THANK YOU BOOK RIOT TEAM 🥰
First, I love you Lib!🤘🏽 Thank you BR team for helping me add marvelous discoveries to my TBR list. This is THE podcast to listen to if you are a BOOK LOVER just like me. I’m from Latam and I love the variety of selection you share with us all. Long live Book Riot! 💜💜
Awesome recs for books
This podcast opens my eyes to books I normally wouldn’t hear about or find. I love the hosts and how smart and funny and articulate they are. It it a highlight of my week to listen to!
My TBR says thanks!
I’ve gotten great recs from this show. My go to spot when I’m in a book slump.
Love this podcast.
Relevant and entertaining.
An absolute must for readers
Been listening to this podcast for ages and I never miss a week. Always chock full of wonderful books to add to ones tbr list. Even when the book isn’t in ones “wheelhouse” the discussions are still interesting and enjoyable. My only frustration has to be with the incessant use of “trigger warnings”. Everything under the sun is described as a TW and evidence has shown that TW don’t do a thing. Aside from that the hosts are incredible .. the show is the first thing i listen to every Tuesday !! Highly highly recommended
I am absolutely in love with this podcast. The weekly recommendations has resulted in an impressive accumulation of books I want to read. Liberty is hilarious, intellectual and heartwarming. These women are a powerful example of charming, witty, intelligent women that any girl/woman should aspire to be. Thank you for such a wonderful treat for my brain each week!
A must download for readers!
This is one of my favorite podcasts! They recommend books for a wide range of interests and I’ve found some of my most favorite reads and authors through them. The hosts are funny and kind.
Minimalist In Training
You can tell that this podcast takes a lot of work and planning, and it makes for such good reviews. When a book is new, it can be hard to tell if you will like it from a traditional print review or the publisher description. Hearing the personal reviews on this show gives the context I need to know if I will likely love a book or not.
I love this podcast (even if it makes my TBR cry)!
Something for everyone
I enjoy the variety of books they review. I’ve picked up books and read that I would have never considered.

Best Book Recommendations!!
Love this podcast for diverse book recommendations. Liberty & team have never let me down...plus, it’s just fun to listen!
Essential for readers!
I look forward to hearing about the new releases every week & always leave with new additions for my TBR. Liberty’s bookish enthusiasm is infectious!
Long Time Listener
I have loved this podcast for SO long. I regularly daydream about having Liberty’s job. She’s probably one of my all time favorite podcast hosts (which is saying a lot because I’ve listened to a LOT of podcasts since back before smartphones when podcasts had to be downloaded onto an iPod). She’s funny, down to earth, and most importantly, LOVES books and makes me love books even more while I listen. I get so many wonderful book recommendations from this terrific podcast, and I thoroughly enjoy the descriptions of each of the books discussed! Thank you Liberty and all the other hosts (I miss Rebecca!) for all the delightful hours you’ve given me, listening to you chat about books!!
You're gonna need a bigger TBR
This is one of my favorite podcasts. It's the best part of Tuesdays. Only downside is my TBR is growing out of control with so many good reccommendations!
My favorite podcast
I love this podcast. The book recommendations are thoughtful superb and span so many genres. I have found so many favorites through Liberty and company! Love it so much.
Great for my TBR
I really enjoy this podcast and hearing about new books released on that particular day. As a librarian, it keeps me on top of things. I love Liberty and her insight and quirky reviews.
Best book podcast out there
I am a huge book nerd and this podcast helps me every Tuesday sort thru the new books I need to read. Cant recommend enough if you like books
I love lib!
Liberty, you are the best
not another new book podcast
I’ve listened to All the Books for years now and it’s still one of the best bookish podcasts out there! always thoughtful and smart (and super funny), I always recommend this one to folks that are struggling to find new books to read and explore. love you guys!
Liberty is the best!
Love this podcast!
I love lamp!
I love lamp!
