Our favorite books of summer
Our summer season has come to an end and in today’s episode we’re taking a look back to discuss our favorite episodes and our best non-podcast reads of the season. We also took this opportunity to chat about some of the books we both read, including a few big buzzy releases. You know we love reflecting on our reading lives, so these episodes are always some of our favorites. We hope you enjoy this look back and find a few new books to add to your reading list!
