History fans — this one’s for you!
December 18’s post was for Dr. @lucy_worsley OBE, who is one of my top suggested (living) authors of both fiction and nonfiction.
I absolutely love Dr Worsley’s work, from her many television documentary series to her historical fiction books.
She honestly seems like a delightful person as well as a passionate historian. She also has THE dream job — Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, history documentary actor/presenter and writer!
Some of the books I routinely recommend by Worsley are ⤵️
📚 A Very British Murder — nonfic book & TV series about the English fascination with murder & murder mysteries
📚 Jane Austen at Home: A Biography — exactly what it sounds like 😂
📚My Name is Victoria — Queen Vic historical fic for young readers, but I loved it as an adult too.
📚 Queen Victoria: Twenty-Four Days That Changed Her Life — uses primary resources to recall important days in Queen Vic’s life
📺 Harlots, Housewives and Heroines: A 17th Century History for Girls
📺 Fit to Rule: How Royal Illness Changed History
📺 A Very British Murder
📺 The First Georgians: The German Kings Who Made Britain
📺 Britain’s Tudor Treasure: A Night at Hampton Court
📺 A Very British Romance
📺 Empire of the Tsars: Romanov Russia with Lucy Worsley
📺 Six Wives with Lucy Worsley
📺 British History’s Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley
📺 Jane Austen: Behind Closed Doors
📺 Victoria & Albert: The Royal Wedding
📺 Lucy Worsley’s Royal Palace Secrets
And much much, more including more historical fiction and nonfiction and documentaries.
