In My Mailbox (2)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. I always love seeing what everybody else got, all those nice and shiny new books :)

This is actually a massive IMM, telling you what I got in the last 4 weeks. And I took pictures with my ancient digital cam (3 megapixel), probably not the best quality... I went a little crazy at 2 booksales, which amounts to 19 bought books.

The Rose of Sebastopol - Katharine McMahon
Melissa Nathan - The Waitress (I think I actually already own this one in Dutch, but I'm not sure)
The Virgin's Lover - Philippa Gregory

Dutch version of Pilate's Wife - Antoinette May
Dutch version of Dreaming the Eagle - Manda Scott
Wolf Hall - Hilary Mantel

Daughter of Troy - Sarah B. Franklin
The Trouble With Magic - Madelyn Alt
