In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren. This meme was began so we could all share what books we received the previous week ... whether it was in the mail, from the library or what we bought at a store.
Aesop's Fables: I bought his book because it is one of the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die.
Aesop was a slave who lived in the early sixth century BC on the island of Samos. The particular quality of Aesop's fables is that they use the imaginary adventures of animals to make a moral point about human life.
Expiation by Greg Messel: I received this book from the author's publicist for review. The author has agreed to do an interview and a 2 book giveaway, so be watching for details to come later this week!
The book is about a couple, Dan and Katie, who are high school sweethearts but, through a chain of events, separate. Thirty years later, they 'reconnect in a most unexpected way as the rest of the world grows more fearful of Y2K and the dawn of the twenty-first century. They are hoping that their love, once lost, can now be reclaimed.' (Taken from the back cover)
Dark Muse by BrokenSword: This is another book I received from an author for review. This author has also agreed to an interview and giveaway. For this giveaway, there will be FIVE winners!!! More details will follow within the next couple weeks.
(Taken from back cover) Jason, a miller from 18th century Carolina, seeks to escape a loveless marriage while on an Atlantic voyage to Italy, aboard a ship whose captain hides a pirate past. As he watches his wedding ring disappear beneath the waves, he's chosen to alter his path. Within his yearning to find true love, is a hidden passion for rhyme and verse. Taking strength from his words, he builds relationships with others onboard who share his passionate nature, including a supernatural muse who shapes his words and ideas, and ultimately, the truths he finds within himself.
Happy Reading! =)
