Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments What book about the Tudors or Tudor England would you like to have as our Group Read in November?

If it's in a series, can it be easily read as a stand-alone? If not, you might want to nominate the first book in the series, or the most recent book in it the group has not read together.

Can't remember what we've already read as a group? (Sometimes I can't, either.) There's a "group-reads" shelf on the group Bookshelf.

Two nominations to a person, please.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments We read Queen's Gambit last December, Stephanie.

Skye, Stormbird and Margaret of Anjou both look very early for this group. (They look right up the Plantagenet group's alley, though!)

Skye | 484 comments All right, Susanna; I suspected that might be the case.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments Anyone have any last minute nominations? I'll be starting a poll later today.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments I will nominate How To Be a Tudor: A Dawn-to-Dusk Guide to Tudor Life by Ruth Goodman, and The Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England, by Ian Mortimer.

And now I will go start a poll.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments The poll is now open, either on the bottom of the group's home page, or through this link: https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1... .

Jackie | 21 comments Love the top two choices this time! However, did I see it correctly that Game of Queens doesn't arrive at Amazon until November 29?

Yes, from checking US and UK Amazons, it's out in the UK, and will be published in the US in November. This could be ... problematic for quite a lot of us.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments Well, I could slot it in for December, and give November to whatever finishes second, I guess. Or give it both November and December? (In both cases if it's the winner, obviously.)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments I have decided to give Game of Queens: The Women Who Made Sixteenth-Century Europe, which was indeed the winner, both November and December.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments We will be discussing Game of Queens here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... .
