A couple young adult medieval 🏰 novels of Philippa Gregory‘s to try.

Love love the show Merlin 🧙‍♂️; sad it no longer runs. It was a good wholesome show, featuring the friendship between Merlin and King Arthur!

Cinfhen I really dislike YA but maybe I should give this one a try 🤔 1mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen I‘m going to give these a try, because I tried reading her Wideacre book and had to DNF for content purposes. I really want to like Gregory; my sister loves her Tudor books. 1mo

Picked these beauties up today!

I tried Gregory‘s Wideacre novel and couldn‘t stomach the content, so I gave her up for lost. But when I spotted these and read the back cover, well, I think they‘ll redeem Gregory for me. Can‘t wait to give these a go!

Birdsong28 I love Philippa Gregory and even I found Wideacre a bit hard to swallow but it was her first novel so it will be a bit rough as her writing style hadn't been perfected but the rest of the series is good. It was a bit of shock as I had read her Tudor novels first and they were so good so I could tell the difference. I haven't read these as they are her YA series. Enjoy 😁📚📖 1y
Cheshirecat913 I saw these the other day and was tempted. 1y
CrowCAH @Birdsong28 good to know I wasn‘t the only one. I really want to like her work. My younger sister loves the Tudor books, so I‘m trying these books for her, so we can geek out about Gregory! 1y

For Philippa Gregory this somehow is not as great as her other historical fiction. Luca was an interesting and inquisitive man in Church, but the main star is of course Lady Abbess, who is the suspect/ victim in the book.
I like it, but not as much.

Just finished book 1, so I am counting each book as a separate one. I love the fact that the adventures so far are disputing religious “mysteries” by solving the mysteries to be explainable events. You have to put yourself into the 15th century mindset and remember that most everything was explained as God willed or due to sin.

This turned out to be a bit of an ordeal to get through. The storyline felt completely weak and disjointed, especially towards the end when it took a very unbelievable route that seemed completely unrelated to the rest of the story. I was hoping to finish the series before seeing Philippa Gregory talk but I don‘t know if I can do that to myself. #changeling #philippagregory #orderofdarkness

In preparation for seeing Philippa Gregory talk as part of her Dark Tracks tour at the start of February, I have begun my quest to read the first 3 instalments of the Order of Darkness series. I am a massive fan of her Tudor/War of the Roses series‘ so I am looking forward to finding out how her own stories compare to her historical fiction #Philippagregory #Darktracks #Orderofdarkness #Changeling #Stormbringers #Foolsgold #Sheffield

Anyone read this? It's been recommended to me but only has a 25% pick rating here on Litsy. 🤔 😕

I shall use this one for multiple challenges. #seductiveshakespeare - #puck according to all tales, is one of the more powerful fae. This book is about a supernatural being, quite probably of the fae family . @jenniferw8

#septembowie challenge, the main character truly embodies #rebelrebel . @Cinfhen & @Marchpane

#fallintobooks challenge - few books in my collection which have any #cursive on them. @RealLifeReading

I love Gregory's historical fiction (despite the heavy romance angle she takes), but this one was kind of flat. It's the first in a series, so it might pick up, but it's not to her usual level of storytelling.
