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.I only have one new book this week (It was hard, but I refrained from going to the library) and it's a great one. Marce from Tea Time With Marce was too kind. All of the sudden she decided to buy some of her followers a book, just to say thanks. I thought that was very, very sweet of her! So this is the book that she bought me, and I can't tell you how excited I am to read it.
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood:
Oryx and Crake is at once an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future. Snowman, known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human, and mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved. In search of answers, Snowman embarks on a journey - with the help of the green-eyed children of Crake - through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city, until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride (from back of book).
You guys are probably tired of seeing me read Margaret Atwood books, but I can't resist not reading Oryx and Crake. I didn't know this, but it's the prequel to her newest book, "The Year of the Flood". What's in your mailbox this week? Feel free to leave a link so I can come visit.
