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 the gathering 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!!

Pendragon's Banner, Helen Hollick

I won this in a contest on Historical Obsessed. Thanks Lizzy!! This is the second book in Hollick's Arthurian trilogy (after The Kingmaking). Really looking forward to reading this one!


  1. I really enjoyed reading both The Kingmaking and Pendragon's Banner! Hope you enjoy it too!

  2. Oh you are in for a treat - this series ROCKS!!! I'm looking forward to the 3rd book, but then again I don't want it to end!

    Here's mine:

    Have a good week!
