Weekend Read: The White Queen

King Henry.  Anne Boleyn.  Queen Mary.  Queen Elizabeth.  How I adore the Tudors.  And thanks to Philippa Gregory, I have been able to indulge my Tudor obsession through books like "The Other Boleyn Girl", "The Constant Princess", "The Boleyn Inheritance" and "The Queen's Fool".

If you have read any of these books and loved them as much as I did, I highly recommend "The White Queen", the first novel in Gregory's new series.  It brings all that I love from her books into an entirely new era, well before the Tudors were in power.  The "War of the Roses" has begun and I cannot wait to read the next novel, "The Red Queen".

And isn't this all even more appropriate with the Royal Wedding just days away?
