One of the things I really love about the end of the year is seeing everyone else's best of lists. I always have trouble picking out my faves though and with 81 books read this year picking out my top ten for was no exception. I finally managed to do it though. So here they are-my top 10 plus five "honorable mentions" You didn't really think I'd be able to pick just ten did you? :)
Queen by Right tells the story of Cecily Neville (known as Proud Cis), wife to Richard Duke of York. I really liked spunky Cis who we meet as an eight year old girl. She grows up alongside Richard and they form a close friendship which blossoms into a true love match. I really liked this lady's fascinating story as she stood by her husband despite his being constantly humiliated and shunned by King Henry VI and his haughty Queen Margaret of Anjou. Loved the detail and learned quite a bit about Cis whom I'd never heard of before picking this up-this book had me leaning Yorkist :)
Did any of these make your list?
