Amazon.com: The White Queen: A Novel (Cousins War (Touchstone)) (9781416563686): Philippa Gregory: Books
first book in the 'cousins war' series (which is about the Wars of the Roses) I really have a fondness of Elizabeth Woodville, so really enjoyed this portrayal. The Red Queen (book two in the series) isnt as good, but I also dont care for Margaret Beaufort too much either.
AMAZING Philippa Gregory novel! Based on the War of the Roses, it's a historical fiction account of the love between King Edward and Elizabeth Woodville and the struggle to keep their kingdom!
The White Queen is the first novel in the Cousin's War series as told from Edward's queen, Elizabeth Woodville.
The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. This is a historical fiction about Elizabeth Woodville, or Queen Elizabeth. The War of the Roses, or The Cousins' War, was a very tumultous time when two factions were battling for control of the throne of England. Elizabeth was a fascinating woman who was truly in love with her husband, the king, and who was stoic and even defiant in the face of adversity. I think most people will probably remember her as the mother of the two princes in the tower whose fate has never been confirmed. I absolutely loved this book and was inspired to learn more about that fascinating time.
One of my favorite books from Philippa Gregory

Amazing book! His account of his journey through three concentration camps is the most detailed I have found!
I've read this. Amazing book. The incredible story of Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor. I highly recommend this book.
The incredible story of Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor. ... One of my all time favorites ... Read in 9th grade English, wrote an entire paper on it in college!
Night- Elie Wiesel- the authors account of survival in a Nazi Concentration camp. Haunting...history is doomed to repeat itself if we don't remember.
Night by Elie Wiesel - The true story of one of the most famous Jewish Holocaust survivors during WW II in Europe. This book is his story of survival. His life of Peace as God's chosen people who were slaves in Egypt (Africa)- discussion of how this could happen
To not forget. That is what I take away from my reading of Night by Elie Wiesel. This was a difficult read for me. For years I have shied away from books and films dealing with the Holocaust.It wasn't denial of what happened.I really didn't know where to put my feelings.Horror, shame of knowing what we as humans are capable of perpetrating on one another,it was easier not to have to process all that. I'm glad I read this book.It should be required reading in all high schools.
Night, by Eli Wiesel...one of my favorite books.
Night (Elie Wiesel)~~On my "To Read" list
Defending Jacob was actually hard for me to get into. A book about a father, DA, who is working the murder of a 14 year old boy when his own son becomes the prime suspect. Although it began slow and had a dull climax the ending I honestly did not see coming, which in turn, made the book worth reading. I'm a sucker for an unsuspected ending.

The Book Thief is the story of Liesel Meminger. Liesel is almost ten when she ends up in Molching with Hans and Rosa Hubermann, her new foster parents. It is 1939. In Nazi Germany. Through their eyes we see Hitler and Nazi Germany; we experience the atrocities and the small kindnesses. Zusak’s story is mostly about everyday things: hunger, pettiness, laughter, hope, cruelty and kindness. Loved it.

A Discovery of Witches. Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.
