Feature and Follow Friday (3)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

A: Alison Weir:  I am so glad there is someone out there as obsessed with English history as I am.  Thanks for triggering my life-long obsession with the Tudors and draining my bank account in the process.


  1. Awesome Answer!!! I love English History. I'm following you now as well. I hope you had as much answering this question as I did.

    Happy Reading!!!

  2. Ahahaha! Oh, I love this... I love how specific and outright hilarious it is. Brilliant! ♥

    You know, I've still read NOTHING about the Tudors... the most I know is from WATCHING 'The Tudors', and I've only seen 2 episodes >___<

    1. Read "The Children of Henry VIII" I think it's the best. You will be hooked. She has a very narrative way of talking about history.

  3. haha, great answer!! Thank you so much for stopping by and following!

  4. Love your answer! I also love the name of your blog! I am a new GFC follower. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  5. Ooh I'm also a big fan of the Tudors, though I know that my knowledge is scant really. In fact, I like any historical period! And in any country - I'm not fussy.

  6. I love British history!!! Well, actually I love historical fiction in general. I also really want to watch the TV series the Tudors and the Borgias. I've heard good things about them!

  7. Hopping through. I like Weir's books too. If I met her, I'd tell her what a cool name she has.

  10. Awesome answer! I need to branch into Tudor England myself but if she's your favorite, I suppose I'll start with Alison (the genre is so vast!).

  17. I haven't read any of Alison Weir's books, but I've really been getting into historical fiction lately. I absolutely loved Sharon Kay Penman's The Sunne in Splendour.
