What Plaidy novel are you reading next? I really NEED to read The Bastard King because it's a time period I am researching (late Anglo-Saxon to the Conquest), but I just love the Georgian series! I have a couple of books before I get to read another Plaidy, so I'll decide between now and then.

The newest Three Rivers Press reprints are coming out right around the corner! For a Queen's Love is a reprint of The Spanish Bridegroom (which I have already in HC) and A Favorite of the Queen is a reprint of Gay Lord Robert (which I also have through Arrow in a reprint titled Lord Robert). These come out March 2, 2010!

ANNOUNCING THE WINNER OF FLAUNTING EXTRAVAGANT QUEEN: Felicia J.! Congratulations Felicia and thank you all for participating!

  1. Yes Congrats to the Winner!

    I need to start reading some French ones (for the research part..and will also fit in well with my other challenge as well. I think I'll take up your suggestion and actually start with Madame Serpent. I may even start that this week!

  3. Congrats to Felicia!!
    I don't know what Plaidy novel to read next, I don't know when I'll fit one in. But I would love to do a quicker one, and something outside of Tudor England. Any suggestions? I have some of the Carr and Holt's as well. Give me a steer in the right direction!

  9. Thank you Arleigh! I received the book last week. This is the first time I've won a book blog giveaway. Flaunting, Extravagent Queen is my favorite of the Plaidys I've read so far. It's nice to have my own copy!
