In My Mailbox!

Description

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi at The Story Siren. It is a great way to put a spotlight on books received during the past week. 


Sent from Publishers:

Title: When She Woke
Author: Hillary Jordan


This is a dystopian re-telling of The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Already started it- is awesome so far.






Title: The Map of Time
Author: Feliz Palma


I love this quote from Amazon because it makes me excited to read this:


'An epic, ambitious and page-turning mystery that will appeal to fans of The Shadow of the Wind, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell and The Time Traveller’s Wife


Won:

Title: Imagine
Author: Jonah Lehrer

I don't usually have much interest in non-fiction but this sounds really good. It is about how we imagine and how creativity works. There are really interesting examples used such as Bob Dylan, Pixar and Shakespeare. I will definitely give it a go and probably dip in and out of it!

NetGalley Books

I got lots of Graphic Novels from NetGalley this week and I can't wait to read them! 







Books I bought:

Title: The Lies of Locke Lamora
Author: Scott Lynch

The Amazon description sounds SO GOOD!

'Set in a fantastic city pulsing with the lives of decadent nobles and daring thieves, here is a story of adventure, loyalty, and survival that is one part Robin Hood, one part Ocean’s Eleven, and entirely enthralling.…'



Those are the books I got this week: let me know if you've read or want to read any of them!

  4. Seems like NetGalley has had some really great stuff lately. I can't seem to stay away! I've heard of When She Woke, but didn't realize it was a retelling. I'm going to have to add that one. I've never read Jordan. Thanks for visiting and Happy Reading!
