Mailbox Monday & It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It was created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here

 

This week I downloaded the ebook of The Woods by Harlan Coben:

 

The WoodsTwenty years ago, four teenagers at summer camp walked into the woods at night. Two were found murdered, and the others were never seen again. Four families had their lives changed forever. Now, two decades later, they are about to change again. For Paul Copeland, the county prosecutor of Essex, New Jersey, mourning the loss of his sister has only recently begun to subside. Cope, as he is known, is now dealing with raising his six-year-old daughter as a single father after his wife has died of cancer. Balancing family life and a rapidly ascending career as a prosecutor distracts him from his past traumas, but only for so long. When a homicide victim is found with evidence linking him to Cope, the well-buried secrets of the prosecutor's family are threatened. Is this homicide victim one of the campers who disappeared with his sister? Could his sister be alive? Cope has to confront so much he left behind that summer twenty years ago: his first love, Lucy; his mother, who abandoned the family; and the secrets that his Russian parents might have been hiding even from their own children. Cope must decide what is better left hidden in the dark and what truths can be brought to the light.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is a weekly meme run by Book Journey and you can mention books you've just finished, are currently reading and any you plan to read this week. You can leave a link to your blog and read other bloggers posts.

 

ThinnerThis week I gave up on a review book that I really wasn't enjoying  despite it starting well, No One Gets Out Alive by Adam Nevill.  I did finish a very good one though and my review for The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins is here

I'm now reading Thinner by Stephen King for the second time but as the first time was many years ago I can't remember much about it.

  2. I've never heard of "Thinner." I would like to try that Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King, but his books are always so fat.

  5. Harlen Coben is an author I like.

    I have done that before with a book, but I just couldn't continue. The tour folks and publishers are very understanding.

    ENJOY all your books and your reading week.
