2011


Since I love historical fiction, I have decided to try out the "2011 Henry VIII Reading Challenge" hosted by Taylor at All Things Historical Fiction.  I am starting late so I plan to read 5 books that are centered around Henry VIII and I will post reviews about each of them.

1.) Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
2.) The Confession of Katherine Howard by Suzannah Dunn
3.) Pale Rose of England by Sandra Worth
4.) The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir
5.) The Favored Queen by Carolly Erickson
