Literary & Book Podcasts #1

At the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I found myself being drawn to podcasts. I listened from paranormal stories, to unsolved murders, to self-help podcasts. Though many of these podcasts were great, I found myself enjoying the book related ones the most. So I decided that every so often, I would share with you a literary and book podcast that I highly enjoy. 

Here's the first one:

Novel Pairings

What's it about? 
Novel Pairings is a podcast hosted by Chelsey and Sarah that is "dedicated to making the classics readable, relevant, and fun." In each episode, Chelsey and Sarah talk about a classic book and then recommend modern books that have similar themes to the classic. 

Why do I like this podcast? 
I've been having a difficult time picking up one of my classic books from my shelves for a few years now. Listening to this podcast encourages me to love the classics again, especially the ones that I've already read. I especially like to listen to their reading lists based on the seasons/holidays. I really like their concept of, "This book goes well with this book." There have been many times that I want to pick up a book that is similar to one I love. Plus, Chelsey and Sarah occasionally give recommendations of other podcasts. Because of them, I have discovered one of my favorite literary podcasts, which I will feature soon. 

If you like the classics and you like book recommendations, I highly recommend you give Novel Pairings a listen to. You can find them on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and any other place where you listen to podcasts.
