Mailbox Monday ~ May 9th


Mailbox Monday was created by The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their home last week.

Mailbox Monday is currently on tour, hosted by a different blog each month. This month’s host is Mari @ Mari Reads.
 
I received two books this week. Actually three. The Map of Time came with a copy of H. G. Well’s The Time Machine as it was the inspiration for The Map of Time. I’m really looking forward to reading this one. It encompasses all my favorite genres.

From the publisher for review:

Map Of TimeThe Map of Time
by Félix J. Palma

Spanish author Palma makes his U.S. debut with the brilliant first in a trilogy, an intriguing thriller that explores the ramifications of time travel in three intersecting narratives. In the opening chapter, set in 1896 England, aristocratic Andrew Harrington plans to take his own life, despondent over the death years earlier of his lover, the last victim of Jack the Ripper. Meanwhile, 21-year-old Claire Haggerty plots to escape her restrictive role as a woman in Victorian society by journeying to the year 2000. A new commercial concern, Murray’s Time Travel, offers such a trip for a hefty fee. Finally, Scotland Yarder Colin Garrett believes that the fatal wound on a murder victim could only have been caused by a weapon from the future. Linking all three stories is H.G. Wells, the author of The Time Machine.

A win from Atria books:

    Map of Time looks interesting. I love time travel stories. Is this also steampunk? The cover looks like it might be.

    Have a good week!
