#Thriller

Confusing at times, but never dull. Three FBI newbies get involved in a hunt for a bioterrorist who has created a new strain of anthrax. The bioterrorist's motives aren't really clear until near the end, and the finale is a bit jumbled, but overall it's a solid thriller. 3 💥💥💥 1/2 out of 5.

This book rotates narration between a mother and her psychopathic young daughter. I couldn't put this one down! The ending was predictable but the rest of the book was a well written thrill ride!
Overall Score 4.0/5.0

Went to Half Price Books today with my lovely love, @TheBookAddict and we got quite a #bookhaul

Admittedly, it was all about horror for me. Ended up with a ton of Koontz, courtesy of my wife.

The first in the Special Agent Pendergast series and it starts with a bang. I loved all if the characters and I love the story. A series of mysterious deaths in a museum does it get any better.

I set my book down for a minute. And when I tried to take it back... I got denied. Everytime I reach for it she wacks my hand away! 😸😹 #noreadingforyou #catsoflitsy #sillycat

I discovered Audible and am now an avid listener on my daily commute. Also I joined NetGalley which in turn caused me to embrace a Kindle, something I never thought I would do. I still buy paperbacks though and read constantly so just the formats have altered slightly.

Chrissyreadit My reading has increased close to pre illness amount, and I feel like I have a community. I missed talking about books and being around people who love books. I tried several times to start a book group with no luck. And was not invited to join any local ones (which was ok- very different taste in reading).Litsy filled the gap. 10h
saguarosally I had started reading more at first. Now oddly enough I‘m reading way less than I did before Litsy. I tried swaps but then I went to a life on the road. So really I just read less now. 😳 10h
Jhullie @Chrissyreadit me too. None of the (very few) local book clubs were my thing and I have found my kindred spirits on Litsy. 10h

Jhullie @saguarosally I tried some swaps too must after spending an inordinate amount of time and money on an international swap it went missing from her front porch which soured it for me. A life on the road sounds amazing, so tell me more. 10h
saguarosally @Jhullie I took up a career where I‘m on the road pretty much all the time. So I go out when I can and take pictures of things, it‘s great fun. 10h
Megabooks @saguarosally @Jhullie I‘m not a fan of swaps either. I found the whole thing too stressful. I‘m glad other people enjoy it, though! 9h
Princess-Kingofkings I've been willing and enjoyed reading other genres. I had never listened to an audiobook before joining Litsy. I've also felt free to quit reading a book I didn't enjoy and just move on. 9h
Chrissyreadit @Jhullie @Megabooks I‘m so bummed your experiences with swaps burned you out. I‘ve had two bad experiences, but I have had mostly good ones. I enjoyed it enough I‘m planning on organizing my second one this summer. I totally get it‘s not for everyone- I‘m bummed because I feel more connected by having done them, and it stinks that not every experience is good. 9h
Megabooks @Chrissyreadit I feel like to make the swap as special as I‘d want it to be, I‘d have to spend more money than I have. I know there are ways to get around this, but 🤷🏻‍♀️. Plus I tend to read more ebooks and digital audiobooks than physical copies, so that‘s probably the biggest reason right now. 9h
Chrissyreadit @Megabooks you make sense- I‘m happy with everyone on Litsy, I‘m just bummed that swaps have been bad for people too. I have gotten into ebooks with Litsy because I‘m reading more in short bursts. Do you find it hard to remember what a book is about? I‘m struggling that I can‘t flip an ebook and read the back cover..... 9h
Jerdencon Net galley, ok swaps,postal book clubs - and definitely reading much more than I did before 9h

Started this three hours ago. Already finished. I did sort of have a feeling about where it was going, but the path it took to get there was SO twisty and great. Definitely a winner. #thenightbefore #wendywalker
