A podcast in which we tell you about a book we just finished, and what we thought of it.


“Spinning Silver” by Naomi Novik

Like “Uprooted” before it, “Spinning Silver” is a more modern remix of classic fairy tale and fantasy scenarios. Royal weddings! Ice kings! Just don’t mention Rumpelstiltskin.
