Book Summary from Amazon:
Alex Dale is lost. Destructive habits have cost her a marriage and a journalism career. All she has left is her routine: a morning run until her body aches, then a few hours of forgettable work before the past grabs hold and drags her down. Every day is treading water, every night is drowning. Until Alex discovers Amy Stevenson. Amy Stevenson, who was just another girl from a nearby town until the day she was found unconscious after a merciless assault. Amy Stevenson, who has been in a coma for fifteen years, forgotten by the world. Amy Stevenson, who, unbeknownst to her doctors, remains locked inside her body, conscious but paralyzed, reliving the past.
Soon Alex’s routine includes visiting hours at the hospital, then interviews with the original suspects in the attack. But what starts as a reporter’s story becomes a personal obsession. How do you solve a crime when the only witness lived but cannot tell the tale? Unable to tear herself away from her attempt to uncover the unspeakable truth, Alex realizes she’s not just chasing a story—she’s seeking salvation.
Shifting from present to past and back again, Try Not to Breathe unfolds layer by layer until its heart-stopping conclusion. The result is an utterly immersive, unforgettable debut.
This book sounds very interesting to me!
Now on to this cute package:
Inside I found:
Warmer Style Red Fingerless Gloves – Value $14
Here they are on:
I love the color, and the inside of the fabric is super soft:
When I first saw these in the box I thought it was a little late in the year to be sending out any type of gloves, but then I woke up to snow on the ground, and wore these today when we walked the dog!
This candle is made with natural soy wax, 100% cotton wick, and phthalate-free fragrance! It smells great too. Here it is with the lid off:
These are some of the best marshmallows I’ve ever tasted! Some vanilla flavored marshmallows don’t really taste that vanilla to me, but these had the perfect amount of flavor and they are heart shaped!
I’m guessing they would look great in a mug of hot chocolate, but they were so delicious we never made it to that stage…
And! Viveltre has a Marshmallow Subscription Box!
Treehouse Chocolate Co. Drinking Chocolate – Value $9 total
Yay! The Nectar hot chocolate is made with coconut milk so it is dairy free! And I know my husband will love the Camp flavor – it is made with coffee!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $60 (that’s with the discounted Amazon sale price of the box). I think that’s an OK value if you sign up with the $10 off for life coupon ($55 a month). Cozy Reader Club is still on the high-end in terms of cost for a monthly book box, so it probably isn’t for everyone, but I think they do an excellent job delivering on their promise of what you can expect in a box, and everything felt special!
Now I’m curious to see what “cozy” items they send for the warmer summer months. (I’m one of those people who are always cold though, so I’m sure whatever it is will work for me!)
What do you think of the Cozy Reader Club?
