Hey there, it’s your book-buddy Cory!
I’ve been having a great reading week. I finished The Collective by Alison Gaylin. It’s such a good thriller. It’s about a group of women whose children have been murdered. Worse, the killers were all exonerated. The mothers do not accept this and are taking the law into their own hands.
I’m still working on Triggers. Still not excited to read it, so it’s going very slowly. I’m so tempted to DNF it, but I only have a handful of pages left, so I’m going to bite the bullet and finish it.
I let my daughter Kayla choose my current read. She chose 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz. It’s been a long time since I have read a Koontz book. At one time, I was obsessed with him and have read most of his older books.
I’m also starting Velvet was the Night this week. This is our buddy-read, which you are more than welcome to join. We’re reading the first half of the book this week.
As always, please don’t forget to show your love by liking this email and leaving a comment. I’m excited to hear from you!
