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. It is a place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!!

So I got two this week that I was super excited about!!

The Court of the Midnight King, by Freda Warrington

I got this one from a friend over at Goodreads. Thank you MAP! I have been anxiously awaiting this one! It is another novel about Richard III (and y'all know about my obsession with things dealing with Dickon!).

O, Juliet, by Robin Maxwell

I was honored to receive an advanced copy of her upcoming novel! It is a telling of the story of Romeo and Juliet...but not Shakespeare's version!! I can't wait to get into this one! Also, there will be a lot of fun stuff coming in the next couple of months leading up to the release of this book! Stay tuned!!

  1. O, Juliet sure sounds good to me. I haven't read anything by Maxwell yet. Enjoy your new books!
