Hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, In My Mailbox is where you share the recent books you've bought/received/taken out from the library.This week was a pretty average week in terms of the new books I got. There's only two new ones (both of which I borrowed from someone), but they sound very emotional. Here they are!
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay: Journalist Julia Jarmond is assigned to write an article about the Vel' d'Div' roundup which happened in Paris in July 1942. This was the day when Sarah, a ten year old girl, was brutally arrested along with her family by the French police. As Julia researches this topic, she begins to uncover this girl's life and a trail of long-hidden family secrets.
(I'm borrowing this book from a friend. She highly recommended it and said it almost made her cry! Yes... that's what I like. We'll see how this goes!)
The Postmistress by Sarah Blake: On the eve of the United States's entrance into World War II in 1940, Iris James, the postmistress of Franklin, a small town on Cape Cod, does the unthinkable: She doesn't deliver a letter. The Postmistress is an unforgettable tale of the secrets we must bear, or bury. It is about what happens to love during wartime, when those we cherish leave. And how every story - of love or war - is about looking left when we should have been looking right. - Goodreads
(I'm not sure how this sounds, to be honest. I'm not one who normally enjoys war novels, but I'm not going to judge this before I start reading. Let's hope it's good!)
And that sums up my new reading material, which I'll start once I'm done the stuff from last week. What's in your mailbox? Feel free to leave a link in the comments so I can come visit you!
