Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia over at The Printed Page. It’s where we share with our blogging friends what showed up in our mailbox last week. I had a good week again but this should be slowing down soon as there is no where to put all these books anymore-lol.
Here’s my goodies from last week…
- Reading by Lightning by Joan Thomas (from Mini Book Expo)
- The House on Tradd Street by Karen White (very good deal at my bookstore)
- The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell (another good deal that very same day as the other one)
- The Mighty Queens of Freeville by Amy Dickinson (from Hyperion)
- The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory (a very nice gesture from my friend Bookfan-Mary)
- Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips (from Valerie at Hachette)
How about you-anything good land up in your mailbox last week?
I also received The House on Tradd Street. The Boleyn Diary book looks interesting.
I really want to read the Other Queen.
Wow, thats some great books in the mail. I love Philippa Gregory’s writing. And i’ve heard good things about Gods Behaving Badly.
Enjoy your reading.
What a great week in books! I received *The Mighty Queens of Freeville,* too. I think I’ll like it, as I tend to enjoy personal memoir.
*Gods Behaving Badly* looks very funny!
I received Gods Behaving Badly as well. But you’ll probably get to it first Dar at the rate I’m going lately!
I want to read The House on Tradd Street. Can’t wait to see how you like it.
What a good haul!
WOW – what a haul, girl. Every single one of those looks fantastic!
You’ve got a good stack of books there!
I loved The House on Tradd Street….looking forward to your review.
I have reading by lightning and gods behaving badly…i look forward to your take on them as well
I want to read that secret diary of anne boleyn and the other queen.
Hi Dar.. you got some great books!! I really really enjoyed the Secret Diary of Anne B. 🙂
Alyce, I’ve been wanting to read The Boleyn Diary since getting a recommendation for it ages ago. I’m going to fit it in for my challenges next year.
Mari, I’m anxious to get to it too.
Naida, Gods Behaving Badly has definitely been making its rounds. I really like Gregory’s writing too.
Dawn, Bree, yes it was a great week. Now just to find the time to read them all. lol.
Luanne, I wouldn’t bet on that. I’m not going at a great rate of speed right now either. lol.
Kathy, it does sound good. I still have one other of hers to read too one of these days.
Shana, that’s the problem isn’t it? They all look good-lol. That’s how I end up with the piles of books everywhere.
Serena, I’m going to read Lightning in January for the War Challenge. The rest I’ll get there someday.
Toni, that’s why I picked up the Boleyn Diary-cause you had liked it so much. 🙂

Red lady-Bonnie says
Hey Dar, you sure did get a lot of goodies! I have The Mighty Queens of Freeville and The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn on my TBR shelves.
The House on Tradd Street looks great, will look forward to your review!
I’m with you on running out of room for my books!! I only got 1 book last week but this week, I already have received 4 new books!!
You had the same thought I did…now did you officially sign up yet? I don’t see your post with reading goal! LOL
I still haven’t received my Reading by Lightning. I know it was you, me, and Serena who claimed it, and Serena has hers. I’m trying to be patient, but it’s a WWII book, you know. LOL
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Tradd Street. I loved that book!!
Diary of an Eccentric
J.Kaye-a stack is right but yes they are all good ones. lol.
Bonnie, I’ve wanted to read that Boleyn one for a long time. I was rearranging the book shelves today in the hopes of being able to stick in a few more books. Needless to say I have a bit more arranging to do yet.
Serena-you drill sargeant-lol. I signed up today. I already have another book to add. I think I’ll hold off a while though.
Anna, I laughed when I saw both of your names for that book. Should have known it would be the three of us if we could all get there first-thankfully there were 3 copies.
