Rachel's pretty stoked about Sam's selections for today, we're talking Fleabag (2016) season one, highly recommended by Rachel herself - but that's not to say your life's a mess (don't worry).

Jenna has just finished up at the Auckland Writer's Festival, and is still digesting it all, so today she's reviewing Ruby Porter's Attraction, which was launched on Saturday. Attraction tells the story of a road trip through Aotearoa, the significance of the land we live on and colonial history, and the shifting of relationships in the narrators life. As this story weaves through past, and present, Jenna reckons this is one very relatable novel that you don't wanna miss out on.
