Mailbox Monday #184


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:

  • Why We Are At War: Messages to the Congress by Woodrow WIlson - this was picked up for my research project - these are messages given to Congress by President Woodrow Wilson
  • With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin - this one was a whim purchase - mostly on the cover and the subject matter.
  • Woodrow Wilson and the World War by Charles Seymour - another book for my research project. 

    And that is it for me - not too bad in the last months I would say!  What did you get in your mailbox?
