Elyse Removed "I, the Sun". It is historical fiction.

Hello Saturday - I removed the books you requested. I also found some to remove on my own. Looks like some people don't know that historical fiction is not non-fiction. I'll keep my eye out for others.

Saturday's Child Once again thank you Elyse, I really appreciate your assistance. I have added a note to the top of the list which might help. As I read non-fiction about the royals I like to see what other readers have added. There are lists for fiction and royals so I like to keep them separated. :)
P.S. Looks like number 67 - The Other Queen and 90 The Winter Crown are both novels.

Got 'em. I think part of the problem is that two excellent authors, Alison Weir and Antonia Fraser, write BOTH non-fiction and historical fiction. Voters aren't taking the time to distinguish which is which between the two. I think your note will help.


message 7: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Thanks Elyse you are a star. That is a valid point you make when authors write in both non-fic and historical fic.
