I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it! I recently was approved on NetGalley for a few books and they all look like books that I would love..
Ruth's Journey by Donald McCaig:
I am SUPER excited about this book. This is the Mitchell estate authorized prequel to Gone With the Wind that follows Mammy. Around Easter I was re-reading GWTW but really I managed to read two chapters before I had to set it aside and concentrate on all the NetGalley books I had. Now I am going to continue re-reading it and also I have purchased Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley and Rhett Butler's People by Donald McCaig so that I can finally read those two books. Needless to say it is going to be a GWTW summer for me to prepare to read this book in the Fall.

Juliet's Nurse by Lois Leveen:
This is a re-telling of Romeo and Juliet but from the perspective of Juliet's nurse. It surprised me, as I normally wouldn't like a love story like R&J, but I really loved Romeo and Juliet. I am really looking forward to this.

Double Agent by Peter Duffy:
This is a book that according to the book description tells "the never-before-told tale of the German-American who spearheaded a covert mission to infiltrate New York’s Nazi underground in the days leading up to World War II—the most successful counterespionage operation in US history." I am always interested in learning more about WWII so once I saw this book I requested it right away.

Goebbels: A Biography by Peter Longerich:
This book had no description on NetGalley or any other website but clearly it is a biography of Joseph Goebbels by German professor/historian Peter Longerich. Once again as with the book above I am always looking to learn more about WWII and that also means the people who took part in what took place.
