    We’re starting The Sinking City this week! It’s such a great book and I can’t wait to see what you all think. It’s a fun, quick read so if you get behind it’s very easy to catch up. Let’s read chapters 1-4 this week and see how that goes 😊

    Christine Cohen is a Christian author living in Moscow, ID with her husband and three kids. She is the director of the MFA program at New Saint Andrews College. She posts great book recommendations on Instagram and also funny memes 😆 Christine also has a book, The Winter King, that is a great read.

    Chapters 5-8 this week! How’s everyone liking it?! Jordan and I were talking about the fact that Cohen makes the setting into a character itself. Some stories could happen anywhere and it wouldn’t change a thing but the setting is a crucial aspect and the story couldn’t exist without it. Mago Re and Aloysius remind me of Sherlock Holmes and Watson 😂 The seleni are the perfect villain.

    Also, “Into the mouth of the wolf” “May the wolf die” gave me chills.

    I love it so much. I’m way ahead because I just can’t stop reading it! Yes the setting, the imagery. Re’s house sounds astounding. And I want to go to Venice now. Even if this is a fictional version of the city it makes me want to visit.

    I loved the last chapter of this book. It all tied up so tidy.
