And now, for your holiday shopping and future reading pleasure, here’s a list of all the books we’ve talked about on the podcast in 2020 — as well as the
Cup of Something Lovely Book Club selections. Happy reading!
Y’all, I LOVE to read. If you follow me on Instagram or listen to the podcast, I always ask my City Girl Talks podcast guests what they’re reading and what their favourite books are. My love of reading also spurred me to start the
Cup of Something Lovely Book Club for the podcast. Books make for a great holiday season gift for yourself or a fellow bookworm
Believe it or not, it’s already time to think about holiday season gift shopping. So, I combed through my episode notes to create
list of the books mentioned in this year’s episodes — that’s 70+ books. Phew! one
Along with the books mentioned in this year, I’ve also included those from 2019. (Because started the podcast in late-2019 and didn’t do a list then — oops!) There’s a broad range from fiction to motivational to just good plain fun. Happy reading and gifting over a cup of something lovely!
