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 #101

This is Mailbox Monday on Wednesday - I had some reviews scheduled as part of a tour for Monday and Tuesday - check them out if you haven't already!!!.

Anyway, this week I received two books for review from Sourcebooks.  I received the follow up to His Last Duchess by Gabrielle Kimm - Courtesan's Lover.  This book follows one of the secondary characters from His Last Duchess following the events of the first book.  I loved Kimm's writing style so I am looking forward to reading this one.

I also received Her Highness, the Traitor by Susan Higginbotham.  This looks to be a story about how Jane Grey became queen - from the perspectives of Frances Grey and Jane Dudley.  I am looking forward to this one too!

Did you receive any books this week?

Mailbox Monday is on a monthly blog tour and for the month of February it is hosted by Metroreader.

  1. I'm definitely interested in reading "His Last Duchess" and will look forward to hearing your thoughts on the prequel (?). Here are my new acquisitions for the week: http://www.historicalfictionnotebook.com/2012/02/more-new-books.html

    1. It is definitely a sequel. The main character in The Courtesan's Lover leaves and goes to Napoli at the end of His Last Duchess. Courtesan's Lover is what transpires there.

  2. I can't wait to hear what you think of the new Susan Higginbotham novel. It's one of my most anticipated reads of 2012.

    1. I have only read one of Higginbotham's books so far - Queen of Last Hopes - but I really enjoyed that one. And this one looks to have such an interesting premise.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
