    Hi Katie, just wanted to say how much I love these Weekend Book Buzz emails. I look forward to them each Monday. I use them in particular to understand what new releases are coming during the week as it’s so hard to keep up.

    And this new Psalms series of novels. Never heard of those so excited to grab the first one to see what it’s like.

    Oh well, have a lovely week.
