Book Drunkard

“I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.” L.M. Montgomery

Mailbox Monday


The start of another week and another lovely bunch of books to report.  I always feel so privileged when they arrive at my door or get put in the box – author’s trusting me with their babies.

I received four books last week:

From Helen Castor, I received She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth.  I’m really excited about this one – it’s right up my alley!  It was published in the UK last October and will be available in Canada and the US next month!  Watch out for my review.  And for more info, here is the link to Helen’s website.

Bronwyn from Penguin here in Canada sent me a different sort of book than I usually read, but it sounds interesting.  With a tagline line “There is no problem a library card can’t solve” how could I resist?  The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown tells the story of three sisters who find out, when they return home to care for their ailing mother, that they have more in common then they ever thought.

Sourcebooks sent me a book my Mary Ellen Dennis based on the famous poem, The Highwayman.  The Landlord’s Black-Eyed Daughter comes out in April, so check back then for my review on that one.  You can find out more about Mary Ellen on the Sourcebooks website.

Last but not least, C.W. Gortner sent me his book The Tudor Secret.  Ohhh, it looks so good.  Who doesn’t want to read a “Fast-moving tale of espionage and suspense…”?  Also, I love, LOVE the cover of this book – it’s so intriguing.  Review coming soon.

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

This month, Mailbox Monday is hosted by Rose City Reader.
