In My Mailbox: January Edition

This the fourth edition of In My Mailbox, a meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I wasn’t going to buy more books but you see, Chapters had a sale and I just couldn’t resist:

Fobbit

Fobbit ~ David Abrams

About: Paper shufflers, cooks and other military personnel stationed in Iraq who never see front-line action (also called Fobbits).

Life After Life ~ Kate Atkinson
About: A woman named Ursula keeps dying and living and dying and living, repeat, repeat, repeat.

One_Hundred_Years

The Midwife of Venice ~ Roberta Rich
About: A Jewish midwife is asked to attend to a Christian woman in labour thereby risking the lives of the entire ghetto population in 16th century Venice.

One Hundred Years of Solitude ~ Gabriel Garcia Marquez
About: Not sure actually. I was told that it’s a must-read modern classic for anyone that enjoys magical realism.
