For the Tudors, my two favourite authors were G R Elton and Richard Rex. They come up in the textbook and many of the interpretation questions as well.

I just ‘finished’ A Level history so waiting on grades now.

Hi! It’s probably best to order the textbooks if you’re hoping to get ahead

I'm also doing Tudors as well. New Worlds, Lost Worlds: The Rule of the Tudors, 1485-1603 by Bridgen is a good shout. Guy is historian that pops up often. I do suggest getting a textbook for revision and historian books for further reading
