Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:
10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List
This topic was made very easy for me because, between February and now, I have had a large influx of historical fiction onto my to-be-read pile. So here are those new additions, in the order I added them to my TBR:
~ 1, 2, 3, 4 ~
The White Queen
The Red Queen
The Lady of the Rivers
The Kingmaker’s Daughter
by Philippa Gregory
Back in February, I was lucky enough to pick up all of the books from Gregory’s Cousins’ Wars series in The Works’ 3 for £5 deal! These are books I have really wanted to read since watching the BBC’s brilliant TV series, The White Queen (2013).

The Girl in the Glass Tower by Elizabeth Fremantle
Having previously loved Fremantle’s The Sister of Treasons, I was really pleased to be accepted for a copy of this, a newer novel about Arbella Stuart, via Netgalley in February.
~ 6 ~
The Shadow Queen by Anne O’Brien
Similarly, I have previously enjoyed several of O’Brien’s novels, so I was also pleased to be accepted for a copy of this, a new novel about Joan of Kent, via Netgalley in March.
~ 7, 8 ~
The Mistress of Blackstairs by Catherine Curzon
Dunstan by Conn Iggulden
Also in March, I received copies of Curson’s 18th century mystery and Iggulden’s novel set in Anglo-Saxon England via Netgalley. Both new-to-me authors, although I have heard a lot of good stuff about Iggulden.
~ 9 ~
The Murder of Mary Russell by Laurie R. King
In April, I was back in The Works and this time picked up this; one of the newer instalments in King’s Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series. A series I really must continue with, after reading the first book, The Beekeeper’s Apprentice, last year.
~ 10 ~
By Blood Divided by James Heneage
Then just last month, I received a copy of this via Netgalley. Heneage is a new-to-me author, but I couldn’t resist this epic tale of the clash of the Roman and Ottoman empires.
