Pretty much my favorite podcast

These ladies are awesome and I love their thoughtful and concise recommendations. A great podcast for people who really want to get to some fantastic book reviews and recommendations, and very little filler content. One of my biggest critiques of other podcasts is that they aren’t well-edited and a lot of time is spent on topics or tangents that have nothing to do with the subject matter of the podcast. I never feel that way about this show, and always enjoy it!

Love it but audio is horrible

I absolutely love this podcast. I’ve gotten such good recommendations from them. However, I knocked off two stars because I cannot believe how bad the audio quality is. One mic is obviously lesser than the other and I’m constantly blasting my volume for one of the hosts and then lowering it for the other. This is a podcast... audio quality is EVERYTHING. Great content but sometimes it’s just too annoying to listen to. Please invest in a better mic

Great listen every week

Thanks to Get Booked, my TBR list has doubled. Even on the occasion my interests don’t align with requesters’, I still love hearing the hosts’ discussions. Get Booked is my favorite of all the Book Riot podcasts.

Better than reviews - recommendations

Simple concept, well executed. Tailored book recommendations based on readers questions. These women obviously love books and enjoy each others company and ideas. I love this podcast

Enjoyable. Would recommend...with a grain of salt.

I quite enjoy listening to Jenn and Amanda talk about books in the mornings as I get ready for my day. When I first began listening to this podcast I listened to a couple of the most recent episodes and enjoyed them so much that I went back and listened to all of their past ones, starting with episode 1 and working my way up. I did have to take a small break around and after election time due to Amanda’s negativity about the outcome of said election. Not that I didn’t agree with some of her opinions, but the content was causing me to start my day feeling bitter, which is never good. I would also sometimes pick up on a sense of hatred towards anyone not a POC, which I have a hard time listening to because it’s reverse racism and is just as wrong as racism itself. However, their most recent episodes have been better, with my TBR constantly growing. This is my favorite BookRiot podcast to listen to, and I recommend it whenever possible.

Greatest gift ever!!! Newly edited.

I see I’ve already reviewed but I want to add that I was the person who asked for the book about White Russians escaping when the Tsar fell. I loved your recommendations and had Lost Roses been out then I’m sure you would have named it. I’m just starting it now. Keep being awesome ladies!!!I love your reviews and I usually just add to my TBR list. But - a few months ago you recommended Vol 1-3 plus Children's Lit of Graphic Cannon.I ordered all four for my son who turns 28 this week. He has two young kids. I can honestly say that I have NEVER gotten him a better gift. He loves it!!!Though he may not come up for air and his wife may do me a harm!! 😉Keep up the good work!!

Love these ladies

I can never forgive Amanda for recommending A Little Life, Lol, nobody should ever recommend sadness and depression, but honestly, I’ve read so much more just listening to them talk about books with such excitement. Amanda and Jenn are freakin awesome! I totally cosign all the other 5 star reviews.

LOVE books AND this podcast

I am an avid reader. This podcast is so enjoyable I actually down load episodes and listen to them multiple times. Amanda and Jenn have such a good chemistry on these podcasts and are great at giving recommendations. They describe books so well, but never spoil. I have created my own TBR per Get Booked Goodreads shelf. Thank you Book Riot for making this podcast available.

Insightful!

Amazing podcast! I would recommend this to anyone interested in books and looking for something to read. I had tried other podcasts about books and nothing was working out. I love this podcast because they recommend multiple books in each episode and give great descriptions/summaries without giving away too much.

How many books do you read?

I am amazed how many books these two ladies read. I think I read like 5 books a year. This podcast inspired me to read more.

Love this podcast!

So much fun and so interesting! You get to hear about books from every possible genre and whether or not the books make it your personal TBR, it's fascinating to hear what other people are reading and why! The podcast is entertainment all on its own in that respect, and I've never had such an interesting line up of books to read!

A binge-worthy podcast

I’m always in need of new book podcasts to listen to, especially when I’m walking the dog first thing in the morning, or after a long day at work. As such, I don’t always want to be learning about the state of world affairs, but rather just listening to people be enthusiastic about something they love. This podcast fills those requirements to a T. It’s fascinating to here what specific sub-genres other people are looking for, and satisfying to here even very specific quests matched to a their perfect book. I’m glad I have a ton of back episodes to listen to, because I’ll be flying through them in the next couple weeks!(Also, as a sometimes independent bookseller, these recommendations are perfect for building up my own mental library of recommendations for customers...)

Love Book Riot

I love All the Books and the Book Riot podcast so so much, but this one is not as good as it could be, in my opinion. Although Jen is very pleasant, Amanda seems a little bitter and angry at times and it makes the show a little heavier than it should be. Both ladies are bright and informative and seem to like each other a lot, but I do wish Amanda would lighten up a little. Sorry, Amanda. I don’t mean to sound unkind.

Excellent way to find new books

This is a great podcast, with engaging and enthusiastic hosts. I’ve added to my TBR list after every episode. And I’ve particularly loved the emphasis on children’s book recommendations.
