It’s been a bit since I have done a round-up of books I have read or podcasts I’ve been listening to so I figured I would share a few of both today. These are 5 books + 5 podcasts I am LOVING right now. If you need something to read or listen to you need to read this post!

5 Books + 5 Podcasts


Fair Play: Reading this has changed my view on marriage and I think ANYONE who is married or in a long-term relationship should read this. If you have ever felt like the division of labor was off or you need to figure out a plan that works better, again read this.

Us, Again: I love a good love story. If you are a fan of Colleen Hoover and Taylor Jenkins Reid you will like this.

Save Me The Plums: If you at all have an interest in the magazine world or food then you will love this. It’s Ruth Reichl’s memoir about her time at Gourmet magazine.

Maybe You Should Talk To Someone: Pretty sure anyone who has ever been to therapy will love this.

Love and Other Words: I will read anything the duo behind Christina Lauren comes out with and this one may be one of my favorites. If you haven’t read any of their books yet you need to!


Crime Junkies: I used to listen to this all the time and somehow stopped. I recently got back into it and have been binging it. The way they tell each story really captivates you. It’s also made me much more paranoid.

Work In Progress: I love Sophia Bush and when I found out she had a podcast I was all in! She has had some truly amazing guests from experts in their fields, other actors, even a CIA agent.

Cultish: If you have any fascination with polygamy you will enjoy this. It’s insane.

Berning In Hell: Super interesting podcasts where influencers and other people in the spotlight talk about rough times in their lives.

Girls Gotta Eat: Not new to most people but another one I have been on a binge of. God they are funny. I wish this had been around when I was single!

      I love reading and have been reading more lately since I don’t have much work right now (or at all). I haven’t read any of these but will add a few to my library list!

      Maybe I have been living in a hole? – all these are new to me. Honestly, most of what I have been reading lately pertains to our family’s two newest pursuits: have read two gerbil care books cover to cover, and working through two books on gardening from seed. LOL!

      Thanks for the podcast recommendations. I have been searching for some new content to listen to to drown out my kids all being at home!

      I have not gotten in to the podcast thing yet, but I sure would love to have new books to read. The book that I am interested in is the one entitled, “Us, Again.” I would like a good love story. I will have to check that one out.

      Now this is really handy. We have much more time on our hands at the moment, so things like this are useful x

      Thanks for the tips – I was starting to look for some new reading material. I’m currently missing the library here in isolation in Melbourne – I still prefer reading from a book over a device. I might join the modern world one day!
