I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Check Out These Historical Figures!

Thanks to LizzyJ over at Historically Obsessed I was led to this awesome website that I wanted to share with all of you as well. George Stuart made these incredible likenesses of many historical figures. The website breaks the figures down into categories including English and French Royalty to American Revolutionaries and many others in between. There is quite an array of Tudor members included as well.

I wanted to share this image that I found from the website of Catherine de' Medici.

I don't think this is too flattering of an image, but maybe I just made her look fabulous in my head, haha.
Here is the link to his website: The Historical Figures of George Stuart.

Enjoy and leave a comment telling what some of your favorites were!
