Mailbox Mondays is hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page. It 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.
There have been several books out since the beginning of October that I wanted and I have managed to get two of them. I did find another I really wanted but it was only in hardcover and I can't pay $25 for one book at the moment.
The Queen's Mistake, by Diane Haeger
This is a novel about Henry VIII's fifth wife, Catherine Howard. I have read one other of this author's works and wasn't too thrilled with it so I'm hoping this one is a bit better.
The Tudor Rose, by Margaret Campbell Barnes
This is a reprint/issue of one of her novels that was published back in the 50s (I think). The copy I got at Borders has a different cover on it though. It is the story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV, wife of Henry VII, and mother of Henry VIII. I'm looking forward to reading this one because I have become really fascinated with the Wars of the Roses over the past several months, though I have heard that Richard of Gloucester is not painted in a very favorable light in this version.
