Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. The October host is Marcia at The Mailbox Monday Blog.
 
A wonderful selection of audiobooks arrived last week. Since I’ve been listening to more books than I’ve been reading, I was happy to receive them.

For review from Audiobook Jukebox:

In the Tall Grass
by Stephen King, Joe Hill

Could there be any better place to set a horror story than an abandoned rest stop?” In the Tall Grass begins with a sister and brother who pull off to the side of the road after hearing a young boy crying for help from beyond the tall grass. Within minutes they are disoriented, in deeper than seems possible, and they’ve lost one another. The boy’s cries are more and more desperate. What follows is a terrifying, entertaining, and masterfully told tale.
 
Audiobooks for review from Penguin Audio:

 
Waging Heavy Peace by Neil Young
The Bone Bed by Patricia Cornwell
Call for the Dead by John le Carré
Dear Chandler, Dear Scarlett by Mike Huckabee
Poseidon’s Arrow by Clive Cussler
Mad River by John Sanford
Dark Storm by Christine Feehan

What are you reading?

    That should keep you busy for a while! I’m still not an audiobook convert. I tried one a few weeks ago (only 1.5 hours long) but I listened to it in 3 parts and during part 3 I’d forgotten too much of the story already. Whether it’s just a matter of listening in sessions that are closer together in terms of time, I don’t know. I’m not a very auditory person.

    But for you: have fun with this nice pile!

      I had to try a few times before audio worked for me. Some books just don’t work well in audio and some narrators are way better than others. Two that I listened to early on that made me love audio were The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, both fantastic productions. Ok, off my audio soapbox now!

    Awesome audiobook week for you! Neil Young and Stephen King stand out for me. And the Christine Feehan also looks intriguing.

    Very nice batch of audiobooks there! Some of Stephen King’s books tempt me (because I liked 11/22/63 so much), but I haven’t read them because I have an aversion to being terrified.
