Let the Summer reading start...

It is funny how we keep blogs, facebook statuses, tweets, and picture grams to document our lives as if what we do everyday is super important. Sometimes I wish historical figures could have foreseen their importance in the future and documented their lives even one half of what we do. It would have been so nice to actually knows the thoughts and emotions of the people whose lives have influenced me throughout my life. I guess historical fiction will have to do until some casket or chest is discovered with all of the diaries or letters of my favorite historical people.

Recommended Historical Diaries/Narratives (fiction):

Ancient Egypt:

Camelot  (Queen Guinevere, Lancelot, and Arthur):

About Tudor England: 

Scholastic's The Royal Diaries
(These books were my first interaction with historical women . I have read Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor, Cleopatra VII: Daughter of the Nile, and Isabel: Jewel of Castilla )

  1. I admire your enthusiasm for the time period. It's not something that I can say that I've shared over the years but I can see the attraction.
