We’re all about love on the latest Geek Girl Riot, talking Mr. Malcolm’s List, Bridgerton S2 (with spoilers), and romance onscreen & on the page.

Why Romance Novel TV Series Hit Different from Romance Movies
Sherin, Alex, and Renee are big romance readers, watchers, and lovers—and they get into why. They talk about the big tropes in the genre and the differences between romance on the page and on the screen. And what makes them each work (or not). 

Mr. Malcolm’s List
Time to flutter your fans and blush—Mr. Malcolm’s List is the new period romance that’s about to make you swoon. Our honorable ladies Sherin Whimsnicole, Alex Bearmont, and Renee Brownthistle gush over their favorite characters, what they love most, and get you ready to watch it in theaters on Friday. Sherin says, “If you’re ready for more opportunities to watch your romance novels, Mr. Malcolm’s List is a page-turner with cozy chemistry and witty times in the Regency era.”

Bridgerton S2 with Spoilers
Dear listeners, do you hear that sound? ’Tis the Spoiler Siren, signaling the time for gloves to come off and secrets to spill out. Our ladies put all their feelings about Bridgerton S2 on display and—much like the ever-delicious Lady Whistledown—things are about to get scandalous.
