so, i don't know if i've mentioned this yet or not... but here goes.

i like to read historical fiction books, mostly pertaining to the court of Henry XIII

feel free to quit reading my blog now if you think i'm a total loser.
but... hey, it good to be well rounded.
my first one was The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory--- absolutely loved it, but the movie was a train wreck, you know... the one with Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Eric Bana (really, it was terrible, but i watched it anyway- twice)

so, last week i read this one
it was really good too,
it gets tricky trying to keep up with all the characters, the marriages and the mistresses,
but hey... thats how it was.

has anyone watched the tv series The Tudors???
any good?

like i said, they aren't everyones "cup of tea" but i do enjoy myself a good historical fiction from time to time. anyway, confession done. happy tuesday.


  1. Jacquelyn...I'm right there with you! My family teases me about my fascination! It began with The Other Boleyn Girl for me too. I own the movie even! I am currently in season 2 of Tudors from Netflix because I am so into it. You should check it out. I have to read this book you liked! Have a great day!!

  2. I've never seen The Tudors but have heard good things!

  3. I watch The Tudors! I'm on season Season 3. It's a pretty good show! I'm actually really fascinated with the whole Henry VIII saga!
