Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1979 comments What book about the Tudors or Tudor England would you like to have as our Group Read in June 2018?

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.

Susan (suereadsbooks) I will nominate

I have not read either authors before but the lives of Henry's sisters are very interesting.
