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 - July 25, 2011

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme originally created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books (formerly known as The Printed Page) and is now located here. 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.

Mailbox Monday is being hosted this month by A Sea of Books.

I got a couple that I can't wait to read; gotta get through a couple of others and post reviews first.

The King's Grey Mare, Rosemary Hawley Jarman

Ms. Jarman's novels have come highly recommended so I'm looking forward to getting into this novel about Elizabeth Woodville, Edward IV's wife. This came from

We Speak No Treason: The White Rose Turned to Blood, R. H. Jarman

Another Jarman novel from Unfortunately I do not have the first in this series so I am going to have to wait to read this one!


  1. I have the first one but hadn't heard of the second one. Will have to add that one to my list!

  2. These both look like good historical reads. Enjoy!
