In each bi-monthly episode, Sara and her co-host Chelsey discuss one work of classic literature and pair it with more contemporary reads that feature similar themes.
These conversations get a bit nerdy, but listening feels more like hanging out with your bookish besties than sitting through a lecture. We plan each episode to be enjoyable and accessible—whether you've read the classic a million times or never have and never plan to.
On the in-between weeks, Novel Pairings is dedicated to toppling your TBR by sharing themed book lists, anticipated upcoming releases, and our favorite seasonal reads.
Classics Club members get weekly bonus episodes, behind-the-scenes peeks, and input on which books we cover. We also host monthly book clubs so you can discuss classic and contemporary books with other literature lovers and classes to help you read like an English major.
I didn't know that I could look forward to a podcast so much! Chelsey and Sara have created such a fun, inviting and beautiful space focused on classic literature and how to bring it in to the current age in your life. They are English teachers and that comes across so vividly in their conversations ... like my favorite AP English class in high school.
Novel Pairings is like a refreshing book date with your favorite bookish pal. It's always entertaining, informative and forever influencing my TBR pile. As someone who isn't super well read in the classics, they make me want to revisit books I never read and want to re-read ones I have read. If you love reading and books, this is the podcast for you.
