The Story


We are Honey and Diana, two Malaysian gals who really love diving into books of all kinds. Welcome to 2 Book Nerds Talking where we discuss books we love or those hot on the read list. We get to share reading insights, bookish topics, pick the minds of occasional bookworm guests and other general book nerdery. If you love books as much as we do, this is the podcast for you!



Diana Yeong


Diana Yeong practically grew up in community libraries, and this love of reading later led her to found Malaysia’s largest online book club, the KL Book Appreciation Club on Facebook, and pursue a Masters in English Language and Literature. Her reading tastes vary from human interest memoirs, to historical fiction and Asian literature, though speculative fiction is the genre her heart most belongs to.

As a TBNT co-host, she’s finally free to indulge in all the book nerdery she’s always felt the world wasn’t prepared for. She dreams of one day hosting a dinner party with Margaret Atwood, Ted Chiang, Yuval Noah Harari and Haruki Murakami on the guest list.



Honey has been a precocious reader from a young age. She used to enact plays and write little homages to her favourite reads all through her school years. Later she started writing scripts for animation, TV and movies, all thanks to the imagination she gained from reading like a fiend all her life. Books will always be her enduring love.

In fact, she can’t shut up about it hence TBNT which allows her to dissect a book, find out the genesis of ideas and indulge in more book malarkey. A devoted Harukist, she also loves the non-fiction of Jon Krakauer, Jhumpa Lahiri’s shorts and the worlds created by Neil Gaiman.
