Weekly book Meme hosted by Wonder Struck
Title: The Other Queen
Author: Philippa Gregory
OTP: King Francis II of France and Mary, Queen of Scots
Okay, so technically Gregory's book is about after Mary leaves French court and really I just wanted an excuse to feature my favorite couple. But, there are tons of books on Mary, Queen of Scots from non-fiction's Mary, Queen of Scouts and the Murder of Lord Darnley by Alison Weir to a Royal Diaries Mary, Queen of Scots: Queen Without a Country, France 1553, so I am sure one book out there talks about Mary's marriage to Francis, which was rumored in real life to be a happy one, albeit short. In any case, I love Adelaide Kane and Toby Regbo (young Dumbledore in Harry Potter) 's portrayal of Mary and Francis on CW's Reign (Fridays at 8pm starting October 9th). It's an average love story with the complicated elements of trying to rule a country and sometimes putting your duty to your country before yourself and your spouse. Watch the last five minutes of Season Two - How can you not love Toby Regbo?
So who's your OTP for this week
