodes to celebrate poetryyoung adult fiction and LGBT+ History Month, Beth and Freya are back for more! Series two will run throughout the summer, with each monthly episode focussing on a different genre. As always, we’ll be bringing you great book recommendations and interest stories with a library twist. We’ll also be interviewing bestselling authors that you’ll be able to see in person at the upcoming Essex Book Festival 

 

Episode one airs today just in time for the Easter weekend. We’re falling in love with romance and chick-lit fiction and discussing why we love the themes and characters within the genre. We’re also reviewing The Shelf by Helly Acton and Chasing Daisy by Paige Toon so tune in now. 

 

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to find out what genre we’ll be reading next and let us know your favourite romance and chick-lit reads.
