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 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. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!!

It was a happy week for me and my mailbox!

Elizabeth, Captive Princess, Margaret Irwin

Thanks to Sourcebooks for this ARC to review! I read and reviewed the reissue of the first in the series (Young Elizabeth) and an thrilled to have a chance at the second in the series.

The Princeling, Cynthia Harrod - Eagles

Another ARC I received from Sourcebooks to review. I love the new covers they are giving the series! This one follows the Morlands into Elizabeth's reign.

The King's Mistress, Emma Campion

Thank you to Marcia at The Printed Page for letting me adopt this copy of Ms. Campion's new book.
