Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Savvy Verse & Wit is hosting for the month of October. You can view the touring blog list at Mailbox Monday blog for the upcoming months.

In the mail this week I received one book:

Born Mad by Robyn Wheeler (for review from Pump Up Your Book Promotions)

Robyn takes you inside her deepest thoughts and fears, as well as her chronic anger and thoughts of suicide. After being diagnosed with a "bad state of mind" called dysthymia, Robyn wrote Born Mad to help others who may be unaware that they might be suffering from a low-grade chronic depression that will make life difficult, ruin relationships, and contribute to a negative and hopeless outlook on life. Born Mad includes symptoms of dysthymia and coping strategies, as well as the story of how Robyn came to believe in God, defeat chronic anger, and become the person she was meant to be.

So what did you get in your mailbox last week?
