Wednesday reads... 17 Feb 2016

And then I realised that it was Wednesday...

What I've just finished reading:
The Kingmaker's Daughter, by Philippa Gregory
Netherwood, by Jane Sanderson
The Tempting of Thomas Carrick. by Stephanie Laurens
The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo

What I'm reading now:
The Queen's Choice, by Anne O'Brien
Epitaph for Three Women,  by Jean Plaidy
Blood Sisters: the hidden lives of the women behind the Wars of the Roses, by Sarah Gristwood
A Match for Marcus Cynster, by Stephanie Laurens

What I plan to read next:
The Virgin Widow, by Anne O'Brien
By Winter's Light, by Stephanie Laurens
The White Princess, by Philippa Gregory

And all of a sudden, I'm back into the historical fiction in a big way.  Laurens and Gregory have captured my imagination (with Gristwood as a non-fiction addition.)

Choices, choices.

Have I really not posted here since last June?  I'm so sorry!

I finished Philippa Gregory's "The Kingmaker's Daughter" today. I have many many thoughts on this book, and hope to get to writing a review of this book very soon. Meanwhile, the choice for next read is between:
- the next in Gregory's Cousin's War series, "The White Princess"
- Anne O'Brien's Anne of Warwick novel, "The Virgin Widow", or
- the Anne O'Brien I have from the library, "The Queen's Choice", which is a two-generation jump backwards to Joanna of Navarre. 

Also I just bought Sarah Gristwood's "Blood Sisters", a non-fiction book about a number of the women involved in the Cousins' War.
