Shelf Love: Romance Novels Unpacked with Love

By Andrea Martucci

Thought provoking, critical discussions about literature's most polarizing genre. Shelf Love is a podcast that lovingly digs deeper beneath the surface of the romance genre into the id, ego, and super ego of romance readers and writers, one romance at a time. Host Andrea Martucci is joined by romance experts like authors, critics, academics, and readers. We have fun taking romance novels seriously.
