White Princess
White Princess | Philippa Gregory
34 posts | 80 read | 46 to read
From "queen of royal fiction" (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory comes this instant New York Times bestseller that tells the story of the remarkable Elizabeth of York, daughter of the White Queen, and mother to the House of Tudor. When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house--Elizabeth of York--to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades. But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III--and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York. Henry's greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Happy new year to all!!! I‘m really enjoying listening to this book! I never thought I would just simply because I love to read, to hold the book in my hands and just get all absorbed in the story , but I‘m finding myself doing the same in this manner as well! Great books are worth owning, and I will still be looking to buy the book, also because it is part of a series!!!

Just binged the Starz version of the book. And got a lot done on a sock (Democratic Debates helped too). I honestly can't remember if the series was close to the book. I enjoyed watching it unlike the last period show/movie I watched (Mary, Queen of Scots).

Not my favorite of the series, but still a pick. I liked the author note at the end explaining what was unknown and why she chose the narrative she did. Moving on to the next one . . .

The White Rose is the 5th book in the Cousin‘s War, this tells the story of Elizabeth, Princess of York (daughter of King Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville). A pawn in the war of roses, she‘s forced to Marry King Henry VI in the attempt to unite the house of Tudor and York, finding herself in the precarious position of being the daughter of one king, wife to another and mother to a third. Wonderful read and audio is terrific!

Good read with Gregory's take on what happened to the princes in the tower. I'm not sure she was fair to Henry VII though. I think he was probably not such a whiney mama's boy.

So this book was a birthday gift and barely today I had the chance to read it. Once I started reading it I was consumed and started binge reading it till the end. Such a good book, and the story line has many twist and turns just amazing :)

Took me waaay longer than it should have to get through this book but I suppose that is what happens when you can't stick to one thing.
First Gregory book I've read (and I'm sure I'll read more) and the writing style was not exactly my favorite. But it was easy to get sucked into.
Started off depressing, the middle was depressing, and the ending...depressing.
Good stuff!

Sydsavvy Lol yes! 2y

Goodwill book haul #2. This #littlefreelibrary is free for everyone but me. 😂I'm glad the books are so popular but very few people are putting any in. The children's books are getting wiped out. So now I'm sticking to paperbacks for $.79. I don't understand why kids and adult paperbacks are the same price. 🤔On the brighter side, I found out books with a pink sticker are half price-$.40 for a book! #junetunz #ruletheworld

LectricSheep Do you think it would be a bad idea to put a sign out front saying something like "Hooray! The LFL is so popular that we're running out of books! Please feel free to bring any books you think others would enjoy!" Maybe people don't...know how it works? ? Or they don't realize you're restocking it? 3y
Cinfhen I love that you're #payingitforward #yourule 😘😘😘I think @LectricSheep made a good point...maybe some subtle hints might encourage others to be as generous 3y
Jaimelire Nice! Good books in that pile (edited) 3y

Mdargusch Update: @Cinfhen and @LectricSheep - I just went and checked and had new children's books and 3 adult books added! I'm so excited. I will definitely follow your advice though, great idea. 3y
LectricSheep Awesome! Maybe it just took a bit for people to bring stuff over. 👍🏻 3y

LeahBergen It may take people a while to remember it's there. I drop off about 15 books at my local one at once but usually only every 3 months or so. 😃 3y

readinginthedark You don't live near St. Louis, do you? I have a whole box I'm planning to take to LFLs next week! 3y
emilyhaldi So fun that people are dropping off books!! I agree with @LeahBergen - maybe once the summer picks up a little you will see more donations 😁 3y
Mdargusch Darn @readinginthedark, no. I live up by Lake Erie. 3y

I finally finished! 500+ pages! I really enjoyed this. I wanted to finish before the Stars series ended. I'm glad I did. The book is so different! As with all historical fiction, the Authors Note is so informative! I like the idea that the boy wouldn't want to hurt his wife, or Elizabeth. It made me want to learn more about Henry VII. #LitsyAtoZ #theletterg #g @BookishMarginalia

I'm currently watching these series (that are, of course, based on books). Anybody else watching these? What other book-inspired series are you watching? 📚❤️📺

Dragon Waiting for Outlander and GoT to start their new seasons. I also love Call the Midwife. 3y
Marmie7 I just started watching The Three Musketeers. It's really good so far. 3y

Getting back to my reread/listen if this series. I must say even though I'm happy they are making TV series of these books, I despise having my covers changed from the original to the production poster.

Joriebooks I agree. The originals are so much better. 3y

Jinjer @HotMessJess kings and queens and stuff. Don't ask me which ones. I don't want to research too deeply because I'm afraid of coming across real historical fact spoilers. Haha! I'm watching the White Princess on Starz and am completely hooked. 3y
HotMessJess Haha ok! I'll have to check it out- historical fiction is my JAM! One of my coworkers was just telling me about this author yesterday too. I can't stop raving about Ove to anyone who will listen so I'm having a lot of book-related discussions at work this week! 3y
Jinjer Oh! Go to www.philippagregory.com there's a cool historical timeline showing what book goes with what time period! 3y
azulaco Oh, do I love this book series. Enjoy it. (edited) 3y

#kissfromarose #lyricalapril the English War of the Roses 🌹 and the rise of The Tudor dynasty - there's kissing, there's intrigue, there's war. Lots of room for historical fiction 😀❤️so many great reads.

Cinfhen Great photo and awesome choice...I want to read more about this dynasty ~~what book would you suggest as a good starting point? 3y
Dragon Thanks @Cinfhen I think The Cousins War series starts with 3y

Cinfhen After a quick title scan, White Queen has about 300 less pages than The Other Boleyn Girl so....I may try that one first! Books over 500 pages start to scare me 😳 😂 3y
Dragon True @Cinfhen over 500 pages feels like more of a commitment, better to start with a shorter one to see if you like her writing style 👍 3y
Sace "there's kissing, there's intrigue..." ??? That struck my funny bone. 3y
Dragon Thanks @Sace 👍 3y

"You must smelt iron in your blood if you are to be a queen." So, I don't think this is in the book. But it was in last night's episode of the new series, and it's awesome.

Both coming to television in April. But now I need to watch The White Queen episodes first; it preceded The White Princess.

I love my kindle! Its one of the older models, no light, no color, no games ect...and its time for a upgrade. It keeps rebooting itself. Maybe Santa will being me a paperwhite, along with my Hamilton tickets.

Reviewsbylola That looks like the same one I have. I don't use it because I only use an ereader in the dark. I need a paperwhite too! 3y

#tbr Has anyone read any of this series? It's been sitting on my shelf for a good while and it keeps getting pushed back for other things.

Marchpane I really enjoyed it. If you like reading about those historical events (War of the Roses) you'll probably like this. 3y
kricheal @Marchpane I do really love reading about that kind of thing... biographies also not just the "fictionalized" version of them. 3y

Couldn't put it down. Amazing detail and history in the book which takes place after the cousins war and the beginning of the tutor family.
