Waiting on Wednesday #11

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Gilt by Katherine Longshore
Release Date: May 15th, 2012
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.

It has been too long since I have read a good historical fiction! Gilt sounds like exactly my kind of historical novel because it’s Tudor era, it’s got some scandal, and a love story. It looks like it will be released in the middle of this month so I don’t have to wait much longer but the anticipation has been killing me for a while now. Luckily, there are so many other great titles coming out this month that I think I will survive the wait.

What are you waiting on?

  3. I admit that I don't read much historical fiction myself, but one sometimes manages to worm its way into my reading pile. This one definitely sounds interesting, especially being from that era like you said. And I agree - soo many good books coming out lately!

  5. Same here! Historical fiction and I usually aren't the best of pals, but this one sounds SO COOL -- I mean, King Henry? The Tudor era? A girl named Kitty? (Not to mention that I've the cover is actually super shiny in person!) I really hope it's as amazing as it sounds! x)

    Awesome pick for your WOW this week, Darlene! I'm glad that there are so many awesome titles coming out too -- less time to think about the torturous waits, and more time to enjoy the other ones! ;) <3
