Monday Mailbox

This past week's mailbox arrivals:

The Spanish Queen by Carolly Erickson came from St. Martin's Griffin.

The Tudors are always a fascinating subject to me and while Catherine of Aragon was Henry VIII's first queen, she is not often a focus, merely a speed bump on the way to Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I. I am interested to see this take on this first of Henry's wives.

Flirting With French by William Alexander came from Algonquin Paperbacks and Library Thing Early Reviewers.

Learning a language as an adult is a booger and I can't wait to see Alexander tackle French.

Last Train to Babylon by Charlee Fam came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.

Somehow this book about a young woman who keeps suicide notes ready just in case, and the former friend who actually does kill herself brings to mind the black humor of the movie Heathers to me. I'm hoping the flavor comparison holds when I actually read it.

If you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Mailbox Monday and have fun seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.


  1. Last Train to Babylon is on my fall reading list. Hope we both love it! And you're right it does sound like it has sound like a dark comedy, perhaps a la Heathers.
    Flirting with French looks enticing too.
    Happy reading!

  2. I really liked Alexander's tomato book!

  3. All your books look good, especially Flirting with French.

  4. The Spanish Queen and The Last Train to Babylon look good.

    I hope they are good.

    Enjoy your reading week.
