Mailbox Monday (8)

Mailbox Monday is a book meme which is hosted by Marcia at Mailbox Monday blog.

Basically, we have to make a post featuring the books which we bought, received for review, or loaned this past week.

For a while I thought I wasn't going to have anything to report in this week's Mailbox Monday but a Kindle Daily Deal and a NetGalley request came through at the last minute! Here is what made it in to my house:

Personal Purchases:

I haven't read any books by McCammon before but a lot of my friends on Goodreads rave about him and he is recommended by Stephen King so I think I will like him. Unfortunately all of his books are really long and have generally been quite expensive which has put me off buying them but this one appeared on a Kindle Daily Deal for £1.29 this week and I thought it was too good to miss out on. I might allocate it as my Halloween read!

Swan Song: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads

Books for Review on NetGalley:

Everything I Never Told You: View on Amazon || View on Goodreads

Have you read any of these? If so, what did you think? If not, do any of them take your fancy?


  1. Swan Song might be too scary for me!

  2. I have Everything I Never Told You...resting comfortably on Sparky. Hope to get to it soon...thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your books!

  3. I have been eyeing Everything I Never Told You. And Swan Song does look like an excellent Halloween read! Enjoy your new books & have a great week!

  4. Everything I Never Told You looks really interesting. It's new to me, but the cover has me quite intrigued. Happy reading!

  5. I don't think I would like Swan Song. I can't read Stephen King.

    Everything I Never Told You has such a great cover.

    ENJOY your reading week.

  6. Hi Sarah,

    Thank you for stopping by Fiction Books today. I love 'meeting' new people, so your visits will always be welcome and your comments always appreciated.

    I don't think that 'Swan Song' would be one for me, although I do quite like the cover art. I used to read a lot of the early Stephen King horror books, however since his writing has veered more and more towards the genre of fantasy, I have to admit I have kind of lost interest a bit. I do have fairly eclectic tastes in my reading, however fantasy isn't one of my preferred genres.

    'Everything I never Told You' is already on my 'Want To Read' list, as it has featured on one or two blogs just lately, although goodness knows when I shall get around to reading it.

    There are so many sources of great freebies these days, that I need never be lacking a good book to read!

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week,


    1. Yes King's books have taken a slight turn towards other genres. His most recent, Mr Mercedes, is a mystery/crime/suspense - nothing horror or fantasy about it so it might appeal to you. I thought it was fantastic.
