Mailbox Monday ~ September 23rd

Lg-Gerbera_MailboxMailbox 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. Today’s linky is hosted at Beauty in Ruins as the scheduled September host is again MIA.

Last week I received a couple of audio books that are perfect October reads (or listens), just in time for the RIP Event and the Doctor Sleep Readalong.

Audiobooks

BooksSept23

Evil Eye: Four Novellas of Love Gone Wrong by Joyce Carol Oates from Highbridge Audio through Audiobook Jukebox.
Few authors are able to create an atmosphere of unease and terror as well as Oates. All the novellas in this collection feature love that is somewhat askew, just off center and, ultimately, horrifying.

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King from Simon & Schuster Audio.
Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance and the very special twelve-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals.

New Giveaway

The Wedding Gift by Marlen Suyapa BoddenNow through September 28th readers with a US address can enter to win a copy of The Wedding Gift, historical fiction by Marlen Suyapa Bodden. Click HERE to enter.

From Publishers Weekly: In this stunning debut, Marlen Suyapa Bodden effortlessly transports the reader to 1852 Alabama, where slavery and racism may rule the day, but everything isn’t as black and white as it may seem … Bodden weaves a page-turning tangled web of misogyny, greed, scandal and violence in this powerful story about races colliding against the backdrop of America’s darkest era.

    I don’t like scary books…I would NOT sleep after reading the Stephen King book. 🙂

    I LOVED The Wedding Gift. Review is on my blog.

    Have a wonderful reading week and week in general.
