The Re-Read: Michelle's wedding and what we read on our UK trip Better Words

    • Books

We're switching things up for Season 9: Welcome to The Re-Read. In this mini-season, we check in with a selection of past guests to find out what they've been working on. Expect lots of books, some babies and plenty of chat.
This season works a little differently, without book recommendations from us at the start of each episode. But we promise you'll still get plenty of books added to your TBR!
We're kicking things off with a wrap-up of our travels, including some of the wonderful books we read along the way. Plus, a few other bookish adventures.
And, if you'll allow us to be a little self-indulgent, we're sharing all the details of Michelle's Edinburgh elopement. You can see shots from the day here and here.
