This week, Kyrie and Cori discuss the books they selected for the horror/scary genre, as well as what the heck the difference between horror, thriller, and suspense genres! Here’s a sneak peek at the findings:  all deal with fear.  During their discussion, Kyrie and Cori drink Yogi Cranberry Spice Probiotic . It’s a bit bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Kyrie and Cori think it’s just ok.
Kyrie’s pick,World War Z by Max Brooks, goes into full detail/testimonials of what happened with the big zombie apocalypse has happened. There isn’t much of a plot, but mostly just people’s stories at different times and places as this zombie apocalypse was happening. According to Max, he took things that have technically already happened and just added zombies!

 

Cori’s selection, Security by Gina Wohlsdorf, is about killers in a luxury hotel that is about to open.  One by one, the employees are being killed off, and only you and the omniscient narrator knows what is going on for quite some time.  The story is literally told through the view of the gazillion security cameras.  Like all good slasher stories, you can expect a high body count and some gruesome blood and guts visuals/descriptions.
