In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly post about books obtained by you this week- be it by library, bookstore, borrowed from a friend, etc. Thanks to The Story Siren blog ( for coming with this fun meme!

P.S. I am supposed to do this Sundays, but I didn't know about this until today, so I'll start Sundays next week.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

This looks so, SO great. I've started the first few pages, and it's just... wow. The narrator kind of interacts with you, and I'm in love with the plot any mystery of it all. It's set in the Holocaust (er, did I spell that right?), and it focuses on a German girl named Leisel, whose brother died on the way to their foster home. At his burial, she finds a book, The Grave Digger's Handbook, nestled in the snow by his grave, and she takes it. That lights a passion in her, a passion for words. Soon she's getting books everywhere she can, like Nazi book burnings. It just sounds like such a different, wonderful read, right? Okay, I'm done gushing. What did y'all get in your mailbox this week?
