New reading 😊😍

I haven‘t read a lot about Kathryn, and I never had a good impression of her. This one, however, gave me a bit of sympathy toward her. Unfortunately, the author‘s note didn‘t address how much was known and how much was out of the author‘s head; I was particularly interested in how much was known from before she came to court. Despite that, I still quite enjoyed it

Ahhh! What did I do to myself!? I didn't know it was a part of a series. 🥺 I was destroyed by the placement of a book plate.

I usually don't do romance. I was told to try this one out, and I really truly liked it. As you can see for the binding, I've read it a few times now. What I wasn't told was that it is book nine in a very long series. Years later, I'm destroyed. I'm really hoping it's been long enough that I can forget most of it. 🤪🤣

AnneCecilie I think it‘s loosely a series where the author looks at different women during the Rose Wars and the Tudor period. So the Boleyn girls wouldn‘t necessarily have a prominent role in the other books. (edited) 5d
SmartSassery Oh cool. I had imagined there would be some overlap. I know it's historical fiction so I wasn't exactly sure. Thank you very much. 👍 5d
SquidgetsRoom @AnneCecilie that‘s good to know! @SmartSassery I also bought this book not knowing at the time that it was a series read. Have not read it because I haven‘t acquired any of the others yet. I may read it as a stand alone! Yay! 5d
SmartSassery Now I don't know what to do for the rest. 😂 It looks like it can be part of a long series and a shorter one. Ill probably read them in order. 💜 I can't help myself. Although this one didn't seem to be missing anything alone. I mean I know and enjoy the history so maybe that's why. 5d

Good movie... GREAT book.

I was watching the Spanish princess, and there are many similarities but a little different, I‘m not a big fan of this queen like I was Elizabeth, who is long gone by now!

I have enjoyed the Boleyn Story tremendously. The drama surrounding the Tudor court, the royal family and King Henry was enough to keep me turning the page!

I must admit that I have never seen the movie, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
The Tudor court, with all it's rules, gossip and scheming is fascinating.

Birdsong28 As usual the book is so much better. I have read this a few times and I just get sucked in every time. 📚📖 3w
Scochrane26 I haven‘t watched the movie or tv show either. I‘m not good w/ beheadings on tv. This was the first book of hers I read & loved it. (edited) 3w
Yoricke_SouthAfrica I must admit, after reading this book, I am a bit curious to watch the movie... but I have so many books to read 🤣 3w
