Podcast Episode 79: Circling Back to Winter 2021 Preview Books (with @gilmoreguide)

Winter 2021 Book Preview

Welcome to the first Winter 2021 Circle Back Episode with Catherine of Gilmore Guide to Books!

In the Winter 2021 Book Preview (Ep. 73), Catherine and I shared our most anticipated books coming out January – March 2021. But, we often haven’t read the books we share in the Preview Episodes.

So, in this new series, we will “circle back” to update you on all the books we presented in the previous season’s Book Preview now that we’ve at least attempted to read them.

    I’m not sure I left a comment before, but I want to tell you how much I loved this episode. What a good idea to circle back to fics you were looking forward to reading and giving us the deets on what you thought of them.

    LOVE these circling back episodes! I missed what you rated The Babysitter. I know you said you didn’t love it, but just curious. Please keep doing these as I love making notes back to the original episode.
