A few books arrived on my doorstep this week:

Mailbox Monday 65

At The Bottom Of Everything by Ben Dolnick – For review from Pantheon / Random House. This adult fiction novel is about a friendship torn apart by a secret.

Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near – I ordered a few books by Australian authors on Fishpond, and this is the first to arrive. I love the official description, it’s “a deliciously dark bubblegum-gothic fairytale”

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King  – For review from Simon & Schuster Audio. I read The Shining in high school, and wish I could fit in a re-read before checking out the sequel. The audiobook is read by Will Patton.

Smoke by Ellen Hopkins – For review from Simon & Schuster Audio. I’m going to listen to Burned first so I can read it and the sequel back to back. The audiobook is read by January LaVoy and Candace Thaxton.


Poison Dance by Livia Blackburne – Review copy provided by the author. This is a prequel novella to Blackburne’s 2014 high fantasy YA Midnight Thief.

Trust in Me by J. Lynn – This is a novella-length companion to Wait for You featuring Cam’s POV. Received from William Morrow via Edelweiss.

Red Hill by Jamie McGuire – New Adult Romance author McGuire tries her hand at a zombie novel. Really curious about this one! Received from Atria Books via Edelweiss.

Suicide Watch by Kelley York – Picked up the kindle edition, now on sale for $0.99. As the title suggests, the protagonist is going through a dark time, and makes some powerful connections in a pro-suicide forum.

The Bridge by Rebecca Rogers Maher – I purchased this kindle new release novella, coincidentally also about suicide. This is about two people that meet on the Brooklyn Bridge, both planning to end their lives. They decide to wait for 24-hours to try to change each other’s mind. They go sightseeing all over New York on their journey.

Some dark and heavy books this week- it must be Fall!

Have a good week and let me know what you’re reading in the comments.

    I love fall! It finally felt a bit like it this weekend, too. Great haul this week. Thanks for the tip about Fishpond. I have been wanting a copy of Fairy Tales for Wilde Girls. Let me know what you think of Red Hill. I haven’t read any Jamie MacGuire yet. And can you believe I have never read Stephen King. Crazy, I know. Have a good week, Lucy!

  2. It’s still kind of winter weather here – very windy and rainy. Kind of good in a way because it’s dark, Gothic book weather! I like the cover of The Bottom of Everything – simple but intriguing.

    I’d like to read Smoke but I’m not sure how it would be on audio. I’ll be watching to see what you think of it.

  4. I’m very curious about Doctor Sleep…enjoy your lovely reads, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    Red Hill looks good. Smoke and the Stephen Kin book look quite scary!! 🙂 I can’t read Stephen King….give me nightmares. 🙂

    ENJOY your week and your books.

    I’m near the top of my library waiting list for Doctor Sleep. I hope I get it soon!

    I so want to read Doctor Sleep, but like you I would like to reread The Shining first. I also read it in high school, and in French translation, so my memory of it is far from perfect! Still, I haven’t decided if I’ll reread or just jump right in. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it though!
    Enjoy your new books!

  11. Mary says:

    I read a 5-star review for Doctor Sleep today. Hope you love it!

  12. You have a lot of great looking books here! I really need to read another Ellen Hopkins book, I’ve only read Triangles but I liked it. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Red Hill caught my attention also. I would like to read more books about Australia too.
