About STP

Sisterhood of the Traveling Paperbacks is a long-distance book club in podcast form.

Every fortnight, online besties and all-around lady nerds Chelsea, Claire and Kay get together to discuss a piece of genre fiction in All The Details, and give updates on current reads and recent projects.

What is the show like?

When picking future reads, our guiding principle is that we want to read things that make us happy. From comics to romance, through science-fiction, young adult, crime or fantasy – pretty much anything that can be classed as genre fiction goes, as long as it’s something we can gush about.

We always aim to be critical readers but we want this show to be a space for positivity and celebrating fiction that gets things right. No book is perfect, but there are some damn good ones, and we want to be reading them.

To hear more about our plans for the show & outlook on what we want to read, check out our introductory episode:


  • We support diverse books & own voices narratives.
  • We are vocal, intersectional feminists.
  • We use swears.

If those things don’t sound good to you, this is is probably not the podcast for you.
