Mailbox Monday

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

I got a few historical fiction novels in the mail this week. I haven't actually purchased a book in almost a month and still I have received 11 books in the past 3 weeks! I finally decide to curb my book splurging a bit and simultaneously the book faeries at PBS decide to come out in full force as if to say "resistance is futile, you will be inundated". Arriving in my hot little hands this week are:

From PBS:

  • The King's Daughter by Sandra Worth
  • The Secret Bride: in the Court of Henry VIII by Diane Haeger

and passed along to me by a friend because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Monet:
  • Claude & Camille: A Novel of Monet by Stephanie Cowell

I can't wait to read this one as soon as I am done with the Serial Readers Challenge.
That is it for me this week. Hope everyone else had a mailbox overflowing with glorious books.

    I think it's better to have only a few books, or even just one book, in the mail, than a whole bunch of them.

    Then again, I'm biased because I have a huge stack of books that are no longer patiently waiting their turn to be read. They're going to mutiny soon, I know it!

    I also find that I miss the days when I went through life one book at a time--or, if I had to read stuff for uni, no more than two or three books at a time. Sometimes less really is more! We don't need big hauls to feel rich in reading; we just need the right book at the right time! ;)

  2. I have "A Secret Bride" and I am waiting for the mail to bring me "Claude and Camille", cant wait to read these books :) I will be looking forward to your reviews!

  3. These all look like great reads. A few great books are much better than a huge stack of mediocre books. Happy reading!

  4. ooh, lucky you to get Claude & Camille! Enjoy!

  5. You've got some fantastic looking books this week!

    Here's mine for this week.

  6. Enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by.

  7. I'm a huge fan of the French Impressionists and Historicals. That Monet book sounds incredibly intriguing despite my ever deeper mountains of books to read.

    My Mailbox is up at Bibliophile's Retreat.

  8. I'm also passing on an award. The details will be at the link above as soon as I finish the post.

  9. Oh, nice titles - I'm hoping to read the Monet book soon myself. I did read The King's Daughter last year and really liked it. Enjoy!

  10. Oh, I am so lusting after Claude and Camille! Have a great week and happy reading!

  11. I'd love to have The Secret Bride! I'm not fan of Sandra Worth but I have The King's Daughter and kinda liked it.

  12. That was so kind of the PBS book faeries to keep you supplied when you've otherwise cut back. LOL!

  13. Oh....I am so excited for you about Claude and Camille! You are going to LOVE it! I know I sure did!

    I also enjoyed The King's Daughter very much but have to read the Haeger.

    Happy Reading!
