Jenn and Sharifah are off this week, so please enjoy this When in Romance episode about witch romances and more, with Jess Pryde and Liberty Hardy.
Jess is joined by Book Riot’s resident velocireader, Liberty Hardy, who listens patiently while Jess discusses news and then actually gets the chance to talk when the pair discuss witch romances (with many detours along the way).
