Podcast Episode 122: Doubled Booked with Catherine (September 2022)

double booked book recommendations

Double Booked is a monthly series, available to my Superstars patrons, where a co-host and I 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). In these more candid episodes, I talk more about my own reading, and share tons of books that I don’t share on any other public forum. Catherine of Gilmore Guide to Books and Susie from Novel Visits alternate months co-hosting with me.

  • Catherine brings some books that are “so far under the radar, they’re off the grid.”
  • Sarah has some wide-ranging picks with 4 own-voices stories and genres outside her comfort zone.
  • Plus, both new releases are publishing next week!  So, you won’t have to wait long for them.
