I'm Appearing On My Favorite Podcast Today!

Today is a super exciting day for me! I'm appearing as a guest on one of my favorite podcasts! (Ahhh!) It's Sarah's Bookshelves Live, and you can listen to it here.

I LOVE Sarah's podcast (I subscribe to it, support it on Patreon, and listen to every episode), because she gives amazing book recommendations, is very real/relatable, and isn't afraid to be snarky about a book. If she hated it, she will tell you! I love that.

So I was THRILLED to record with her a few weeks back, and the episode just came out today! We talked about getting out of a Coronavirus reading rut, rediscovering your love of reading after a hiatus (and I share some of these tips for reading more), the amazingness of Ann Patchett, time travel books, the best celebrity memoirs, and we even do some dishing on Anna Wintour and the fashion magazine world! 

And of course, I share what has become the famous tenant of the podcast: two old books I loved, two new books I loved, one book I did not like, and one new release I'm excited for. PLEASE listen to the episode (it's so worth it and there are TONS more book recs!), but if you just want to find out what I named for the superlatives above, they are:

-Two old books I loved: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (my review here) and Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradel

-Two new books I loved: All Adults Here by Emma Straub (my review here) and Open Book by Jessica Simpson (my review here. Note: Sarah and I both think audio is a must for this one! I listened to it via Libro.fm, which is my absolute favorite way to listen to audiobooks, because purchases go to indie bookstores, not Amazon. If you want to try it, you can get THREE audiobooks for the price of one with code ALYSSA or just by clicking here. Enjoy!)

-Book I did not love: The Girl He Used to Know by Tracie Garvis Graves (sorry to the many of you who love that book!)

-New release I'm excited for: The Chiffon Trenches by Andre Leon Talley

If you check out the pod, please let me know what you think. (And big thanks to Sarah for having me. I will chat books with you ANYTIME.) More info on it here. Happy listening!

Hi! You were great on the podcast. I love literary fiction with some time travel as well. Can you recommend any of your faves? Loved 11.22.63
Thanks! Jessie

The big problem in transforming is that we had to translate the phonological. People may not know that we record the podcast in Japanese, translate it to English and then actors play us on the podcast. I'm not actually Wassermann, I'm the actor who plays his vocal sound on the podcast. Regrettably, it's cost prohibitive on a television show. New American Jackets has listened to all of the women’s wish with their settled collection of vests for women
. Having a vest in the clandestine hold onto you all geared up for every skilled determination. Best for all weather circumstances, these vests are equipped to give you style in every season!
