Hi Sanskriti, welcome to the I Love Reading Challenges group. If you have any questions we have an "I Have a Question" thread. Feel free to post any new reading challenges you find in the challenges thread. You may also start a discussion thread for it if you want. I am glad you joined and I am looking forward to reading with you.
ah yes, its pretty good competition to amazon........... and they even ship obscure books from abroad which is a good thing (for me). and quite reasonably priced too! :)
im quite price conscious, so always looking at bargain stores and old book stores!! its a real treasure....
I really loved The other Boleyn girl. It is so much better than the movie (although I did enjoy it) They seem to have almost tried to rewrite history for the movie. It's incorrect in a few places. I recommend the book. I have read several of the authors books in the Tudor series and have enjoyed all of them.
Into the Wild by Krakower........
I have read many of his books......for some reason, this was the one I enjoyed the least. I think it's because it's so lonesome. The character was plagued by demons and paid less attention to his connection with the very thing he needed, which was connection.
I didn't have time to peruse your shelves, but I was surprised at how much I liked The Other Boleyn Girl. Uncharacteristically, I saw the movie FIRST and that's what got me curious. It's intrigue and beautiful costumes (you can actually imagine them). It made me curious about his other wives...
I'm an avid historical fiction fan. And Henry VIII is my secret celebrity boyfrined. I'm obsessed with all things Tudor. The Other Boylen Girl is absolutely on the BOTTOM of the list. Gregory's history is questionable, and her writing is just barely adequate. I'm not a big fan....
If you want good historicals, try Anya Seyton's Katherine (not Tudor, but GREAT) Want lightweight historicals? Jean Plaidy. A little more substance? Margaret George. Tudor with a Twist? "Threads"
Welcome to 1001 books. You can keep track of the books you have read from the book, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die here and join in the discussions on the books we are reading for the month (from the book) or you can argue the merits of the list as some enjoy doing. We hope you will want to join in our discussions. The current books are at the top of the list for that month. If there is any way I can answer your questions about the group or about Shelfari, let me know.
If you don’t own the book the list can be found http://www.listology.com/content_show.cfm?content_id=22845
