The second to last scheduled Mailbox Monday of 2013 – and I went a little Netgalley crazy this week (all 4 are from Netgalley).
This weeks selections are primarily set in the United States and evenly split between fiction and non-fiction.
- Mrs. Lincoln’s Rival by Jennifer Chiaverini – this is the sequel to Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker. I’m very interested in this one, because I didn’t realize that she had a rival.
- Revolutionary by Alex Myers – this is the one that I actually began my Netgalley search for (which resulted in all these books). This novel focuses on Deborah Sampson, a woman who posed as a man to fight in the American Revolution. I remember reading about her in school and when I heard about this book on Reading the Past, I had to get it.
- War and Gold by Kwasi Kwarteng – This is a non-fiction. War and gold have pretty much gone hand in hand throughout time. I look forward to what this book puts forth.
- Sex and the Founding Fathers by Thomas A. Foster – Another non-fiction, looking at the romantic and familial relationships of America’s Founding Fathers.
And now that is it for me, what about you?
