In My Mailbox #22

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by Kristi @ The Story Siren. All links go to the Book Depository UK.

From NetGalley:

Despite historical fiction being one of my favourite genres, I find myself not having read any for months! This book can remedy that and if there's any historical figure who's going to attract me back into the genre, it's Marie Antoinette.

I've had an eye on reading this for a while and now NetGalley has given me the opportunity. The Victorian language of flowers is something I've always been interested in, so a novel set around that really appeals to me. 

Now to see what you all got this week! 


  1. Marie Antoinette! Now that's a classic!

  3. Becoming Marie Antoinette is my kind of read! Enjoy.

  4. I have Becoming Marie Antoinette too! We should read it together. :D It's always more fun to read historical fiction when you have someone to go WHAT IT DIDN'T HAPPEN LIKE THAT at!

    And I've been hearing SUCH good things about The Language of Flowers. My library's getting it so I didn't request from NetGalley, but I can't wait to see what you think!

  5. Becoming Marie Antoinette looks really good! I love historical fiction too! :)