Inspires me to read
I love to read, but it is hard to find new, exciting books in the midst of life’s madness. This podcast has exposed me to so many amazing books and authors. The hosts genuine enthusiasm is a joy to listen to. Cannot recommend highly enough.
One of my favorite bookish podcasts!
All the Books is one of my Favorite Bookish podcasts! Love Liberty and the other cohosts! I look forward to the new episodes every week.
Love this podcast!
Liberty is always so enthusiastic about the books, it just makes me smile. I love what she said today about how reading changed her life for the better during a rough childhood. She is so genuinely invested in this podcast, it makes a difference!
Love the silliness and the book recs! Great quality audio, not at all annoying, and helps me feel connected to a community during these times of isolation 💗💗💗
I love this show so much. As soon as I wake up on Tuesdays I turn it on so I can find out about all the new and wonderful books. The hosts are funny and great to listen to!
I am super picky about my book podcasts. I feel like I delete them as fast as I subscribe. But, I absolutely LOVE this podcast! Thank you for being you. Real and not annoying!!!
Sincere thank you from reader
I love the hosts. I love the variety of books recommended. I love the hosts synopsis of their recommended book. I’ve gained a wealth of amazing new authors and new books for a lifetime. Look forward to a new episode every week. Thank you so much for this podcast! ❤️
I get so many recs this way and have been listening for years!
Enjoyable, but some issues
I miss the days of Rebecca being Liberty’s co-host, but I’ve really enjoyed Tirzah and Kelly’s episodes and I understand why it’s difficult to keep one co-host all the time. I saw complaints in other reviews about Liberty’s voice, pace, etc and while I get it, I just find Liberty to be so endearing and enthusiastic that I am able to tune out the fact that she doesn’t use a voice coach or whatever it is that people want from her. I hate quibbling about personal preferences, but I’ve struggled to relate with the co-host Patricia. I love her personality that shines through, but I literally fast forward through the punny singing at the beginning of every backlist episode she does because it grates on me. And she mainly recommends graphic novels and non-fiction that I’m just not interested in so I don’t think I’ve ever picked up a book she has recommended. I, too, wish less plot was revealed in the course of their discussions. A better balance between enthusiasm and mystery would be lovely! And maybe fewer middle grade/YA recommendations as well. I super enjoy this podcast for the most part and have gotten a lot of recommendations from Tirzah and Kelly especially. Glad to have it in my feed!
STOP SPOILING THE BOOKS
I’ve seen a lot of other reviews that say the same as I’m thinking, stop reiterating everything that happens in the book please! I get excited about a recommendation and then Liberty keeps saying “and then... and then...” and by the time she’s done I feel like there’s no point in reading it myself.
This podcast keeps my TBR growing!
I have been listening to this podcast for just over a year now and it is my favorite Book Riot podcast. Liberty is so well read, and we have a similar taste in books (so it seems), so I find this podcast extremely helpful when it comes to picking me next read. I also enjoy both Liberty and Tirzah’s personalities that come through. The only two complaints I have are (1) sometimes too much information is shared about books. A couple times now I have read a book that was covered on the podcast and I finished it thinking: I just wasted time reading this because all of the major bits were covered in the podcast. (2) I am not a fan of the newer host Patricia. She sings a snippet of parody-style songs at the beginning of each of her episodes and it is cringe-worthy. I also don’t find her personality relatable or the content she offers to be overly valuable.
One small request.
I thoroughly enjoy the enthusiasm you have for books and also the wide range of genres you choose. I just have a small request. If you could possibly tell a bit less about the books it’d be helpful. I just purchased one you mentioned today and feel like there’s no reason to read it since you gave away so much of the story. I have another one on order for next week , so when you started talking about it, I turned the volume down so the book won’t be ruined by knowing the story before I even get the book. Other than that , great job.
Explode your library holds list!!
