The Blog Chain - Guilty Pleasure Reading

The Blog Chain question this week is:
 
What are your guilty pleasure books/genres?
 
My guilty pleasure reading is historical fiction...which I admit doesn't sound like it should be a guilty pleasure. It's far from dull, though. I once described historical fiction as a retelling of "really old gossip" and the juicier the better. Especially anything to do with royal intrigue. There's always murder, adultery, international espionage, and of course pampered royalty who have more power than sense.
 
I love love love anything by Philippa Gregory.
 
The Other Boleyn Girl (The Tudor Court, #2)The Constant Princess (The Tudor Court, #1)

 
 
 
 
And I also love any historical fiction that is also a ghost story...here' a recent one I read that was fantastic:
 
 
In the Shadow of Blackbirds

 
 Keep following this topic on the chain and check out Michelle’s blog on Monday, or look back at Katrina's post from yesterday.

  3. Very much true Rachel! I have once read a book of Philippa Gregory. Instantly, it became one of my favorites. I love the style in writing and plot with historical fiction. It is my first time to bump into your blog and I love it. This is perfect for voracious readers and internet savvy.
