English monarchy

Right now, I am quite obsessed with the British monarchy and I do not mean Wills and Kate.

I had to get this book after watching The Young Victoria:

Then I moved onto The Tudors, what a fascinating family. The first two-thirds of the book were great, but it got a little sloppy with Elizabeth I:

So, now I'm in the middle of a big book about Elizabeth I. It's possible that I just don't care for her as a historical figure, because while I couldn't put down the first two books, this one I'm stalled at about 30% through.

I never dreamed I would enjoy reading historical non-fiction, but I really love it.
