Singout Stacked! I was passionate about the Tudors back in the day, but don‘t know as much about the Stewarts. 2mo
TheIntrovertedDodoBird @Singout Enjoy! You should check out the new seven-part series called Mary & George that the book inspired. It's incredible and surprisingly very historically accurate! I was passionate about the Tudors in school. I love any book that nurtures that kind of passion, especially when it's my latest history obsession. Happy reading (and learning). 2mo

I really enjoyed Jonestown and devoured Waco as well. I like Guinn‘s writing style and the research he puts in to tell of past events in history. I remember hearing about the Waco siege but I was a senior in high school at the time and didn‘t pay much attention to news coverage then. Learning the details of this incident makes me ponder society both then and now.

Loving this historical picture of the Vanderbilt Family. What a bunch of eccentrics😁Photos from the 1883 Vanderbilt Ball in NYC. Yes, that‘s actually a cat that was taxidermy and worn on the head of Kate strong. The overskirt was made entirely of white cats‘ tails sewed on a dark background. The bodice was formed of rows of white cats‘ heads and the headdress was a stiffened white cat‘s skin. Her necklace read PUSS in diamonds. WTF 😳

Cinfhen It‘s DEFINITELY a #rabbithole #GoogleyBook 1y

Not sure yet... I‘ve passed halfway but am still vacillating between interested and impatient.
Good thing I‘ve got these library books for the Rest of Time...
