    With 4 months of summer, I am getting back into reading books that have nothing to do with my degree, mainly history books.

    On the go currently I have two Tudor non fiction, two Irish history non fiction, and a fictional Tudor novel. It's a lot, but I'll get there :mmm:.

    What's your favourite historical books, fictional or non fictional?

    I don't tend to have a favourite, but if I was forced to say, it would be Alison Weir's Elizabeth.

    I'm a history postgrad student, so I could give quite a long list, but the above are a few that have had a particular impact on me.
