Episode 2: Happy endings in February
To be honest - I AM A BIG ROMANTIC. I love the gestures that make up a relationship, the big milestones and the small fleeting moments. So of course it was only time before I reviewed all my favorite romance novels. But not just that there are some unexpected romantic books at the end as well.

Episode 11: A case for Pakistani authors
This podcast is near and dear to my heart! As a Pakistani and a self proclaimed avid reader I have been remiss in going so long without talking about Pakistani authors so that’s what this podcast episode is about! Pakistani authors that everyone should be aware of! For links to all the books I mentioned go to naina.app/podcast-11!

Episode 8: Controversial reading opinions
Welcome back to the eighth episode in season 1 of the Nano bookcast! Also welcome to the second episode of August! This episode is about controversial opinions related to reading! Since I read so much, I like any other hobbyist, talk about reading a lot too! Please let this bookcast be exhibit A through Z :P So of course I have heard others express opinions on reading and have expressed some myself. So here are the more controversial ones and my opinion on those opinions… Does that make sense?

Episode 7: Book recommendations for the non readers
With this podcast I wanted to go back to my goal and the reason why I started the podcast in the first place. And that was to get people to be inspired to read, and hopefully give them a new book to add to their reading list. What better way of doing that than understanding why people don’t like reading books and dealing with those reasons? For links to all the books I mentioned go to naina.app/podcast-7!
