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 Mondays is hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page and is the gathering place where we 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!!

The Boleyn Wife, Brandy Purdy

I was lucky and honored to received this ARC for reviewing. This is the story of Jane Rochford, the infamous wife of George Boleyn and sister-in-law to Anne, and who helped send them both to the block. A very interesting read and my review will be posted shortly.

Willoughby's Return, Jane Odiwe

I was really looking forward to this and bought it this week. It is a sequel to Austen's Sense and Sensibility that explores what happens when Willoughby and Marianne met again. It was a delightful read and my review will be up in a day or so (after the one above!).
