Hello everyone,

 

While you can definitely keep posting on the topic of The Sisters Who Would Be Queen, it's time to pick the next book! So suggestions here, please, and I'll choose which one we'll read after seeing which book is the majority. Thanks!!

Have you guys read “The Last Boleyn” by Karen Harper yet? I'm sorry if you have, I'm new and didn't see anything on it in this section. Anyway I've been reading it and it's been pretty good so far, the only thing that's bugged me is that she paints Anne as having an extra finger but it's mentioned so little that it's easy to overlook.

 I like Brett's idea about either Threads  or The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn.

I rather enjoyed it, but then I like all of Suzannah Dunns' books.  She usually takes a secondary character of the main focus of her novels so we only see the historical figure through that persons eyes and I know a lot of people aren't fans of that particular style.  I liked 'The Confession of Katherine Howard' as it put a lot of emphasis on Katherine time in the Dowager Duchesses household and the way the author doesn't dumb down Katherine is a refreshing take too.

Hope you enjoy it!
