Yeah, you put The Kings Rose, on your list, I haven't read it, yet, its sounds really good, maybe it'll be one of the books on the list of the Hoarder's Challenge. I love books about the Tudors, or other royalty.

message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

You do?
I love Royal History books!
Have you read any Phillipa Gregory books?

message 16: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (wondrousreadings) I read the first one in the series, I'm planing on reading the others soon as they are shipped to me, I got them from ebay. I can't wait. C: Have you read them?

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

I've read many of Phillipa Gregory's books, some are better than others. My favorite was The Other Boleyn Girl. Most recently I read The Other Queen, not her best work.

I'm looking forward to reading the Kings Rose...

That was a random buy at an Exclusive Books sale. With a cover like that I just couldn't leave it behind!
Plus it looks totally mad (in a good way).

Lauren Smith Book Depository has it for just over $12 (Roughly R90, at the moment). Use the version of the site if you want the cover with the words all over it.
