Mondays: Mailbox/What Are You Reading/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her BooksStaci from Life in the Thumb  is hosting for the month of August.

I received one book, thanks to the author:

Misery Bay: An Alex McKnight Novel (Alex Mcknight Mystery)Misery Bay by Steve Hamilton

On a frozen January night, a young man loops one end of a long rope over the branch of a tree. The other end he ties around his neck. A snowmobile will find him thirty-six hours later, his lifeless eyes staring out at the endless cold water of Lake Superior. It happens in a lonely corner of the Upper Peninsula, in a place they call Misery Bay. 


            What seems like a simple quest to find a few answers will turn into a nightmare of sudden violence and bloody revenge, and a race against time to catch a ruthless killer. McKnight knows all about evil, of course, having faced down a madman who killed his partner and left a bullet next to his heart. Mobsters, drug dealers, hit men—he’s seen them all, and they’ve taken away almost everything he’s ever loved. But none of them could have ever prepared him for the darkness he’s about to face.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.

Currently reading the above novel!

Do you like looking at other people’s bookshelves?

YES. Mainly because I want to check out what they are reading and if I can pick anything. The bookshelves also convey the reading taste of the owner. And I like to know that.
