Podcast Episode 113: Spring 2022 Circle Back with Catherine (@GilmoreGuide)

Spring 2022 Circle Back Book Reviews


In the Spring 2022 Book PreviewCatherine (Gilmore Guide to Books) and I shared our most anticipated books that released April – May 2022.  In today’s episode, we’re circling back to update you on the books we’ve had a chance to read — or at least attempted.  Given my ongoing success rate with spring releases, I’m starting to wonder if that is just the best season for my type of books!

Introducing Summer Shelves (a companion to my Summer Reading Guide)…

  • In addition to my annual 2022 Summer Reading Guide, I’m introducing Summer Shelves, a companion exclusively for Superstars Patrons ($7/mo).
  • Summer Shelves features BACKLIST summer reading recommendations from over 25 former podcast guests and our team members.
  • The Summer Shelves design is clean, crisp, and unique and is available in a PDF file format via Patreon.
  • If you’d like to get the Summer Shelves companion guide, you can sign up to be a Superstars patron here. You’ll also get access to a monthly bonus podcast series called Double Booked (where Catherine or Susie and I share our own book recommendations in the same format as the big show) and my Rock Your Reading Tracker.
