lucrezia in the light

Borgia Book List

@lucrizias as requested here goes my list, the ones I haven’t read yet are bolded:                                            

Fiction:

  • Madonna of the Seven Hills – by Jean Plaidy
  • Light on Lucrezia Borgia – by Jean Plaidy (these two books are a series and it’s honestly my least favorite but you know give it a shot)
  • Blood and Beauty – Sarah Dunant (It’s disappointing how Lucrezia is portrayed here and her relationship with Cesare tbh but overall a good book)
  • Either Caesar or Nothing – Jutta Laroche( it’s a novel about Cesare and it’s my favorite novel about the Borgias. Unfortunately it’s only available on kindle)
  • Sins of the House of Borgia – Sarah Bower (so good <333 highly recommend!)
  • The Family – by Mario Puzo


Non-fiction:

  • Cesare Borgia: His Life and Times – by Sarah Bradford
  • Lucrezia Borgia: Life, Love and Death in Renaissance Italy – by Sarah Bradford    
  • The Borgias – by Ivan Cloulas                                            
  • The Fall of the House of Borgia – by E.R Chamberlin
  • The Borgias – by Clemente Fusero
  • The Borgias and Their Enemies: 1431-1519 – by Christopher Hibbert
  • The Prince – by Niccolò Machiavelli
  • La familia Borja – by Miguel Batllori
  • El Príncipe del Renacimiento: Vida y Leyenda de César Borgia – by José Catalán Deus


Of course there are many others books on the Borgia family lol but I think those are a good start! and you can find them on Amazon U.S or U.K (there are used copies that are cheap) you can also download some of these here: http://kateargent.tumblr.com/post/49132491070/because-of-reasons-the-downloads-are-zips-so

I’m crying over this picture Krow took of me during our photoshoot with Bakephotogatari (find him on instagram!  he’s awesome!) This cosplay took up 2 months of my life and I can’t believe it’s finished and I get to wear it with Krow as my Homura!  10,000 points to @xhowla for making those fucking wings they are amazing and I love you so much, I’m so happy we’re partners in this madness. also kudos to @lady-lucrezia for hand sewing probably half of those lights for me, ilu.
