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.Once again, I didn't get that many news books this week. But, I did buy a couple for three dollars at this discount book store. They're both written by authors that I simply adore, so I'm excited to start them!
Lady Oracle by Margaret Atwood:
Joan Foster is the bored wife of a myopic ban-the-bomber. She takes off overnight as Canada's new superpoet, pens lurid gothics on the sly, attracts a blackmailing reporter, skids cheerfully in and out of menacing plots, hair-raising traps, and passionate trysts, and lands dead and well in Terremoto, Italy (from back cover).
Curtain by Agatha Christie:
Both Poirot and Great Styles have seen better days - but despite being crippled with arthritis, there is nothing wrong with the detective's 'little grey cells'. However, when Poirot brands one of the seemingly harmless guests as a five-time murderer, some people have their doubts. But Poirot alone knows he must prevent a sixth murder before the curtain falls... (from back cover).
After reading the summary of Lady Oracle, I can officially say that I'm clueless in terms of the plot. It's Atwood, though, so it's bound to be a good read. As for the Christie book - I'm in the mood for a good, solid mystery. Hopefully these two books will be enjoyable! What's in your mailbox? Feel free to leave a link so I can come visit.
