message 1: by Lyn (Readinghearts), The mod of last resort/Mod #3 (last edited Nov 09, 2010 12:14PM) (new)


Darkpool (protesting GR censorship) (Darkpool) | 61 comments Would The Tyrannicide Brief: The Story of the Man Who Sent Charles I to the Scaffold meet the criteria for the group?
This book has been recommended to me by a RL friend - I'd not long finished the Marie Antoinette when she mentioned it, so it seemed relevant, and I immediately added it to my tbr list. On the minus side, it's over 400 pages...

As are most of these books, Darkpool. History just seems to lead to big books. I would say that it fits as it has to do with Charles I, who was Royalty.

My nomination is going to be The Eagle and the Raven by Pauline Gedge


message 6: by Thalia (new)

Thalia | 64 comments My nomination is The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell. It's a book about King Arthur if that's okay.


message 7: by Storm (new)

Storm (StormGerlock) My vote is definitely going to The Winter King. I sure hope King Arthur stuff counts. :D

Rose - Arthur stuff definitely counts, and Thalia - I love Bernard Cornwell.


message 9: by Keith (new)

Keith (Germanicus) I love books about Arthur, so my vote is for The Winter King


message 10: by Storm (new)

Storm (StormGerlock) Yay! I'm excited now!

Just a reminder, though, the voting will be done in a poll in about a week or so. Right now we are just taking suggestions.

Good one Kate. I can't wait to read this one.


message 15: by Thalia (new)

Thalia | 64 comments Already in this group there is a planned "buddy read" of Mists starting January 1st. You'll find the link easily under the "myth" heading on the History of Royals home page.

Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) | 1546 comments Mod
That is the case, Thalia, but it will still be on the poll as an official nomination for the current group read. If enough people want to read it, we will do it as the December/January read instead of a buddy read.


message 17: by Thalia (new)

Thalia | 64 comments oh by all means, I just meant that another book can still be chosen and reading "Mists" will still be available starting in January. If we chose it as the group read I will not be able to join until January as was the case with the others that had discussed setting up the buddy read. But I'm not saying don't pick it, it's a great book...this will be my fourth time reading it since publication....lol...just explaining myself...badly...lol

Sorry, I think I did misunderstand. In fact, I am one of the ones planning on reading it in January with all of you on the buddy read,so I wouldn't have started it before then either, lol.

I, myself, am in a Boudica mood. We shall see!

That's what we like, Alexandria. Persistence.


FYI Everyone - the voting poll will go up tomorrow.


message 20: by Kate. (new)

Kate. | 174 comments OOO...That ones does look good Alexandria and its only 336 pages , bonus !

I have no idea what to nominate this time so I guess I'll go with the one I've just started reading Unicorn's Blood by Patricia Finney.

I'm not sure if you're looking for one or two noms, Lyn, so if you'd like an extra one, I'll go with The Spanish Bride: A Novel of Catherine of Aragon by Laurien Gardner.


message 22: by Lyn (Readinghearts), The mod of last resort/Mod #3 (new)

Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) | 1546 comments Mod
And the winner is:

Four Queens: The Provencal Sisters Who Ruled Europe by Nancy Goldstone.

Thanks for the nomination and your persistence, Alexandria!

Lisa, the polls are closed and the winner is The Four Queens. You can nominate The Winter King for the next group read if you want.

Lisa Bass (lisadbass) | 14 comments Sorry!

No prob. Sorry you missed the voting. Hope you like the book we chose, and please nominate The Winter King when we open nominations for Feb/March :)
