Monday: Mailbox/What Am I Reading?

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists. It has finally found a permanent  home at Mailbox Monday with the following new administrators:

Leslie of Under My Apple Tree
Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit
Vicki of I'd Rather Be at the Beach

I received two books, thanks you the authors/publicists:

Trigger Warning by Neil GaimanIt is a spectacular blend—twenty-five pieces in all—of horror and ghost stories, fabulism and poetry, science fiction and fairy tales that explore the realm of experience and emotion. A writer whose creative genius is unparalleled, Gaiman entrances readers with his literary alchemy, transporting us deep into the realm of imagination, where the fantastical becomes real and the everyday incandescent. Full of wonder and terror, surprises and delights, TRIGGER WARNING is a dazzling gift that will engage the mind, stir the heart, and shake the soul. 


Doll God by Luanne CastleLuanne Castle's debut poetry collection, Doll God, studies traces of the spirit world in human-made and natural objects--a Japanese doll, a Palo Verde tree, a hummingbird. Her exploration leads the reader between the twin poles of nature and creations of the imagination in dolls, myth, and art.

Hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of BooksWe discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.


I have only been reading romance novels since August 2014. Beginning from Jan 1, 2015, I have finished more that 43 novels till date. I am feeling good but I know I need to read serious stuff. Maybe in the next two months, I will do that!

I've seen Trigger Warning around, but didn't realize that it was short stories. I may have to give that a try!

I am impressed by Neil Gaiman and would love to read his stories. Romance also rules; hope you find some other genres this year.

The only book I've read by Neil Gaiman is Good Omens. While I wasn't actually the biggest fan of it, I'm still planning on reading more from him knowing how much I love the movies based on his work. Happy reading!

I can't get into Neil Gaiman's books.

Have a great reading week.

Scary cover on Vostok.

ENJOY your reading week, Laura.

Please delete my comment. I was sending that to another blogger and must have copied my reply. Sorry.
