Mailbox Monday #67

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another exciting edition of Mailbox Monday!

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?

  1. So glad you received Outlander -- hope you'll be joining the ranks of "Jamie" fans soon! Enjoy!

  2. I read Outlander in high school and enjoyed the changing up of the romance genre -- can't wait to see what you think of it!

  3. I am definitely checking my library for Mary of Carisbrooke! Congrats on the giveaway. :)

  4. I loved Outlander and I hope you enjoy it! Mary of Carisbrooke sounds interesting and haven't read much Charles I related.

  5. Joanne & Audra - I hear good things! Can't wait to read it.

    Lieder Madchen & Elysium - I haven't read anything about Charles I as far as I can remember. I am looking forward to this read.

  6. This book sounds great! I've been trying to get Outlander read for a few years now. I promised myself I would this year but haven't even started it yet. Lol.


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