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, eBooks & audio books do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Got one in the mail today that I snagged through Bookpleasures. It is an ARC that I am super excited to get into!

The Stolen Crown, Susan Higginbotham

The upcoming novel about Katherine Woodville, sister to Elizabeth, Edward IV's beautiful queen. This focuses on her life and marriage which should be really interesting. Richard III shows up in it so of course I can't wait to see how he comes across in this telling! Ms. Higginbotham's other works are wonderful so I've no doubt that this will be a hit as well. Keep an eye out for the review!
