Stacking the Shelves #26


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature co-hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality. It is a chance to showcase all the goodies you've collected throughout the week, whether they're bought on-line or in-store, an ARC or a final copy, borrowed from a friend or the library, physical or digital, etc. Never has my addiction been more obvious than when I am now keeping track of every single book I acquire.

Amazon
(Gift Cards from Momma are the best! I actually ordered this one quite a while ago; just had to wait a while on account of it not being released in the US until this month. Plus, it is also out of stock now, so if you did not order already...sucks to be you! Okay, that was kind of mean. But seriously, I am so psyched for this book.)

Do you think Richard III had his nephews murdered? Or was it Henry VII? Someone else? Share your opinion!

What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!
Sarah

  1. I have no idea about the princes...this part of English royal history is very foggy for me!

    I bought a book, but it wasn't for me. A friend at the library was after a copy of "Retreat with Honor" (fourth part in a Civil War history) that he could take home and read. After I told him used copies sold for $2.50 on Amazon, he gave me a tenner and asked if I could buy it for him. :)

  2. Hmm, I've heard this question bandied about I think but don't know enough to say! Although I suspect this book would solve that problem to an extent! :)

  3. I already commented about who did it on the other post. I do plan to read more on the subject so I'll be interested in what you think of this book!

    1. It's great so far, as I expected. I highly recommend it so far (and I doubt that will change!)

  5. I think Richard probably had them killed either directly or by a poorly worded command he regretted later - 'deal with them'.

    1. Agreed. Whether he meant it or not (much the way Elizabeth signed Mary, Queen of Scots death warrant but 'didn't mean it' *EYEROLL), I do think they were killed in the Tower. All of London was sure they had been killed, Richard could have maintained support by bringing the boys out to prove they were still alive.

      Nice haul, should keep you busy for a couple days, right??
