Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page (now at it's own Mailbox Monday website) and is currently on tour at a different blog each month. For the month of March it is being hosted by Laura at I'm Booking It.
This week I received two exciting books in my mailbox - to try and even out the pressures of those ever present bills!
I received one book for review from Sourcebooks - Mary of Carisbrooke by Margaret Campbell Barnes. I really didn't know too much about this book prior to accepting it - but I have rather enjoyed the Barnes books that I have read, so I jumped on this one. Here is the blurb:
"The moving, tragic story of Charles I, the last absolute monarch of England, during his imprisonment in Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight. Richly drawn and inspired by the New York Times bestselling author’s own experience living on the Isle of Wight, this dramatic retelling brings to life the cavalier king whom Cromwell deposed. But even more fascinating than the account of royal hopes and misfortunes is the tale of a charming servant girl who is as romantic and tender in love as she is bold and resourceful in plotting the king’s escape."
The second book that I received has been on my wish list forever - and was won from a giveaway at Slice of Life - Outlander by Diana Gabaldon! Very excited to hopefully get to read this one sometime sooner rather than later. Thanks Joanne!
What kind of goodies did you get this week?
