Waiting on Wednesday [#21]



Gilt by KATHERINE LONGSHORE


In the court of King Henry VIII, nothing is free- and love comes at the highest price of all.

When Kitty Tylney's best friend, Catherine Howard, worms her way into King Henry VIII's heart and brings Kitty to court, she's thrust into a world filled with fabulous gowns, sparkling jewels, and elegant parties. No longer stuck in Cat's shadow, Kitty's now caught between two men--the object of her affection and the object of her desire. But court is also full of secrets, lies, and sordid affairs, and as Kitty witnesses Cat's meteoric rise and fall as queen, she must figure out how to keep being a good friend when the price of telling the truth could literally be her head.(less)

Hardcover, 398 pages
Expected publication: May 15th 2012 by Viking Juvenile

Why I'm Waiting: Okay so the book came out yesterday. Whatever. I STILL WANT .I've always loved all things Anne Boleyn so I think it's time for me to move on to Henry's other unfortunate wives. I especially love that this is told from the bestie point of view!

  1. haha I've never read the story about Anne. I did read this one, but didn't really care for it. BUT I still recommend checking it out. I think it was just...a little lacking on certain things that make historical fiction such fun for me. But the author stayed really true to the historical figures in this one. Hope your able to get a copy soon!
