Mailbox Monday is a weekly bookish meme 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!
Got some at Borders this past week (even though they weren't what I actually went to get!) and got a couple in the mail as well.
The Traitor's Wife, Susan Higginbotham
This was the first of Ms. Higginbotham's works that I read and I really enjoyed it. I finally decided to add it to my personal library. The Despenser story was quite interesting.
A Favorite of the Queen, Jean Plaidy
I couldn't find a picture of this cover; it is one of the re-issues that are coming out. This Plaidy novel focuses on Robert Dudley, Elizabeth I's favorite. As I always enjoy Plaidy's books, I am looking forward to this one.
Hester, Paula Reed
This one showed up unexpectedly in my mailbox...after I'd already checked it out of the library and finished it. Haha. Still...it was an interesting book and I don't mind having it on my shelf. :)
The Queen's Governess, Karen Harper
This is another one that showed up in my mailbox unexpectedly! Harper's newest novel recounts the life of Elizabeth's closest friend Kat Ashley.
