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 - February 27, 2012

Mailbox Monday is now on tour! It is being hosted this month by MetroReader. To find out more about the history of Mailbox Monday and a list of future hosts visit the Mailbox Monday site.

Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week and explore great book blogs. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists!

A couple new books for review showed up over the past couple of days!

Her Highness, the Traitor, Susan Higginbotham

Very excited to get Susan's newest novel about Jane Dudley (Robert Dudley's mother) and Frances Grey (Jane Grey's mother)! Look for my review soon!

The Queen's Pleasure, Brandy Purdy

I also received this one for review as well! Very much looking forward to seeing the author's take on Amy Dudley's story (wife of Robert Dudley).


  1. Love your mailbox this week! I can't wait to read Her Highness, the Traitor.

  2. Great books. I enjoyed one of Susan Higginbotham's earlier books.
