In My Mailbox is a weekly meme sponsored by The Story Siren. It is a way for bloggers to network and share what books they are reviewing, borrowing, and/or buying.
It has been a slow reading week for me for a variety of reasons, but I am excited about adding these three books to my "mound" of reads.
The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai - The books on the cover drew me to pick up this book, but what made me purchase it was the opening line on the dust jacket: "Lucy Hull, a young children's librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home." It looks like a great adult read about accepting and loving our children just as they are.
The Book of Elsewhere: Spellbound by Jacqueline West - I love the magic of a great children's series, and I really enjoyed the first novel, The Shadows.
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater - one of the most anticipated releases this summer, especially because of the way Linger ended, and I am curious to see how Maggie ends the story of Sam and Grace.
What did you get this week? Have you read any of these novels and loved/liked/hated them?
Happy reading to all!
