OK, so I've never done one of these before, but since I bought a ton of exciting books recently, I wanted some place to show them off! :)
The Secret Bride: In the Court of Henry VIII by Diane Haeger
I'm really excited for this one, as it's about Princess Mary, Henry VIII's sister, a character I've been dying to read more about. This one focuses about her marriage to both the King of France and Charles Brandon.
The Life of Elizabeth I by Alison Weir
LOVE Alison Weir! I realized that I've read so much about the Tudors, but have somehow neglected Elizabeth! Wanting to differentiate fact from fiction, I thought I'd turn to my all-time favorite historian.
The Children of Henry VIII by Alison Weir
Yeah yeah, another Alison Weir book. I'd heard raves about this book from the Tudor History Lovers group on goodreads, and it was only $2.50, so why not? Besides Edward, Mary, and Elizabeth, Lady Jane Grey is also thrown in here, which should be interesting.
Eleanor of Aquitaine has always interested me. I tried a non-fiction on her first, but was a bit overwhelmed. I figured a Jean Plaidy fiction novel was a good place to start!
Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
My blogger friend Tahleen sent this book to me! I know basically nothing about Cleopatra, so this should be an interesting read. I'm less that 100 pages into it and have found out so many cool facts!
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks
Required reading that is fun! I have to read this for my Physiological Psychology class, but it'd been on my TBR list for a long time, so it's a treat to read this! (Boo for it being $15 from the school bookstore though).
