Since I’m doing a Tudor reading challenge this year, I thought I should write up a list of what books I’ve read.
Even I was a little surprised when I started putting this list together, just how many books I’ve read about this particular time period! Yes, I do know I’m obsessed, but … wow… !
So I decided to break it down into non-fiction and fiction books I’ve read…
So this is the list I can come up with… I remember reading a pretty good book about Richard III that is not on the list… but I can’t find any record of it :(.
This is a great place for you to start if you are interested in reading about the Tudors!
Most, but not all, I reviewed; but most of the reviews aren’t up on the site yet, but are on goodreads.
