Tarnish (The Royal Circle #2)by Katherine LongshoreExpected publication: June 18th 2013 by Viking JuvenileAnne Boleyn is the odd girl out. Newly arrived to the court of King Henry VIII, everything about her seems wrong, from her clothes to her manners to her witty but sharp tongue. So when the dashing poet Thomas Wyatt offers to coach her on how to shine at court—and to convince the whole court they’re lovers—she accepts. Before long, Anne’s popularity has soared, and even the charismatic and irresistible king takes notice. More than popularity, Anne wants a voice—but she also wants love. What began as a game becomes high stakes as Anne finds herself forced to make an impossible choice between her heart’s desire and the chance to make history.
I LOVED Gilt. Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting to love it quite as much as I did mainly because it’s a story/time period that’s been told time and time again. Gilt managed to be refreshingly written and told from the POV of another individual making it feel like a brand-new story. Very excited for the next installment.
Have you read Gilt? Is it still on your TBR? If you’ve read it, did you love it?
