In My Mailbox #5

In My Mail Box is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi over at The Story Siren that displays what books other readers got in their mailboxes this week. This isn't a huge week for me. I haven't and probably will not have as much time to read as I would like in the next few weeks, so I didn't get as many books. However, I did get a few and this is what I got:

 
 
 

The Bad Queen: Rules and Instructions for Marie-Antoinette by Carolyn Meyer
Ten Cents a Dance by Christine Fletcher
The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper
Anastasia's Secret by Susanne Dunlap
The Last Good Place of Lily Odilon by Sara Beitia
Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson

All of these books are from the library. Lots of historical books this week. I read The Bad Queen, but I never finished it, not because I didn't like it or anything, just because I didn't have time. It was really good though and I am a huge fan of Marie Antoinette. I really want to read Ten Cents a Dance. The concept just sounds really good. I've wanted to read The Juliet Club for a while now because I'm a huge Romeo and Juliet fan and therefore love to read anything that has to do with the star-crossed lovers in any way, shape, or form. Anastasia's Secret looked really good, especially because I love European History. I saw The Last Good Place of Lily Odilon while I was browsing the shelves and decided to pick it up. Finally, Snow Falling on Cedars was recommended to me, so I decided to check it out. Anyway, that's what I got and I look forward to reading them :)

So, what's in your mailbox?

  3. I'm also fascinated with Marie Antoinette's history. The Bad Queen looks really good, I'll have to check it out. Also, Juliet Club would be something good for me to check out to see if I could add it to my independent study. Great lot of books! Enjoy :)

  7. I found Anastasia's Secret depressing and some scenes inappropriate.Of course her story is sad.So whatever.No offense to anyone. The top two look interesting.Sierra
