It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila at One Person’s Journey through a World of Books.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

Sarah Singleton – Heretic
One I picked up from the library and have just started. Literally just started, so I can’t really make any comment on what I think of it just yet. I’ve enjoyed both the other books I’ve read by this author, though, so I expect to like this one too. The subject matter (a young girl being accused of witchcraft during Tudor reign) is one that interests me a great deal.

Philippa Gregory – The Women of the Cousins’ War
This one’s non-fiction, which I don’t usually read, but I adored the Cousins’ War trilogy and found the women featured in them to be very interesting and wanted to find out more. As I also love Philippa Gregory’s writing, the publication of this book seemed the perfect opportunity for me to delve a little deeper.

  1. I’d be interested in giving Heretic a read too (I’ll put it on my to-read list just as soon as I finish this comment). I’ve done a lot of research and some translation when it comes to the Inquisition in Spain, but not so much when it comes to other countries. Though I remember hearing that the witch hunts were worse and the death toll much higher on the rest of the continent. I wonder whether the same could be said for England…

    Thanks for posting about the book; I’m glad I noticed it. 🙂

  2. I didn’t know that Philippa Gregory wrote nonfiction.
    I hope you enjoy your reading this final week of 2011.

    • I think this is her only non-fiction to date. It’s more background on the three women that are the lead characters in the Cousins’ War trilogy and although I’m not very far into it, I’m already finding it very interesting. A must for fans of the trilogy! 🙂

  3. Interesting books! I hope you enjoy them both. Happy reading!

  4. Have a great week of reading as we say goodbye to 2011! Happy New Year.

  5. Looks like a good reading week. I haven’t heard of either of those, but they sound good.

    Enjoy your books this week –
