Mondays: Musing/Mailbox/Whereabouts

Monday Mailbox is hosted by Marcia.

I received two books:


It's about a blind vigilante who is on a mission to save her brother and the missing kids on Mars. There is action, adventure and romance in this tale as Shamira learns to trust Valens and others.

Never Let You Go By Erin Healy

In “Never Let You Go,” Lexi is a young single mother learning to cope with the aftermath of a family disaster and the decisions of her husband, who left seven years ago. With little left to hold on to, she devotes her life to her only daughter, and is determined to do anything—work grueling hours, sacrifice financially—just to make her happy.

But when her estranged husband unexpectedly reenters their lives, her sister’s murderer comes up for parole and an unwanted acquaintance returns demanding payment of an old debt, Lexi’s world is quickly turned upside-down once again. As hidden sins are exposed and a whirlwind of mysterious forces begin to surface, her tenuous grip on life and her loved ones is threatened.

Musing Mondays2
What happens when you see a movie based on a book/story, especially one you’ve not read? Do you feel the need to track it down and read it?

I do try to track it down and read it. Many a times, I have been disappointed with the movie, not the book. I have read all the Harry Potter books and plan to watch all the movies too. Same goes for Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson.

However, I prefer to watch the movies made out of Jane Austen Novels. I can't stand her novels!
