 Hi, this not really a book review but more a recommendation that I have for you.    I absolutely love this book! I am very much a history buff, I like all kinds of history, but my are of specialty in Tudor England. This book is a great resource for anyone who is studying the Tudor/Stuart era.  I run a couple of history pages on facebook so this is a great resource to have on hand. Plus I just like looking through it and seeing what events happen on certain date. The book follows the 12 months on the calendar and tells certain events that happened on each day. She doesn’t just write the date and event but gives a detail description of it. At the beginning of the book she names and gives dates to different Tudor Holidays that they celebrated during that period. She also names and give dates of reigns to the monarch’s ruling all the way to James VI ( Basically houses of Tudor and Stuart). I would recommend this book to anyone, especially if your new to Tudor history, I am not good at dates though I have been studying this period for a few years now, this really helps me a lot. All I can say is if your a fan of history/Tudors/Stuarts this is a must buy. You won’t regret it




Hello, My name is Rachel. I have another blog on here that is called Books Books & More Books  On that blog I usually do book reviews on some of the fiction books that I like to read.  I am both student and I work part time as well.  I am majoring in  History, which I love,  along with books.  The reason I created this second blog is because I wanted to do something with history.  So I decided that this blog will just be dedicated to book reviews and articles on different historical figures that I am interested in. I don’t want to focus on one particular era.   Not only will this help me learn more,  but I hope that whoever reads this blog will get something out of it as well.  I am pretty lax in my reviews, but I will give an honest review on all the books that I read.  I will also being rating each book that I read on a scale from one to five,  five being the highest and one the lowest.   I love to hear from you all,  feel free to message me and  suggest books.  I might use your suggestion on future reviews.