I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and it is always a dose of positivity and joy! Between the host with the most (books), Liberty Hardy, and her rotating second chair guests, there is always at least one recommendation to add to my TBR list on Goodreads. So if you want to hear all about the newest books, Liberty’s cats, and feel happy for 30 min out of the day, subscribe to this gem!! :)
Too Much Information
I love BookRiot so I couldn’t wait to delve into this podcast. However, I do not recommend this podcast for several reasons. The biggest reason is that way too many details are revealed about the books they talk about. It would be best if certain books were summed up in one or two sentences, rather than whole paragraphs. Not only is that annoying but incredibly boring as well. Liberty also needs to work on her “radio voice”. It is very unpleasant to listen to her. The pitch is off and she speaks way too quickly. There were times I wanted to tell her to take a deep breath...
Love this podcast!
I love Tuesday walks listening to this podcast 🥳
Liberty can you please stop going into so much detail? You are telling us the whole book. Stop it!
Team Liberty Needs a Partner
Liberty is this podcast and that’s what makes it amazing. I really wish book riot could find a consistent partner for her to speak with though. I really miss the days with Rebecca as co-host. And although it’s obviously difficult for anyone to keep up with Liberty’s reading schedule, maybe find two or three consistently good people to rotate with. Not a fan of Patricia but many other co-hosts seem up to the task.
All The Books- good content, bad voices
While I enjoy most of the content, Liberty’s voice and constant inflections make the podcast unbearable. I too have a high-pitched voice, however I feel like she doesn’t try to keep it at the same volume or tone. She comes across as immature (language and valley-girlish). For some time I would just fast-forward through her part, but I’m now unsubscribing.
💚liberty and book riot
I love this podcast! Liberty is hilarious. I miss the original Liberty and Rebecca pairing but it’s still great now. It has helped me stay excited about reading and I never go wrong with their recommendations. Book riot has been advocating that you read from a variety of perspectives long before now so if being anti-racist (and anti-other oppressions and intolerances), I think working this into your routine is one great thing to do for that.
I used to love this podcast but it has changed a lot. don’t understand why an adult podcast spends so much time reviewing YA books and middle school books. Please have a separate podcast for that and please review some mainstream literature.
This should be a YA podcast...that’s mostly what type of books are talked about.
Completely liberally biased book selections. No variation whatsoever.
Editing suffers and Cohosts too
What’s up with the constant changing of the cohost guards? It’s hard to digest who listeners get suggestions from. Liberty seems like she’s lost interest in the show and the cohosts are surviving Hunger Games level challenges in order to make the next show. Today’s episode airs entire conversation overlaps wherein it sounds like no one is listening to each other so why should we. I mean come on you have the time right now don’t you?
Like, yeah, ya know, like like like like like
I like the format. I like the discussion. The hosts aren’t horrible but please for the love of all that is good an holy check your language crutches. So many “like” and “ya know” and “yeah”. It is distracting to the point that you want to initiate a drinking game for each of those crutches said just to numb yourself from the experience. And I don’t even drink! I really do want to hear about the content discussed. I like just ya know I don’t like want to ya know hear like all the likes and yeah like all the yeahs and like uh ya know like yeah so like that.
Liberty speaks so quickly and sounds like a Valley Girl. Her presentation style completely takes away from the substance of what she says. She makes the books sound unreadable.
Jakob Marley's Mom
This is a great podcast for staying up to date in the bookish world. I miss the days when Rebecca Schinsky was on every episode with Liberty, but I can imagine that it would be super challenging to read enough books to be on this podcast weekly. Thank goodness we have Liberty!
No business podcasting
I likes your podcast until you said the world might not even be here in the future. We don’t need negativity we need podcasts to list our spirits up. The world is bad enough.
Best of Book Riot
Fun, interesting, and accessible show! Liberty and her cohosts share the new book releases they’re most excited about and include just the right amount of information, without giving too much away. They are also very positive and approachable. Great way to stay in the loop of book releases!
Love this podcast and how much they help me stay up to date on new releases! The only downside to this podcast is that I cannot keep up with all the books. Great hosts, who are excited and interested in books. 📚
