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.Hey! This week I have two awesome books to show you all. I had them on hold from the library and they just came in yesterday. I'm way too excited to read them.
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness:
Fleeing before a relentless army, Todd has carried a desperately wounded Viola right into the hands of their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss. Immediately separated from Viola and imprisoned, Todd is forced to learn the ways of the Mayor's new order. But what secrets are hiding just outside of town? And where is Viola? Is she even still alive? And who are the mysterious Answer? And then one day, the bombs begin to explode... - From back of book
Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan:
Tender Morsels is a dark and vivid story, set in two worlds and worrying at the border between them. Liga lives modestly in her own personal heaven, given to her by natural magic in exchange for her earthly life. Her two daughters, gentle Branza and curious Urdda, grow up in this soft world, protected from the violence and prejudice that harmed their mother. But the real world cannot be denied forever - magicked men and wild bears break down the borders of Liga's refuge. Now, having known heaven, how will these three women survive in a world where beauty and brutality lie side by side? - From back of book
I really loved The Knife of Never Letting Go, and I've heard that The Ask and the Answer is a great follow-up. As for Tender Morsels, all I can say is that I'm curious. I have next to no knowledge about what the story is actually about, so I'm going into this one with no expectations. Let's hope it's a success!
