For whatever reason I‘m having trouble getting into My First Mistake, so I‘m setting that aside for awhile and going in the complete opposite direction: historical fiction! Philippa Gregory has never let me down before and I‘m hoping this kicks my reading into high gear!
I got this list from Philippa Gregory‘s website a while back. It‘s the list of her Plantagenet/Tudor novels in chronological/historical order rather than publication order. Sharing for a new Litten who ran into the series recently. Welcome, @Lauraandherbooks 📚💕
This is the third Philippa Gregory book I‘ve read, the other two were out of sequence but with this one I‘ve gone right back to the beginning of the series.
As with the others I enjoyed the enthralling story, full of intrigue and backstabbing (sometimes literally!) and I love learning about a time in history that I don‘t know enough about.
Thank you so much to @OrangeMooseReads for sending it to me; now on with the rest of the series....
Thank you so much for sending me this @OrangeMooseReads 😘
Now I can start on the series properly! I have read two already (Three Sisters, Three Queens and The Other Boleyn Girl) but I‘ve been collecting the others and wanted to read them chronologically- now I‘ve got this first one I can make a start!
...possibly even this weekend...!
And I love how your notecard matches the cover....😁
I have a question. So I‘m wanting to but a #Litjoy crate, but idk if I just want the book or the crate. I already have Owlcrate. Need your guys help! XD
I decided to read Philippa Gregory‘s Plantagenet and Tudor novels in chronological order rather than publication order when I found a bunch of them at the Friends of the Library sale. I really liked this one. I love books that inspire me to stop and learn about historical events. One down . . . lots more to go 😂
Finalllyyy starting this series, but being the weird history buff bookworm I‘m starting it in chronological order. Also I‘m obsessed with learning about royal families from their origins to the present. I‘m also procrastinating because i don‘t want to do anything but read this book. 😁#theladyoftherivers #bookworm #historybuff
This was a slow read for me, because I kept checking historical references to compare people and events portrayed with their historical counterparts. As with any book by this author, it is exceptionally researched. Jaquetta is a fascinating individual whose story I did not know. I‘m anxious now to read a The White Queen.
So it turned out that the cold was actually a strep infection! I‘m starting to feel better, but I have no voice. Big problem, since I‘m supposed to sing the Rossini cat duet this weekend. Hubby is being very considerate, so right now I‘m stretched out in the recliner with my cuddly throw and my book.
1. Lady of the Rivers. This keeps sending me to historical reference sources, because I‘m not up on the War of the Roses.
2. Local official caught in corruption scandal. There‘s a reason we‘re called Corruption County😕
3. No. Volunteering at botanical garden plant sale.
4. How many choral directors does it take to change a light bulb? Nobody knows, because nobody ever watches a choral director. I should know🤣
5. Will do!
Finally getting back to this after four days with our grandson here. Unfortunately, although he‘s gone, he apparently left his cold germs😂. So it‘s a steaming mug of tea to accompany my reading.
Finished The Lady of the Rivers (finally)! This period of English history has always fascinated me, and Philippa Gregory is the Queen when it comes to this time period. I don‘t really know what else to say except “on to the next!”

I really enjoyed this book. It's a fascinating time period and really interesting to see it from the women's perspective. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
Just amazing. :)
Just started reading this, I haven't read any of her work before but I loved The White Queen TV series.
3.5* Overall I enjoyed this book, a story based on the life of Jacquetta of Luxembourg. While the story started out and ended strong, much of it dragged on. It took me much longer than usual to get through. With a somewhat strong ending, my interest was piqued enough that I will read the next book, The White Queen. I am not certain how factual the book is, but the few things I checked were accurate, which made the story much more believable.
Just a great historical novel!!! Great pleasure reading it!!! The Cousins' War series. Book 1. ( the story of Jacquetta, Duchess of Bedford.)

Please , I need help! I don't know what to read next 😥 I just finished The Secret Garden and now I'm just lost and don't know what to read 😭😭😭😭

Jumping in to #rockinmay after my few days hiatus from Litsy, with #homebythesea . I used to live in an apartment overlooking this harbour cove, and it was one of my favourite places to take a book and read. This is the last book I read there before moving away to a home that was no longer near the sea!
Who started this? My new favourite thing when I start a new book is making the second line : And then the murders began.
"She sits, this odd trophy of war, as neat as an obedient child, on a small stool on the corner of her cell." And then the murders begin.
Later: this phenomenal phenomenon was started by https://twitter.com/marc_laidlaw - awesome idea!
