Mailbox Monday

Good Morning everyone. :) I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Here are a couple of books I've received from paperbackswap.



I've never been certain I'm human Oh, the X-rays and blood tests are normal, and most people have no reason to suspect I'm more than I appear to be. But if I tell you to do something? You do it -- no ifs, ands or buts.

I call my power the "press."

My name is Mercy Hollings, and if you think that having the power to control people makes my life easy, you're dead wrong.

Because when I get angry, everyone around me is at risk -- Sukey, my friend who has frightening taste in men; my clients, who, ironically, come to be for help; my neighbors, who regard me as a loner; and Sam, a man who wants to know my darkest secret.

I have hurt people in the past, and I don't want that to happen again. But now a powerful stranger is threatening the new life that I've made for myself.

And I'm afraid my anger is taking over.



And

Book Blurb:

In the first book of this brilliant series, Stephen King introduces readers to one of his most enigmatic heroes, Roland of Gilead, The Last Gunslinger.
He is a haunting figure, a loner on a spellbinding journey into good and evil.

In his desolate world, which frighteningly mirrors our own, Roland pursues The Man in Black, encounters an alluring woman named Alice, and begins a friendship with the Kid from Earth called Jake.

Both grippingly realistic and eerily dreamlike, The Gunslinger leaves readers eagerly awaiting the n
ext chapter.

I have not read anything by Toni Andrews and it has been forever since I've read Stephen King. :)

I am looking forward to both of these.

Ah Michelle another Paper Back Swapper, fun is it not?
Toni Andrews has a good series going with Mercy Hollings it is different from most of the other paranormal reads out right now because it was started well before the current crop of stuff out there.
You will either really like this particular character and continue the series or hate it and not there really is no in between for Mercy...

Thanks B. :)

jacaburl,

I love paperbackswap. LOL I have found so many books I probably would not have otherwise tried. :) I'm looking forward to the Mercy Hollings book - as a matter of fact I have all 3 on the 'tbr' shelf - so I'm hoping that I like them. :)

Thanks for stopping by ladies.

I've been curious about Toni Andrews, I hope you post your thoughts on this one. I've never been much of a Stephen King fan -- my dad and brother think I'm a freak of nature because of it too. ;)

Enjoy your new books!

I've had Toni Andrew's series in my TBR pile for a year now. I don't know why I haven't started reading it yet - probably because none of he blogs I frequent have reviewed the series yet. I look forward to reading your review.
