Sick of feeling guilty about the books you should be reading, but aren’t? Annoyed that the books you read don’t seem to “count” as literature? Join author and journalist Caroline O’Donoghue as she discovers the chick-lit classics her guests were raised on, from schmaltzy romances to family comedies to bodice-ripping dramas. We talk to authors, fans and cultural critics about what makes chick-lit tick, and investigate why it’s so often overlooked.

Chick Lit & Swearing: Best Book Podcast ever

I tend to shy away from book podcasts because they can be ever-so lovely and literary and up their own...something. I absolutely loved both episodes published so far—witty and frank and a pleasure to listen to.

Like chatting with my friends

I love Sentimental Garbage. It’s like settling down with my friends to discuss all the books we loved but were instructed not to love by boys who pretended they’d rather read Ulysses. For me, the authors I loved but felt I shouldn’t for some ridiculous reason were Jilly Cooper and Sarra Manning - please chat about them! Also, Caroline has a wonderful voice to listen to - which makes ALL the difference on a podcast.

At last!

This podcast is SUCH a great idea, and so well done. I loved the first episode and bonus episode. I hadn’t actually read The Lost Art and it was a treat. Lovely to hear Eva Rice look back at writing the book. I’m going to have to read everything she’s ever published now!

I’m doing a frantic re-read of Watermelon ready for hearing the new episode and may have to stay up all night to finish it.
