Well, this is the first Mailbox Monday for quite some time - the first of 2015! And I have a few to share - just a few. Mostly I haven't been as conscientious as I should be about responding to emails in general - but with another snow day today, I emptied that inbox-and added a bunch of additional books!
The majority of the books are for review and were received from the publisher or author:
- Elizabeth I and Her Circle by Susan Doran - I don't tend to read too much about Elizabeth, but this could be enlightening.
- The Oxford Illustrated History of World War Two edited by Richard Overy - I'm currently reading the Illustrated World War One book for my history class, and when I saw this one for review on Netgalley, it felt meant to be.
- Rodin's Lover by Heather Webb - currently reading this one and it is SO good! I love art fiction.
- Romantic Outlaws by Charlotte Gordon - I saw this one on someone's Facebook page and it sounded interesting - although I know NOTHING about the subject.
- September Sky by John A Heldt - I LOVE the work of this author - and although I am 1 or 2 books behind, I had to get on this one too. Check him out!
- Sisters of Shiloh by Kathy and Becky Hepinstall - I accidentally got this in both physical and e-copy - that's how excited I was about this one!
- The Dyeing Room by Robert T McMaster - I met this author in my previous hometown and loved him. He grew up and writes about the area in which I was living and I loved that I could learn about it through his novels.
- The Prices of Blood by Patricia Bracewell - I love 11th century England and Queen Emma. I have Bracewell's earlier novel (still to read) and I had to pick up this one, and maybe read them back to back.
- The Yanks are Starving by Glen Craney - This is a novel that I picked up because it is based on the the area that I am currently studying - but in a niche I don't know anything about, The Bonus Army.
These other books were purchased by me:
And that is it for me - not too bad in the last months I would say! What did you get in your mailbox?
