Introducing The Book Nerd Podcast

by | Behind the Scenes, Mystery Novel Nerd Podcast

Hello, Book Lovers!


I’ve never been the type of reader who will solely read a single genre of fiction. I’m a little eclectic when it comes to reading.


How bad am I?


Basically, if the cover pulls me into the story, then I’ll read it. I guess you can say I’m a bibliophile. And that’s why I created this podcast. For those of you who are just like me who are bibliophile’s that will read anything that’s page-turning.


What is The Book Nerd Podcast?

The Book Nerd Podcast is a virtual book club that comes out every second Sunday. Each episode will be a maximum of 20 minutes Long. I wanted to make each show short and be respectful of your time because I get it, you’re busy and may not have a spare hour to listen to a podcast. This podcast is a relaunch of one of my older podcast, Thriller Novel Nerd that pod-faded at the beginning of 2020, after episode six. To be honest, I felt constrained by the name of the podcast, and the lockdown happened. Since then, I’ve had a rethink about what I want to achieve, and I figured out how to work from home with my husband, manage my writing and podcasting.


So, What’s Different About This Version of the Podcast?

The main difference between the Book Nerd and Thriller Novel Nerd is I’ve ditched the video episodes, along with recording stereo. These changes should fix the sound issues. And, I’m now recording in seasons. Each season of the podcast will have thirteen episodes scheduled to go live every two weeks. Fingers crossed this will help me to achieve a better writing and podcasting balance.


Who Will Enjoy This Podcast?

As suggested by the title, this podcast is for writers and readers passionate about the Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense genres. If you love discussing what makes a good thriller novel or are just looking for your next read, then this podcast is for you.


What Can You Expect From This Podcast?

I want every episode of this podcast to feel like a chat about a great fiction novel over a cup of tea. In essence, it’s a virtual book club. Just in case you’re wondering, you won’t hear me slurping away at a cup of tea. I promise to hit the mute button. As a guide, here is a shortlist of the types of content that you can expect from the show:


  • Book Hauls (with links to the books and blog post for these episodes)
  • An honest review of the books that I’m currently reading with no sponsored book reviews.
  • Interviews with Authors who write in the Thriller, Mystery, Suspense, and Crime Genres
  • The occasional rant about what I don’t like in a book
  • Book versus movie or show mini-series
  • The occasional piece of bookish news


Why Did I Create This Podcast?

I started this podcast because I wanted to create a place where I could discuss what makes a great mystery novel and discuss my latest reads with other fans of the mystery, thriller, or suspense genres. And, in essence, I want to find and connect with people who are just like me. Now that I’ve said that, I’ve created a Facebook group around this podcast where we can continue the discussion after and between episodes. It’s called The Book Nerd Reader Club, and you can join the group by clicking here.
