The Tudors

I just received the third season of the Showtime series The Tudors. Watching it is reminding me just how much I am interested in that time period. I have read all of the 16th Century Phillipa Gregory books except the Other Queen and The Wise Woman. I love her books and have learned a lot about this time period through them. Can anyone suggest any other authors who write about this time period? Are the Alison Weir books any good? I have so many books on my TBR list that I'm not sure when I will get to them, but I am interested and curious.

  1. They go back a century earlier, but I really liked the trilogy about King Edward IV and Lady Anne by Posie Graeme-Evans: "The Innoncent", "The Exiled" and "The Uncrowned Queen". G-E is an Australian but really can write English history. Some quotes from "This book will enthral everyone who loved The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory." "Obvious comparisons are made to Philippa Gregory but it is younger and a great deal sexier."

    PS - I loved "The Other Boleyn Girl" but that is all I've read by by P.G. I do have "Innocent Traitor" by Weir waiting in the wings (so many books, so little time."
