In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox (IMM) is weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren It’s a chance for people to tell others about the books they received that week.

Today I received my first book from Ethan, who hosted a Giveaway n I won. THE SNOW CHILD by Eowyn Ivey

Goodreads Review :

Alaska, 1920: a brutal place to homestead, and especially tough for recent arrivals Jack and Mabel. Childless, they are drifting apart--he breaking under the weight of the work of the farm; she crumbling from loneliness and despair. In a moment of levity during the season's first snowfall, they build a child out of snow. The next morning the snow child is gone--but they glimpse a young, blonde-haired girl running through the trees. This little girl, who calls herself Faina, seems to be a child of the woods. She hunts with a red fox at her side, skims lightly across the snow, and somehow survives alone in the Alaskan wilderness. As Jack and Mabel struggle to understand this child who could have stepped from the pages of a fairy tale, they come to love her as their own daughter. But in this beautiful, violent place things are rarely as they appear, and what they eventually learn about Faina will transform all of them.

I'm most looking forward to read The Snow Child and give my own review. What bookish things have you guys received/bought lately?
