The Last Queen: A Novel | C. W. Gortner
post image

#BookedinTime #SpanishInquistion

Juana was not raised to be a monarch but the untimely deaths of her elder sister and her nephew made her next in line to the throne upon her mother Queen Isabella‘s death. Gortner portrays a passionate woman who wants to do right by her country but kept in place as “mad” by her husband until his death and then her father. The Spanish Inquisition is mentioned but is not a main feature of this novel. 4 🌟

The Last Queen: A Novel | C. W. Gortner

I feel like I‘m 100% back in my normal reading groove so it‘s time to make plans. The tagged book is for #BookedinTime. I‘m actually going to finish it in the right month. 8 Lives is feeling lighter than the other WP books although I think the subject matter will be hard….so far they‘ve all been hard. Zorrie is for #SundayBuddyRead and I‘ll let my mood decide my next audio book.

What I hope to read in April. Some my choices; others buddy reads.

Suet624 I‘ve been trying to get The Nun for ages from Hoopla. I need to wake up at 2 am to grab it before the daily limit of the library is met. 3w

My choice for #BookedInTime this month is By Fire, By Water. I know very little about the #SpanishInquisition , so this should be an interesting read. @Cuilin

Cuilin I like the cover. This is a new to me era mostly too. 3w
julieclair @Cuilin Just fyi, I have created a challenge on StoryGraph to track my #BookedInTime reading. It‘s not a public challenge (so won‘t show up in searches on SG), but I can share the link with other people. Do you think any of our other Booked-in-Timers might like to use that? 3w
Cuilin @julieclair yes! Sounds fantastic!! 3w
julieclair @Cuilin Great! Here‘s the link: https://app.thestorygraph.com/reading_challenges/f6f6ac21-909a-4d7e-9e1c-2084aab... I‘ll create another post (maybe tomorrow) and tag everyone. 3w

March Reads

I read 5 of the #WomensPrize fiction long lists and 2 of the Nonfiction longlist

My #BookedInTime book Princes of Ireland was 775 pages so that slowed me down a bit.

I read 2 books for the #TransRightReadathon

My favorite read of the month is tagged.

I hope I can keep up. I didn't even add #BookedinTime because I haven't even finished March's read yet. But of course I found time to make this l'il collage. 😅
