If You Like

This is a new feature here at A Chick Who Reads. Have you ever loved an author so much but wanted to branch out and discover more books that are similar? Well that's what I plan to help you with in this feature.


Today's author is Phillipa Gregory. We all know her from her books The Other Boleyn Girl, The Boleyn Inheritance and The White Queen to name but a few.

So if you like historical novels that involve European royalty, what other author's should you try out?

There are many writing in the area right now but there is one that stands out above all the rest, maybe even about Ms Gregory, and that's Jean Plaidy.

One thing you must know if you are unfamiliar with Plaidy's writing, is that she's actually Victoria Holt. Most of her books were written in the 40s and 50s, and she has written a great deal. Since there was such a boom in historical fiction lately, a good many of her books have been reissued.

You can check out her many books here and to learn more about Jean Plaidy read her Wiki Page

Thank you for pointing out Jean Plaidy! I have 14 of her historical novels at home, and only one is left unread. Clearly, I love her.;) I have also read all of her Victoria Holt and Philippa Carr novels. Funnily enough, I have yet to read a Philippa Gregory novel, but I'm getting there.
