Feels Like A Blast To The Past

In the years of 2012, 2013, and so on... There was some very special corners of the YouTube-verse. One of them being a community of people talking about books, known as BookTube. I was in high school and a big book reader myself (but a slow one), I discovered videos of people talking about books, hauling books, hearing them say what they were excited to read and what they couldn’t stand. I had a ton of favorite BookTubers back then, but one of my favorite sub-groups within the group was Ariel and Raeleen’s. I was lucky to participate in their world via comments and likes at the height of BookTube’s popularity. While it is still possible, the community is just not the same. The people have changed (people I don’t know, have never seen before) and I have changed (taste growing, changing, where BookTube has always been stuck in YA Literature). When I first started listening to this podcast, I did not know what the format was going to be like nor how their friendship now was (or even if they had one at all)... I keep up with Ariel’s videos sometimes, but I knew PadfootandProngs07 had retired. However, I’m so happy and lucky to be listening to this podcast. It is a true blast from the past. Raeleen and Ariel have captured the way it felt back then, online, talking about books in my formative years. I absolutely love it. From “mashed potatoe books” to Ariel’s ways of making the podcast longer when she know she hasn’t been reading, this podcast is an absolute treat. Five stars! Awesome!

Just What I Needed

I love books! I love book clubs, discussions, photos, reviews. I just love books. This is exactly what my bookish life has been missing. I find it to be so fun, informative and joyful to listen to. I’ve already added so many books to my Goodreads TBR thanks to Books Unbound, and have enjoyed listening to some of my faves being discussed!

SO GOOD

it’s so comforting to listen to and I love the way the 2 hosts speak and explain why they love the books. My favorite is when Ariel does a side story 😂😂😂 always interesting and exciting. Also I love the mash potatoes 🥔 .

A cozy, conversational podcast ♥️

What can I say besides the fact that I adore this podcast. This is my first literary podcast, and I absolutely love Ariel and Raeleen’s banter, the structure of their podcast, and the recommendations they give. Their passion for novels mixed with this cozy atmosphere they provide is the perfect thing to listen to on drives to work, during breakfast, and any other time of day. I’m so proud of all they’ve accomplished with this podcast. Xx Olivia

A great book podcast!

I’m probably a little biased as one of the hosts is a friend and former coworker, but this is a delightful bookish podcast. The hosts are fantastic, the discussion is interesting and the recommendations are intriguing. If you enjoy books, give it a listen!

If you really like books and you like people who really like, this is for you

Ariel and Raeleen are such wonderful and genuine women discussing books they are currently reading/ recently read and recently bought. They give such thoughtful and specific book recommendations and are just a joy to listen to. Watch out for your wallet though! They have already convinced me to buy four books! Can’t wait to listen to more!

Yes!

I love watching Ariel on YouTube, but I love her pod even more. Her enthusiasm comes through so beautifully on this pod—it’s as if I was craving this without even realizing it.
