Top Ten Books I’ve Had On My TBR Since I Started Blogging

So, the original topic was books we’ve had on our TBR since before we started blogging, but in all honesty, I have no record of what I wanted to read before I started blogging.  There are, however, a lot of books that have been on my to-read list for years, so that’s what I’ll be sharing today!  I went with the first ten books on my TBR on goodreads, and it’s mostly non-fiction (of the historical variety), with a couple of romances thrown in.

TTT Ten Books On My TBR

  1. Elizabeth’s Women by Tracy Borman.  I’m completely fascinated by Elizabeth I, and this has been on my TBR for years.  I’d love to learn more about the women who influenced her.
  2. Mary Tudor: Princess, Bastard, Queen by Anna Whitelock.  I absolutely love the Tudors, and I don’t know much about “Bloody Mary,” so this book will be read someday.  I don’t know when, but eventually I’ll read it!
  3. Anne Boleyn: Henry VIII’s Obsession by Anne Norton.  Anne Boleyn definitely changed things, and I cannot read enough about her.
  4. Catherine De Medici: Renaissance Queen Of France by Leonie Frieda.  I want to know the story of the woman that I’ve seen portrayed on Reign- which I know isn’t historically accurate, hence wanting to read more about the real people I see on the show.
  5. The Life And Death Of Anne Boleyn by Eric Ives.  Because you can never have too many books on one person. I also like seeing how different historians view one person.
  6. Catherine Of Aragon: Spanish Queen Of Henry VIII by Giles Tremlett.  If I’m going to read about Mary, Elizabeth, and Anne Boleyn, then I need to read about Catherine Of Aragon.
  7. Lady Jane Grey: A Tudor Mystery by Eric Ives.  She’s really fascinating- she had such a short-lived reign, and I want to know more about her.
  8. Stonewall by Martin Duberman.  I only vaguely know the events of Stonewall, and I want to know more!  This book seems like a good starting point.
  9. The Rake by Mary Jo Putney.  I tend to like the romances I read, and it seems like a lot of people really like it.
  10. Not Quite A Husband by Sherry Thomas.  I kind of forgot I had this one on my TBR, because it’s been on my TBR for years.  Like every other book on this list.  But maybe one day, I’ll actually read it.

    • It’s definitely something I’m interested in! I really like the Wives Of Henry VIII by Antonia Fraser- it’s a pretty good overview of Henry’s wives, and gives a good amount of information without going into too much detail.

  1. I love your list! I also love to read about old school royalty – the scandals are so much fun to learn about! I loved Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie and highly recommend it if you’re interested at all in Russian history! Happy reading! 😀

    • I’ll have to check that one out! I don’t know a lot about Russian history, but it’s always fun to read/learn something new. And I agree that the scandals are a lot of fun to learn about!
