Meet Me in D.C.

As my regular readers are well aware, I’m a Philippa Gregory fanatic. To this day, two of my three most viewed posts by far are about reading her Tudor series in chronological order and my thoughts about Anne Boleyn’s rape scene in the film adaptation of The Other Boleyn Girl. When I received her newsletter […]

A Love Letter to The Other Queen

If ever there was a novel I have coveted and wanted in my hot little hands NOW, it is The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory. Ever since I finished her other books about the Tudor clan, I’ve been willing time to speed up time and make September 16, 2008 arrive. Thus far, it hasn’t worked. […]

Book Lust

When Tracy left a comment that she had a copy of The Lady Elizabeth, the latest novel written by Alison Weir, book lust set in to my reader’s heart fast and furious. Were I the Incredible Hulk, I would have ripped through my clothes and turned green within minutes of reading Tracy’s comment (which wouldn’t […]

Gregory Discusses the Differences between Fiction and Film

Here is an interesting article that Philippa Gregory wrote about writing and reading historical fiction and the differences between her novel and the upcoming film rendition of The Other Boleyn Girl.  If I gain nothing else from seeing the movie, I really enjoyed reading this article. A big thank you to Butterflylady from HistoricalFiction.org for […]

#43 ~ The Virgin’s Lover

The Virgin’s Lover by Philippa Gregory Your Attention, Please! Until Gregory’s novel about Mary, Queen of Scots (entitled The Other Queen) is published next year, I can now officially say that I have read every book in her Tudor series! YES!!!! I read my first in March and, as of October 24, I read the […]

Philippa Gregory in Chronological Order

Update 7/29/2017: It’s been almost two years since I’ve update this page. Philippa Gregory has published one Tudor related book and is about to publish another. I finally read The Taming of the Queen. I haven’t written a review of it, but after a good start, it bored the heck out of me. Queen’s Gambit is […]

#28 ~ The Queen’s Fool

The Queen’s Fool by Philippa Gregory The magnificent and deeply satisfying way in which Innocent Traitor ended made it too tempting to continue on with the saga of the Tudor monarchy. Reading Veronica only intensified that temptation. I was not disappointed. The Queen’s Fool is the story of a young Jewish girl who took flight […]

#21 ~ The Constant Princess

The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory After reading both of her Boleyn books, I was very excited to read this book about Katherine of Aragon, even though it was out of chronological order so to speak. She was such a wonderful character seen through the eyes of Mary Boleyn. This book was good and provided […]
