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 2017?

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's Bookshelf.

Two nominations to a person, please.

Samuel | 1 comments Black Tudors by Miranda Kaufmann


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments Seconding is not necessary, so you still have two nominations, Samuel.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments Black Tudors: African Lives in Renaissance England has an expected publication date in the middle of next month - let's hold that one until next time. (Sounds very interesting, though.)

Miranda Kaufmann | 1 comments Black Tudors is actually being published on 5th October in the UK, - the November date is the US one.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments Got you. OK, that's fine, then.

I read The Other Boleyn, I might enjoy revisiting that book, good call! There was a film named The Other Boleyn Girl, do you know if this based on the book?

Hi, are these biographies or histories? After a historical novel (October's choice), it would be nice to take a documentary perspective...I went to Hever Castle! I bought a replica of the famous three pearl necklace she wears in a painting - at the Tower gift shop of course, where she lost her head...

Malacima | 1 comments I nominate George Boleyn: Tudor Poet, Courtier and Diplomat although it's a biography
...like Linda Arroz said 'it would be nice to take a documentary perspective'.....
House of Beaufort: The Bastard Line that Captured the Crown
Personally, I'm already a little bit boring to read all the time about Anne Boleyn... I'm sure there are other historical characters in the time of Tudors. I may have missed some earlier suggestions ... I'm new to this forum ... do not mind me

Hi, Linda- I picked the two books from ones I have in my bulging Tudor Kindle library that I haven't read yet. I think of all of them as biographies. That's very exciting that you went to Hever Castle, home of the Boleyns. I didn't get to hit that particular place when I went to England, but did visit the Tower of London and Hampton Court.

You still have a nomination, Heather, as The Raven's Widow has already been nominated. (Seconds are not necessary.)


*TUDOR^QUEEN* (on hiatus) (tudorqueen) | 35 comments Oh, I'm glad. The historical novels aren't so dry to read. Thanks for the clarification and the links.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments I think I will nominate The White Rose Murders by Paul Doherty, and Elizabeth's London: Everyday Life in Elizabethan London by Liza Picard.

Patricia | 1 comments I'd like to read The Raven's Widow for November.
On another note, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good books covering the life of Anne of Brittany? I tried to find a good historical fiction but haven't come across one. Authors out there, this seems like a good opportunity.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments Linda: The Other Boleyn Girl movie is based on the novel The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1928 comments The nominations are now closed, and I have opened the poll. You can find it on the bottom of the front page of this group, or here: https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1... .
