#SubjectOfTheMonth historical fiction! I am enjoying the book. Penman is such a talented author. My only problem is keeping up with all the names. @EadieB How is everyone doing with their historical fiction reads? 🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉
I love exploring #onmyown Here are two photos I took during a visit to Cardiff and Caerphilly, Wales (I had the chance to join my husband on a work trip to England, and while he was in meetings I hopped on a train (okay, a few trains) and spent the day in South Wales. Wales has a lot of castles, many of which are massive! Any fan of Sharon Kay Penman, Susan Higginbotham and Elizabeth Chadwick will be familiar with Welsh castles.
Just taking them off the shelves makes me want to read again!!
Calling everyone who wants to participate in #subjectofthemonth! I will read the tagged one and Lamentation, to begin with. What about you? Share your plans and ideas! Let‘s do this🔛🤛🏻💪🏽
Day 21 #AdventRecommends
Any favourites list simply must include Sharon Kay Penman, a brilliant historical fiction author. After much deliberation of her books I‘m going with the brilliant Welsh Princes Trilogy. If you like historical fiction it is a must read.
3. Dramas like GOT and Walking Dead
4. No. I can't focus. Usually when hubby has on the TV, I'm listening to an audiobook and crafting or something.
5. Sharon Kay Penman all the way from The Sun in Splendor to A King's Ransom. Perfect for a new HBO series :)
So many great women out there that have written #HistoricalFiction but Sharon Kay Penman is up there with the very best! Her Welsh Princes Trilogy is superb and amongst my favourite historical fiction books and there are a lot on that list. Also a notable mention for her Sunne in Splendour book which tells the story of Richard III. A notable mention too for the authors Elizabeth Chadwick and Barbara Erskine! #ReadingWomenMonth
You know your family has been #Litsyfied when your hubby sends u this pic 😀
Wales and England
Sharon Kay Penman‘s trilogy about the medieval princes of Gwynedd beginning with the tagged book or her series starring Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine.
Picture taken in Finnish Lapland yesterday. It‘s springtime!
More book buying today ( on kindle ) Here Be Dragons , & .... The Sunne in Splendour. I would have got the books in the shop today , but the print inside was tiny. Really tiny, I would find it too hard to read.
Delighted to have these new ones ready & waiting on my kindle ✨✨✨✨
I‘m trying really hard to see this for what it is... hoping I have enough yarn to finish! I‘m thinking that even if it doesn‘t turn out the way that I planned, I will still love it!
Sharon Penman has been my favourite historical fiction author since I bought a copy of The Sunne in Splendor many years ago but the Welsh Princes Trilogy are my favourites out of all her novels. Exceptional research and writing, I read them over and over again.
Since I just got to meet John Sandford, my next author I would absolutely love to meet is Sharon Kay Penman. I'd love to listen to her talk about her research on the Plantagenets. She is my favorite author of historical fiction. #kostovagiveaway

Killing time at Chapters before a concert.
Me: I wonder if they have Here Be Dragons...ooh, they have the whole trilogy!
Me to me: BUY THEM ALL
For #day12 of #photoadaynov16 - literally, Here Be Dragons. I love good historical fiction, and Sharon Kay Penman writes rich, chunky period novels that are accessible, but slightly weightier in tone than, say, Philippa Gregory. Photographing this one out has me considering a re-read in the future.
I don't re-read many books, too many in the world to read! These are an exception though and have re-read a couple of times. Historical fiction at its best 😀
Sharon Kay Penman doesn't get nearly the hype she deserves. I came across her by accident, fell in love with her Welsh Princes trilogy, and was then amazed and entertained by her books on Henry II, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and their children. Her historical fiction is heavy on the history and immensely readable. #underhypedbooks #augustofpages #augustphotochallenge
