Ep 201: Our Desert Island Picks

On this episode of Buzzing about Romance we’re diving deep into our literary treasure troves as we explore the tantalizing topic of “Desert Island Reads.”  

Picture yourself stranded on a sun-kissed shore, waves gently lapping at your feet, with only five cherished books to keep you company. Which tales would you choose to whisk you away to distant lands, ignite your imagination, and warm your heart time and time again?  

Discussion Points:  

  • Is it your favorite trope 
  • Re-readability  
  • What is it about the book that makes it your favorite  
  • Does it provide an escape
