MAILBOX MONDAY

MAILBOX MONDAY is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Marcia over at The Printed Page.

You can visit her blog for more MM, and you can add your links right here as well!  If you do not have a blog, you can still share your loot from the last week!  Just leave it in the comments.

Last week I was VERY EXCITED to recieve "Heresy" by S. Parris.  Is this not a GEORGOUS cover??!!!
A HUGE THANK YOU to Barbara from PENGUIN GROUP (CANADA) for this stunner. 

Here is the blurb from Amazon.ca:

England is rife with conspiracies to assassinate Elizabeth I and return the country to Rome—plots that foment in places like the fiercely papist University of Oxford. Giordano Bruno—renegade monk, poet, scientist, and magician—arrives in London, fleeing the Roman Inquisition. Bruno believes that the Earth orbits the sun, and this alone could have him burned at the stake, but he also seeks a lost book of ancient truth, which he believes will end the Wars of Religion.



Bruno is recruited by Elizabeth's spymaster, Sir Francis Walsingham, and sent undercover to Oxford, but his mission is thrown off course by a series of grisly murders. Bruno suspects that the murderer is trying to send a message— but what and to whom? Stalking the killer through the shadowy cloisters of the colleges and back streets of Oxford, he soon learns that sometimes even the wisest men cannot tell truth from heresy.

Doesn't it sound GOOOOD?!

What was in YOUR mailbox this past week?
