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, but for the month of December MM is on tour and hosted by Rose City Reader.  Yours truly will be the MM host for April!

Hey all!  I hope you are all doing fabulously!  I only have one addition to my TBR mountain to report, but it's a good one!  I won a copy of Stephanie Dray's Lily of the Nile from my girl Liz at Historically Obsessed and I received it this weekend and it was sweetly signed by the author!  Thanks Liz and Stephanie, I'm really looking forward to reading it!

Lily of the Nile
by Stephanie Dray

Publication Date:  January 4, 2011


With her parents dead, the daughter of Cleopatra and Mark Antony is left at the mercy of her Roman captors. Heir to one empire and prisoner of another, Princess Selene must save her brothers and reclaim what is rightfully hers...

In the aftermath of Alexandria's tragic fall, Princess Selene is taken from Egypt, the only home she's ever known. Along with her two surviving brothers, she's put on display as a war trophy in Rome. Selene's captors mock her royalty and drag her through the streets in chains, but on the brink of death, the children are spared as a favor to the emperor's sister, who takes them to live as hostages in the so-called 
lamentable embassy of royal orphans...

Trapped in a Roman court of intrigue that reviles her heritage and suspects her faith, Selene can't hide the hieroglyphics that carve themselves into her flesh. Nor can she stop the emperor from using her for his own political ends. Faced with a new and ruthless Caesar who is obsessed with having a Cleopatra of his very own, Selene is determined to honor her mother's lost legacy. The magic of Egypt and Isis remain within her. Can she succeed where her mother failed? And what will it cost her in a political game where the only rule is
win or die? 

That's my mailbox!  What goodies came your way?



  1. I really need to read this book! Maybe in the next month! My January mailbox is here

  2. I know I have already said this, but you are going to loooove it :)

    Have a great week, Amy!

  3. This sounds very interestine, I'll be looking for your review. I love the cover!

  4. It's always so cool to win autographed copies of anything LOL--Congratulations!

    No fiction in the mailbox today, but some of the really fascinating research materials for my WIP came--especially "The Women's War in the South: Recollections and Reflections of the American Civil War" and "Women and New Orleans - A History" so I may not be reading fiction for a week or so (unless I get a chance to finish "The Scarlet Pimpernel" on Kindle for Android; somehow I missed reading this in school and reading Lauren Willig has sent me back to the original LOL)

  5. I have got so behind my posts that I could not post my Mailbox. I got By Fire By Water from the author himself and am so delighted.

  6. I've been seeing this one all over the place and I'm jealous! Happy reading!

  7. I can not wait to dive into this one...

  8. What a yummy-looking book. Just can't wait to get a chance to read it!
