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!
I got some good ones this week!
Harold the King, Helen Hollick
After waiting ages to get this from PBS.com, I finally broke down and purchased it from the Book Depository (yay for free shipping worldwide!). It finally arrived at my front door and I am so excited to get into this one!
The Brothers of Gwynedd, Edith Pargeter
I picked this up at Books-A-Million while enjoying a day at the mall with the family. Reading Sharon Kay Penman's Welsh trilogy made me want to read more about Llewelyn so I was anxious to get this re-issue. I am curious as to why there is a picture of an 18th century woman on the top and a picture of Richard III headed to battle on the bottom!
Eleanor the Queen, Norah Lofts
It is certainly the year of Eleanor; Henry must be rolling in his grave! I have enjoyed this author's other novels and I love reading about Eleanor so I picked this up at Books-A-Million as well.
Emma, Jane Austen
In my quest to read more Austen this year (fits nicely into one of my challenges, hehe) I got this at Books-A-Million. I believe this is the novel that the 90s movie "Clueless" is based on.
