Bonus Episode: Double Booked with @gilmoreguide (A New Podcast Series for Patrons)

Double Booked

Today, we’re bringing you a sneak peek of a new podcast series for patrons! 

Double Booked is a monthly series where a co-host (Catherine of Gilmore Guide to Books and Susie from Novel Visits will alternate months) and I will each share our own book recommendations in the same format as the big show (2 old books we love, 2 new books we love, 1 book we didn’t love, and 1 upcoming release we’re excited about).

Moving forward, these episodes will be available to “Superstars” patrons for $7 / month (join here).

This post contains affiliate links (plus: here’s your Amazon Smile-specific affiliate link), through which I make a small commission when you make a purchase (at no cost to you!).



  • Our ongoing search for the right word to replace “love” when talking about books that deal with really tough topics. 
  • A chance in Catherine’s reading preferences.
  • If there should be a word count limit on book titles.
  • The fiction trend Catherine is sick of.
