I completed a surprising amount of my May TBR. Research on Queen Mary was the key area where I fell short, so those books are on here again. This is mostly because I am going back through books I have already read for sections on her before I start these new ones, so Mary has not been completely neglected.


The club read for More Historical Than Fiction is A Bloody Field by Shrewsbury. This is not on my list because I have already read it, but I look forward to the discussion of Henry Hotspur Percy (and all those other Henrys). Join us!
