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 Monday

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!

For the King's Favor, Elizabeth Chadwick

Received this in the mail today to review. Thank you Sourcebooks!!


  1. I'm going to have to try one of Chadwick's books. Happy reading!

  2. I was sorely tempted to go for this, but since I already own the UK edition it felt kinda greedy :)

    This is excellent, hope you enjoy.

  3. Hope you enjoy For the King's Favor. It was tempted too Misfit! I offered to be part of the promotion without actually getting the book instead.
