In My Mailbox (13)

Almost unfortunately I'm back participating in The Story Siren's In My Mailbox. Why unfortunately? Well, because I really didn't need to pick these up. I have more than enough books at the house TBR that I could probably go months without needing to buy a new book. But alas I gave in, at least to books I'd been planning on purchasing for a while, so I do know if I hadn't bought these now, I would have bought them later.
In My Mailbox
Light on Lucrezia by Jean Plaidy
A few months ago I read the first book of Plaidy's Borgais series. This is the second and final book of the series, so at least I don't have any more books in this particular series to read. Although they are definitely some other Plaidy books I still want to book up. I know I've said it again & again, but if you enjoy historical fiction and you haven't read anything by Jean Plaidy, you are missing out.

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
I know there are going to be people out there amazed I've waited so long to buy this book. I know once I start and I'm going to devour it and wonder just how I waited so long. And yes, I did pick up the version with Jace's letter to Clary.

The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory
I've been planning on picking this one up almost forever. It was just released in paperback, so I figured it would be a great time to pick it. I have read quite a bit on the War of the Roses, but nothing specifically on Margaret Beaufort, so I'm excited to finally read this one as well.

Now at least you can understand the reasons I gave into temptation. Hopefully (or hopefully not!) you were able to avoid it as well this week. Either way, let me know what landed in your mailbox this week.


  1. I'm really sad my copy doesn't have the letter, I really would love to have that copy.

    Happy reading

  2. Great set! Yay for COFA. I loved it.

  3. I have way too many books to read too but I just cant resist buying more!
