Welcome back listeners to this mini episode of BLB that will help ease us all back into some regular programming. For those keeping a sharp eye out, our last episode was released way back in March of this year, Episode 20: Fiction & Flora. There’s been a lot of change in the air, but we are excited to be back and bringing you some new bookish content!
This summer we recommended library books to each other without saying too much as to what it was about. In today’s mini episode, we discuss both books (as per usual, spoilers ahead), while also demonstrating that sometimes the books you crave in the moment will just fall into your lap. First, we chat about Heartstopper: Volume One by Alice Oseman, an ongoing graphic novel series about identity, friendship, and a whole lot of love. Next, we chat about Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, which we both listened to on audiobook. Neither of us knew what to expect but are glad we gave this memoir-style book a try, as it dives deep into big friendships in a way we haven’t properly considered before.
Be sure to tune in until the end of this mini episode to hear what Episode 22 will be about! Want a hint? It involves worms.
Come find us on Instagram @biglittlebookspod or email us at email@example.com with any questions or stuff you think we should talk about in our upcoming episodes. Big thank you, as always, for tuning in!
