I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

This is what I'm reading this week.  The excerpts are from the  E-ARC.

First Chapter

Rachel threw the medical mask on the floor, climbed out of the stupid quarantine suit, and took her son in her arms.  He was so light and bony that it was like picking up a stray cat.  She buried her face in his hair.  He smelled like sickness and plague.

From 56% on my Kindle...

He knew what this was about and had been mildly dreading it for a while.  He had to face it.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

An eerie debut about a little boy who recovers from a sickness and inherits an imaginary friend who makes him do violent things...

Kids have imaginary friends. Rachel knows this. So when her young son, Billy, miraculously recovers from a horrible flu that has proven fatal for many, she thinks nothing of Delfy, his new invisible friend. After all, her family is healthy and that's all that matters.

But soon Delfy is telling Billy what to do, and the boy is acting up and lashing out in ways he never has before. As Delfy's influence is growing stranger and more sinister by the day, and rising tensions threaten to tear Rachel's family apart, she clings to one purpose: to protect her children at any cost--even from themselves.

We Hear Voices is a mischievously gripping near-future horror novel that tests the fragility of family and the terrifying gray area between fear and love.

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. That opening scene! As a mother, I feel for her. This sounds like it will be quite a rollercoaster of a read--tense and emotional. I hope Billy and his family will be okay! I hope too you enjoy this one, Yvonne. Have a great weekend. Stay safe and well.

  2. What a relatable beginning! Love that cover too! Happy weekend!

  3. I haven't heard anything about We Hear Voices before. It seems like a good story. Enjoy your current read!
