Mailbox Monday and What Are You Reading

This is a weekly meme hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. Join the fun and post what you got in your mailbox last week!

It was a slow week in my mailbox for which I am grateful.

I received 32 poems volume 7 from a contest win during BBAW.






The Surrendered by Change-Rae Lee (Received from Riverhead books for review)












That is all my mailbox contained this week. Kind of a nice change of pace from the last few crazy weeks.

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finished this week.

Books I finished last week:
The Secret of Joy - Melissa Senate
Struts & Frets - Jon Skovron

Currently Reading:
Life After 187 - Wade J. Halverson


Books to Finish this Week:

Life After 187 - Wade J. Halverson
I will put Under the Dome by Stephen King although I highly doubt I will finish that book in one weeks time.

I will be watching for your thoughts on King's book. After CELL, I don't trust him.

The Surrendered looks intriguing.I will be interested in your review of the Stephen King book. I find him to be a gifted but inconsistent author. I've loved many of his books, and really hated others. Here's what I'm up to.

I would love to read the new one by Stephen King - I used to read him all the time!

Happy reading and Happy Thanksgiving!

I look forward to reading The Secret of Joy.
Stephen King is one author I avoid. I just cannot get Shining out of my head!!!
