This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Mailbox Mondays

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page and is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Here are the books I got this past week, all coming from fellow bloggers and will be reviewed soon!

Pride and Prescience, Carrie Bebris

This one looks interesting as it is a "Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mystery" and I've always loved Jane Austen's books. There certainly has been a lot of re-writing and creating sequels lately. This author apparently has done numerous books like this and I may be tempted to try the others after I read this one.

Two Brothers, David H. Jones

My first historical love was the Civil War and I am looking forward to reading this story of two brothers fighting on opposing sides.

Stranger's Kiss, Mary Blayney

So this one is not in my usual reading subject area but even I enjoy a romance every once and a while. Sometimes you just need some lighter fare and these stories usually fit in nicely.


  1. Hope you enjoy them all! Have a good week : )

  2. How fun - a new Pride and Prejudice sequel :) Pride and Prescience sounds like a fun book!!
