In My Mailbox [8]

It was Easter weekend, and I went a little crazy on books...

- Wondrous Strange and
- Darklight by Lesley Livingston (bought)
- The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig (bought)
- The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig (bought)
- Anxious Hearts by Tucker Shaw (bought)

Funny story on Anxious Hearts: it was definitely one of those "on a whim" buys...I remember seeing some of you featuring it as your "Waiting on Wednesday," but I'm not sure what it's about or anything! All I know is that the cover design is beautiful and it has something to do with love- - cute!

And these are my History books:

- Ancient Greece by Thomas Martin (bought for class)

- The Coming of the Third Reich by Richard J. Evans (bought for class)

- The Time-Traveler's Guide to Medieval England (bought because I'm a nerd)

And now...




Because I don't want to go bankrupt (let's save that fun for paying off student loans), I am not going to buy any more books until 10 May 2010. We'll see how that goes!

A really good friend of mine is reading the Willig series and she is hooked. She keeps telling me I need to read them, so I will eventually.

Good luck on not buying any more books! I have the same problem!

Oooo the Medieval England one sounds like fun!

Great books, including your history books! I would love to read all of them especially the one on medieval England. I understand the thing about buying on a whim...

Oooh, you got Wondrous Strange and Darklight! Can't wait to know what you think about it. Also, I hope you enjoy Willig's books. I read The Secret History of the Pink Carnation, and didn't enjoy much (but I know others do!)

Anxious Hearts sounds like a really good book. I'm hoping the inside lives up to the cover. Darklight is on my TBR list too.

I really hope that you like the Lauren Willig books. The first one was not my favorite although it did make me laugh and I enjoyed the rest of the series. The Time Traveler's Guide to Medieval England sounds fascinating to me. I took a class on Medieval Europe when I was in college and I really enjoyed it. We read Life ina Medieval Castle and some Ellis Peters Brother Cadfael mysteries too.
