Mailbox Monday (40)

The amount of books I've been picking up lately is starting to get ridiculous. I'm not really complaining, but I'm getting close. I just don't see how I'm going to find the time to read them all. Even so, I still get so excited every time I open my mailbox to package. Which is why I'm sharing all my finds on Mailbox Monday hosted by Book Obsessed for the month of July.
Mailbox Monday
Won from Historical Tapestry
The Summer Queen by Elizabeth Chadwick
I've heard SO many great things about Elizabeth Chadwick's books, but I've yet to read a single one. I'm so excited to finally have the chance. This one of hers is about Eleanor of Aquitaine, a Queen (times two!) that I thinks awfully fascinating.

For Review from Historical Fiction Book Tours
The Bequest of Big Daddy by Jo-Ann Costa
This is a historical fiction that takes place during the Civil War. I remember Lisa reading it, and it definitely has me intrigued.

From Goodreads
The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen
Out of all the ones I've won from Goodreads lately, this is the one I'm most excited about. It's a retelling of history asking, "What if Anne Boleyn had a son?"

The Wedding Gift by Marlen Suyapa Bodden
This is another around the Civil War. The title comes from a father giving his daughter a slave, Sarah, as a wedding gift.

For Review
Me on The Floor Bleeding by Jenny Jagerfeld
This is a YA book that I believe was first published in Sweden. Just from the title and cover, I'm awfully intrigued by it.
