Happy National Book Lovers Day!!! Wow, so exciting! So tell me, what have you been doing to celebrate Today? Are you re-reading a favorite book? Or maybe you’re reading something that’s been on your TBR for a long time? How about celebrating by making a new book purchase?
I started off Today by listening to some more of my current audiobook read, Afterlife by Marcus Sakey. It’s becoming quite the captivating story and I love the narrator. Her voice is very calming but expressive in all the right places and when her accent comes out it’s endearing. Can’t figure out what her name is, I’ve borrowed the book from Kindle Unlimited and it came with the audible narration. For more info, see the details below:
“The last thing FBI agent Will Brody remembers is the explosion—a thousand shards of glass surfing a lethal shock wave.
He wakes without a scratch.
The building is in ruins. His team is gone. Outside, Chicago is dark. Cars lie abandoned. No planes cross the sky. He’s relieved to spot other people—until he sees they’re carrying machetes.
Welcome to the afterlife.
Claire McCoy stands over the body of Will Brody. As head of an FBI task force, she hasn’t had a decent night’s sleep in weeks. A terrorist has claimed eighteen lives and thrown the nation into panic.
Against this horror, something reckless and beautiful happened. She fell in love…with Will Brody.
But the line between life and death is narrower than any of us suspect—and all that matters to Will and Claire is getting back to each other.
From the author of the million-copy bestselling Brilliance Trilogy comes a mind-bending thriller that explores our most haunting and fundamental question: What if death is just the beginning?”.
I’d also like to read a little more of In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez, as next weekend I’ll need to talk about it at book club. Maybe I’ll even get a few pages of my current Thriller, Mister Tender’s Girl by Carter Wilson read. So many books, so little time! Happy Reading!
