Episode 1-27: It Takes Two To Make A Thing Go Right SECOND CANNONBALL!! Wherein I review: 104. Missing You by Harlan Coben 105. The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa 106. The Infinite Future by Tim Wirkus 107. We Are Anonymous by Parmy Olson Mswas was giving me the props early, but I finally crossed that second cannonball. We’re halfway there, halfway there, halfway there. Read my favorite Harlan Coben premise with my least favorite character leading the way. Finally read something sweet and short, […]

Episode 1-23: Sometimes Your Words Just Hypnotize Me Wherein I review: 88. Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis 89. Don’t Let Go by Harlan Coben 90. Wolf Lake (Dave Gurney #5) by John Verdon I read a university literary romp where I hate every character, then I travel to New Jersey for a decades long murder mystery involving an old Nike Missile base, and then we go on the worst vacation since Ed Helms’ mistake with Dave Gurney that involves hypnotism and completely abandoning your previous character […]
I really can’t be objective when Harlan Coben writes another Myron Bolitar mystery. I’m just so darn happy to see Myron, Win, and the rest of the Scooby gang again and find out what they’re up to.
