Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1982 comments What book about the Tudors or Tudor England would you like to have as our Group Read in August 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.

Christine Cazeneuve | 23 comments I would like to nominate The Sisters of Henry VIII by Maria Perry and The Hidden Lives of Tudor Women by Elizabeth Norton. Thanks.

Kimberly | 2 comments It's not historical fiction but I would like to nominate Guy, John. Elizabeth: The Forgotten Years. The book was named a Costa Biography Award Finalist.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1982 comments We read John Guy's Elizabeth: The Forgotten Years in April 2017. (Excellent book.)

Susan (suereadsbooks) I will nominate 'Will' by Christopher Rush. It offers a wonderful evocation of late Tudor England as William Shakespeare lies dying, dictating his will to his lawyer . It is a wonderful monologue taking the reader from his humble beginnings in Stratford to the heights of his success in London.

April | 1 comments I would like to nominate The Hidden Lives of Tudor Women by Elizabeth Norton

Christine Cazeneuve | 23 comments April, I nominated that book as well but apparently it was read by the group this past February. Guess we will have to read it on our own :)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1982 comments The threads are still open, for anyone who wants to read a previous month's choice. (Look further down here in the "Group Reads" section.)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1982 comments If anyone has a nomination they would like to make, now would be a good time to make it, as I'll probably be opening the poll later today.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1982 comments The poll is now open. You'll find on the front page of the group, at the top of the Polls section, or here: https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1... .


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 1982 comments If voting closed now (which it does not), the winner, by 1 vote, would be Blood Will Tell: A Medical Explanation of the Tyranny of Henry VIII.
