What the postman brought me 8

He brought me some books I had exchanged for stamps on RISI. I got Philippa Gregory's books The Other Boleyn Girl and The Boleyn Inheritance after watching the Tudor's. I am fascinated by the scandal and amount of sex they had I was blown away by the series because it really came as a shock to me, but know I am desperate to read every book I can on the subject!

Arthur and George by Julian Barnes was chosen purely because it is about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and i am a closeted Sherlock Holmes fan.


  1. I've read and loved all of those - you lucky girl!

  2. I read Arthur and George as part of my library's reading group. It must be me, but I have such a job to get into historical fiction, although I know so many people love it. Tried the Philippa Gregory books too but not my cup of tea, however I loved the film "The other Boleyn Girl". I'm just strange.

  3. i hated the film but loved the bookx
