In My Mailbox (IMM) is weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. It’s a chance for people to tell others about the books they received that week.
Advent by James Treadwell
I received this for review from Hodder but honestly, I’m unsure about it. I’m not particularly a high fantasy fan. It’s described as “A clash of young and old, of ancient magic and burgeoning wisdom; a tumultuous struggle for survival; a search for love, truth and a place in the world; a coming of age, a leave taking, and an arrival”. I will still give it a go though.
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan
I won When She Woke in Diary of Eccentric’s giveaway. I originally thought it was a young adult dystopian novel, but it’s actually adult fiction. It’s described as “A powerful reimagining of The Scarlet Letter“.
After the Snow by S.D. Crockett
I received this for review from Macmillan Children’s Books. It’s a post-apocalyptic tale about “15-year-old Willo as he tries to survive, alone, in an endlessly wintery environment of the next ice-age in Europe”. I think it sounds brilliant.
New Girl by Paige Harbison (eGalley)
This one is a “contemporary young-adult retelling inspired by the classic 1938 romantic suspense bestseller Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.” Rebecca is on my wishlist; I think it’ll be interesting to read both the same month!
