Mailbox Monday (74)

I really didn't want to have another Mailbox Monday post for a long while but I caved and bought a couple of books this week.  YIKES.  I think I only made it two or three weeks without buying books. 

Work continues to be busy and and the week was crazy with house hunting.  We looked at several houses and even put an offer on one but nothing came of it.  So back to the drawing board! I also started watching '13 Reasons Why' on NetFlix and then the hubs got really into it and binge watched the whole season.  I didn't see all of it but I'm pretty sure I've seen enough.  I didn't dislike it but it was pretty dark and makes me terrified of sending my daughter to school.  I think I'll just stick with getting caught up on 'This is Us'.  Because of all that, it was a really slow reading week. I'd like to finish two more books before the month is over so I better get on it!

Finished Reading:

A Bridge Across the Ocean by Susan Meissner

Currently Reading:

The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
Under the Approaching Dark by Anna Belfrage

Purchased (for kindle):





What books did you get this week?

  2. I downloaded a free Kindle book from Anna Belfrage this week too. I agree that 13 Reasons Why is dark. And my son who is 13 and watched the series told me that some of his friends from school who suffer from depression and have been bullied in the past, can't watch it because it would trigger them. School is a SCARY place for our kids.

    1. I can definitely see how it would be triggering to some people.

      I hope you enjoy the Anna Belfrage book. I've read all of her stuff and love it!

  3. I wasn't crazy about the book Thirteen Reasons Why so I haven't been interested in the show. It seemed to me the protagonist blamed problems of her own making on other people.

    Enjoy your new books!

    1. I agree. There was a lot of unnecessary blaming from Hannah. Another reason that I don't need to finish it.

    1. Thanks! I hope so too. House hunting has been way more stressful than I imagined.

    1. I've been trying to stay away from the library and amazon because I really need to read what I already own. BUT it's so hard to do!
