Podcast Episode 85: Circling Back to Spring 2021 Preview Books (with @gilmoreguide)

Spring 2021 preview books

In the Spring 2021 Book Preview (Ep. 80), Catherine and I shared our most anticipated books coming out April – May 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.
