Reading my little trove of books that I bought in the UK:
Prince Arthur by Sean Cunningham
Biography of Prince Arthur Tudor, Henry VIII's eldest brother, who died young. Later his death would haunt Henry VIII.

The King's Pearl by Melita Thomas
Biography of Mary I prior to her accession as Queen Regnant of England. Lots of good info: timelines, who's who, European powers of the time, and more

The Prince Who Would be King by Sarah Fraser
Life of Prince Henry Stuart, son of King James I and eldest brother of Charles I.

Now reading: Royal Renegades by Linda Porter
Collective biography of Charles I and Henrietta Maria's children

Except for The King's Pearl, I bought all of these in paperback.

I've just started "Falling Creatures" by Katherine Stansfield, witchcraft in 19th century Cornwall. Rather strange at the moment!

Currently reading The Reluctant Queen by Jean Plaidy.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Started The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst
#1 novel in "The Queens of Renthia" trilogy
I checked out the complete trilogy from the library so I don't have to wait between novels.

I read and own this one. There aren't many novels on Anne Neville.

I used to own the Reluctant Queen, but it didn't make my last move. Liked it though, so I may own it again.

Now I'm reading The Virgin Widow by Anne O'Brien.
