More than halfway through! I am having to read this with a dictionary at hand because there are many words I am unfamiliar with, and some that apparently don't even exist. 'Waffeting', I am looking at you.

What incredible writing. I heard Mantel interviewed on CBC The Next Chapter and she is brilliant.

It did take me a while to get started and figure out what the heck was going on. Now I am all in! May the #conqueringcromwell continue...

#weeklyforecast @Cinfhen
Finish 1st read of You Were Born For This (it's a good book but will need multiple reads to get the most of it)
Finish The Nickel Boys and The Book Thief

Continue The Italian

Start Wolf Hall.

Cinfhen Ohhhhh, good luck with #ConqueringCromwell 🥳🥳😘 2y
cajunsyd The Nickel Boys was one of my favorite reads of 2020. Enjoy!! 2y

Mehso-so

I finally finished Wolf Hall!! I started this back in March (I think?) as part of the #ConqueringCromwell buddy read and clearly was not successful. There were too many characters and threads to keep track of, it all just ended up much too complex for me. I won‘t be continuing with the series but am happy I did read this one as the writing was quite excellent.

Final book for my #DashingDecember goal!

Andrew65 Well done 🍾🥂🍾🥂😊 2y
MsMelissa I love this book (the whole trilogy is incredible), but I can understand others not feeling the love. 2y

Somehow I have the living room to myself. So classical Christmas on the Pandora and diving back into Wolf Hall. #conqueringcromwell

I love these monthly readathons from @Andrew65 and I‘m looking forward to #NovelNovember!

Keeping my goals simple - I want to finally finish Wolf Hall (which I started during the #ConqueringCromwell buddy read...) and finish my two library holds that I can‘t renew.

Andrew65 Love the sound of that Buddy Read 😍 Good luck 😊👍 2y

I‘ve been distracted with other reads, so back to this amazing book. I think I‘m dragging my heels as I know how it ends from reading history. 🪓🩸🩸 😭 #conqueringcromwell

Finally #conqueringcromwell Incredibly detailed ,you feel you are there.Lush description gives you a feeling of what it was like to live in Tudor times , political & religious intrigue, fates changed in a moment by a king who would rather disrupt the religious order of England than stay married to his wife , with Cromwell as his chief enabler .Not a light read , by any means, you must jump in & become immersed in it.Beware the sweating sickness.😱

MrsMalaprop I was just talking about this book to my husband yesterday, telling him it was hard work (for me anyway). 2y
rubyslippersreads I‘m so behind on #conqueringcromwell 😏 2y
Leftcoastzen @MrsMalaprop it is difficult! Some do give up. How many people CAN you have named Thomas and Anne? And the “he “pronoun “he “who, what , oh.Sometimes I‘d get in the right grove to enjoy it.😀 2y

Leftcoastzen @rubyslippersreads I‘m feeling behind too. It will be a bit till I get to 2y
CarolynM Yes "He"! I'd find myself reading a page or more thinking she was talking about the man last referred to only to realise she meant Cromwell and I'd have to go back and reread? I forgive her though, I think it's a brilliant book. 2y
SamAnne I‘m almost done and am sucked in. Plan to read Bring Up the Bodies next month. 2y
batsy Great review! 2y
batsy @rubyslippersreads I'm behind, as well! I've only read WH and meant to read Bring Up the Bodies before the 3rd one came out and, well, that didn't happen 😆 2y

This week‘s #bookishplanner spread. I have to say I think #YAApril and #childrensclassicread2020 will be less daunting than #conqueringcromwell. 😏 #happyplanner #bookjournal #readingplanner
