Mailbox Monday

Another Monday, Another Mailbox!! This is a feature where we all share with each other the yummy books that showed up at our doors! WARNING: Mailbox Mondays can lead to extreme envy and GINORMOUS wishlists!!

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

It's been a while since I've been able to participate in a Mailbox Monday, so am I glad to be back!  Let's hope that my mailbox draught is officially ovah!

Juliet by Anne Fortier
(acquired via Ballantine Books)

SYNOPSIS:  Of all the great love stories ever told, hers is perhaps the most famous. To me, she is the key to my family's fate. To you, she is Juliet.

When Julie Jacobs leaves for Italy per the instructions of her late aunt's will, she never imagines that she'll be thrust into a centuries-old feud, not to mention one of the most legendary romances of all time. However, as she uncovers the story of her ancestor, Giulietta, whose love for a man named Romeo proved ill-fated, Julie finds herself increasingly under threat, and can't help but feel that the past and present are very much connected. Juliet is a gripping historical novel of great passion and scope from a remarkable debut author.

Georgette Heyer's Regency World by Jennifer Kloester
(acquired via Sourcebooks)

SYNOPSIS:  Georgette Heyer fans will delight in Jennifer Kloester’s definitive guide to her Regency world: the people, the shops, clubs and towns they frequented, the parties and seasons they celebrated, how they ate, drank, dressed, socialized, voted, shopped and drove. A fun read for any Heyer fan.

So, what goodies showed up in your mailbox?




  1. I got Juliet, too! (And a bunch of others :) Here's my Mailbox.

  2. These look great Amy! I know what you mean about the dry mailbox. Although I have plenty to read at home, it is still sad when I don't receive any books! lol

  3. I was excited to have received Juliet too. I have yet to read a Georgette Heyer book. I have some on my wish list. I just need to pick one and try her out! Do you have a favorite to recommend?

  4. Jo-Jo: I'd have to say that Faro's Daughter has been my favorite so far with her Regency Romances. But for her mysteries I enjoy Behold, Here's Poison. I really need to get to more of hers soon, it's been a while. But her books are just so witty and fun - you'll enjoy her!

  5. It's nice to have a small mailbox load,sometimes though isn't it?! hope you enjoy them!
    I'll be waiting for your thoughts on Juliet.

  6. This is the first I've seen of the Regency World book.

  7. the cover for Juliet is beautiful!
    And I must grab a copy of Regency World, it sounds interesting.

  8. Great mailbox, I have had my eye on both of these. I hope you enjoy them.

  9. The Georgette Heyer's World book sounds interesting.
