*UPDATE*

I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Mailbox Monday #45

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page and has caused my bookshelves to overflow!

Another 1 book week for me here -

Received from Paperback Swap - When Christ and His Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman.

I have not yet had the chance to read any of Penman's books, but I am working on adding them to my collection.

"Henry I is dead, and even as the bells toll, his barons confer edgily. Bound by oath, they must now deal with the King's only surviving legitimate issue: the handsome, intelligent, and commanding Maude, Henry's daughter and heir. Just as Maude reaches for the crown, her trusted cousin Stephen moves with treacherous speed to set himself up as king. Bound and determined, Maude sets sail for England—and for war. In this novel, Sharon Kay Penman brings to life a dark period in English history, painting a canvas rich in the color and textures of the era."

Anything good in your mailboxes?

  2. Amy is right! You do need to read Penman! I started with Sunne in Splendour and then the Welsh trilogy.

  3. I have the Sunne in Splendor and my goal is to read it before the end of the year. The goal originally was before the end of the summer, but I don't think that is quite going to happen.

  5. I have not read any of Penman's books either but I really want to. Maybe I should start gathering them as well so that I actually remember that they are on my list of to-reads.

  6. I have got to read more of her books. I have several on my TBR mountain. Once we head into winter and good serious reading weather I'll have to get them out.
