Now, let’s get down to business for Day 3 of the HCC March Madness!
You can vote for:
The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
Do you want to “cleave” to Anne of Cleves who has won the crown of England in The Boleyn Inheritance? Are you intrigued by religious upheaval and political uncertainty? If yes, then go ahead, vote for the women in this English dramatic adventure.
Bones of the Hills by Conn Iggulden
Or should the third book in the Conqueror series, CONQUER this battle?
It’s an epic story of Genghis Khan who has taken his armies against cities and finds trouble rising west of the Mongolian plains.
You know me. I’ll always vote for the more compelling read, which I think is the Bones of the Hills! It’s been rated 5 out of 5 stars by its readers on Chapters-Indigo, which tells me, this book is popular for good reason.
Okay, so I haven’t read it yet, but GENGHIS KHAN?
Reading this historical fiction of how he came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of of northeast Asia is fascinating to me. I am Asian, after all!
You’re not Asian, eh? That’s okay.
You’re a READER! And today, you can be a VOTER, too!
So, go ahead. Vote for your book of choice in the battle of HCC March Madness.
And help make the difference for these books in coming closer to the HCC March Madness Crowning Title!
