April wasn’t a great month for me. I was really busy and there were a lot of stressful situations happening, so I wasn’t able to read a lot, but here’s what I did manage to read.
The Last Tudor by Philippa Gregory
I picked this up without having read any of Gregory’s previous books, and I enjoyed it. Having a basic understanding of the Tudor period, I was able to keep up with what was happening, although sometimes the abundance of characters with similar names could get confusing.It was well written, and it made me want to find out more about the real people portrayed and the time period, although I doubt the historical accuracy of the book. I didn’t always like how certain major characters were portrayed, but the book was a decent read. 3/5.
Haunted Edinburgh by Rupert Matthews
I was given this book, and it’s tiny, only 20 pages long! While it’s tiny, lots of stories are packed in, with descriptive pictures alongside. The stories are brief and have little to no detail, but there leaves a lot to research and there were stories I had never heard of before. It’s good as a starting point to researching Edinburgh’s dark past but not for serious research. 3/5
