I love old books!!
blurb
Lauraandherbooks

Still reading this book , I love it and it‘s well written; Rasputin is only mentioned a few times, it‘s almost like another side of the Romanov story being told , and you realize how the downfall happened- this family just seemed so out of touch of what was happening around them with all the balls while the citizens were starving, that is my perspective, very interesting read

To say I‘m excited is not enough! I finally will have the first 2 books in the series!! My brother asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him- he‘s not the bookworm lime me so I was worried he wouldn‘t understand how important this is. .. it he didn‘t even ask any questions he just went and searched all the bookstores until he found them!! How awesome is he??!!

Crazeedi I really enjoyed these books! 1w
Lauraandherbooks @Crazeedi good to know - I‘m really excited to start reading them!! 7d

One corner in my library now turned office as well , it‘s a small room and I had to put the other book shelves on the other wall so it is a cozy room but it is my little get away

The more I get into these books of royals the lifestyle is a bit mind blowing, the whole idea of being thrown to the wolves in a manner of speaking is way too common and way too easy , while at the same to remain the appearance of prim and proper .. what balance 😬 either way as a person who is so intrigued by history this book is interesting a good mix of facts with dramatized fiction ✅👌🖤

Excuse the mess.. I found some used book shelves on market place .. they needed a bit of tlc and now I‘m trying to organize my books .. ideally by genre and as simple as that sounds it is proving to not be 🤦🏻‍♀️ anyone have any suggestions or how do you shelf your books?

Chrissyreadit I‘m not very good at organizing - but yay for bookshelves! You look like you have a great space! 1mo
Lauraandherbooks @Chrissyreadit yes it‘s an interior room that previous owners used it as the tanning room.. they had a tanning bed.. I guess that‘s why there is no window.. next spring hopefully we can put a window in .. but yes I‘m happy with more bookshelves ☺️ 1mo

I‘m really enjoying this book and have found a documentary on #netflix #thelastczars its much like back in school after reading and doing an essay on a book of literature you got to watch a movie depicting said book 🤗🤗🤗🤗

rubyslippersreads I enjoyed this, but thought the actor who played Rasputin wasn‘t creepy enough (although he was pretty creepy). 😏 1mo
Lauraandherbooks @rubyslippersreads after reading the whole book I understand why... in some ways I guess it‘s somewhat debatable his creepiness.. the romanovs and some others didn‘t see him that way ... I myself remain undecided.. I think in many ways he was creepy and maybe he was battling his own demons and tried to be holy but him and the tsarina definitely destroyed Russia because of the people hated them and the tsar should have been stronger against them. 1mo
Lauraandherbooks @rubyslippersreads I loved this story .. it‘s a terrible thing that happened but definitely interesting 1mo

I‘m trying to read this .. more to come as I get farther into it

candority I saw the conspiracy theories surrounding this book - is that why you are reading it? 7mo
Lauraandherbooks @candority yes when I heard of it I was flabbergasted... and after hearing the conspiracy theories I was enthralled so I definitely want to dig deeper into the actual conspiracy theories but in the meantime I‘m quickly reading over this 7mo
candority Yeah, I didn‘t dig too deep into it either, but I might have to! I‘ll be interested to see what you think of the book! 7mo

Lauraandherbooks @candority I posted my review of the book.. i bailed on it before i was able to get very far into it.. i kept falling asleep!! I finally gave up on trying to read it, which for me is huge cus i hate not finishing a book! 🥴 7mo
candority I saw that! It‘s too bad it wasn‘t more interesting. At least other people have put in the work to read it, so we can just read what they write! 7mo
Lauraandherbooks @candority yes that‘s true but I wanted to read for myself to form my own opinion but this is so difficult to get thru.. i will try skimming but old English is not easy to speed read thru 7mo

Wow !! What an amazing story, this is the kind of story almost expected from fiction and movies are made of! But it‘s a #truestory of a young lady faced with hardship and the changes she went through! Growing up in America then later living in Nigeria! I don‘t want to give away too much of the story and encourage all to read this amazing book!!

Birdsong28 Look on Philippa Gregory's website for all her books and how each series should be read if you want to get the best out of them as especially with the Tudor series (one of them is this book in the picture) how they were published wasn't necessarily in chronological order. Hope this helps 😘📚📖 7mo
