I hit a cool milestone in Goodreads today. 1000 books on my Read shelf. I started using Goodreads 10 years ago and the tagged book was the first one I shelved as read in May 13, 2009. So that's 1000 books in 10 years 🤪. I wish I had kept a count of how many I'd read up til then (I was 35 at the time so it had been a lot lol)
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Another great one! In fact, I think this may be my favorite of the series so far! I especially love that it focused on women we don‘t know much about.
Who else loves to read in bed? I certainly do!
This is Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk. He was the worst. While reading this book and the one before it, I kept thinking of that quote from All‘s Well that Ends Well: “Me think‘st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee.” The fact that he kept getting family members and associates executed while living to tell more tales is maddening.
Excellent book, however! It‘s particularly great to see Anne of Cleves given a voice.
ICYMI, I adore all royal related fiction. Currently rewarding myself for a grant biographical sketch well done. Any suggestions for after I finish this one?? #treatyoself
