Graeme Rodaughan | 1913 comments Hi Ginger, if you enjoy this book, and I think you will. I believe you'll love The Suicide Motor Club by Christopher Buehlman
It is set in the same universe.

Ginger | 3239 comments I’m loving this so far! The first person of Joey is addicting to read.

I got to the start of Part 1, Vampire. I don’t have page numbers with this Kindle version.

So far she seems to be!


message 17: by Terry (new)

Terry | 4842 comments Yes, Margaret is badass so far!

I think I'm about 10 pages behind where you are Ginger.


message 18: by Terry (new)

Terry | 4842 comments I'm up to 'The Sweetest Girl in New York' in apart two. With all of the football over the weekend, plus seeing the movie It ch2, not much reading time. (view spoiler)

I just finished up that chapter. It was last night so I get you. Not any time to read today due to football! I knew this would happen. 🤣😂

How was IT Chapter 2 by the way? I want to see it!

I agree with you on the (view spoiler)


message 20: by Terry (new)

Terry | 4842 comments I do have a couple of issues with the movie I would complain about, but overall, good horror movie! Definitely worth seeing. Kept me jumping in my seat for sure.

Hey, good wins for the Seahawks and the Chiefs!

Well, that's good to know on the movie.
Yay to getting some wins! I do think that the Hawks didn't look as good as they should against Cincy. Cincy looked better then I thought and Andy Dalton did well against the secondary.
Hoping for the best but keeping expectations in check! LMAO!


message 22: by Terry (new)

Terry | 4842 comments Good idea! With injuries already piling up after week one, I’m tempering my enthusiasm as well. Its all fun anyway.

Speaking of movies, did you see there is another Stephen King book coming out as a movie in November? It’s Dr. Sleep! And the preview looked good!

Yes! I saw that and can't wait to see the sequel to The Shining!
Have you read Doctor Sleep? It's good and I really liked it! I hope they do a good job with the movie.


message 24: by Terry (new)

Terry | 4842 comments I did read it a few years ago and liked it also. I agree on hoping they do good. The preview was promising.


message 25: by Ginger (new)

Ginger | 3239 comments Just got to the start of Part 2 - The Hessian.

I have no idea where the plot of this is going but I'm loving the vampire dynamics and politics!

Vickie (bookfan4ever) | 684 comments Not as far as you guys. Hope to catch up tomorrow. Definitely a different take on a vampire story, but I'm enjoying it so far.

Ginger | 3239 comments I haven’t been able to read anything today Vickie so you’ll have plenty of time to catch up!

I loved the whole Studio 54 chapter! I agree Vickie, I’m really enjoying this told in first person with Joey!

Ginger | 3239 comments Vickie, I feel the same. Mind blown and I stayed up until 11pm last night finishing this book.

That ending! Wow! (view spoiler)

What a great new take on vampires. I really loved this one! Terry and Vickie, thanks for doing a BR with me on this!

Vickie (bookfan4ever) | 684 comments Thanks Ginger for the BR suggestion. I thoroughly enjoyed reading with you and Terry, it's always a good time!🥰

Yes, those kids were very creepy, 'shudder'! And likewise, I'm very interested in reading more by Buehlman. 👍

You’re definitely right. The warning was there, but my reaction seems to be much the same as your first reaction, in a mild sense I guess.


message 50: by Ginger (new)

Ginger | 3239 comments I never thought of that Graeme!! It was there from the very beginning. Fantastic now that I think of it.

Glad you liked this Terry! (view spoiler)I love books like this because I never saw it coming.
