Goodreads says, "In the Tudor age, ambition, power and charismatic allure are essential and Catherine Howard has plenty of all three. Not to mention her loyal best friend, Kitty Tylney, to help cover her tracks. Kitty, the abandoned youngest daughter of minor aristocracy, owes everything to Cat – where she is, what she is, even who she is. Friend, flirt, and self-proclaimed Queen of Misrule, Cat reigns supreme in a loyal court of girls under the none-too-watchful eye of the Dowager Duchess of Norfolk.  When Cat worms her way into the heart of Henry VIII and becomes Queen of England, Kitty is thrown into the intoxicating Tudor Court. It’s a world of glittering jewels and elegant costumes, of gossip and deception. As the Queen’s right-hand-woman, Kitty goes from the girl nobody noticed to being caught between two men – the object of her affection and the object of her desire.  But the atmosphere of the court turns from dazzling to deadly, and Kitty is forced to learn the difference between trust and loyalty, love and lust, secrets and treason. And to accept the consequences when some lessons are learned too late."

Will I ever get sick of the Tudor Court? Ha, probably not.  I am very interested to see how the Tudor Court will translate to YA historical fiction.  I'm sure it will be just as drama-filled as ever. I am such a sucker for a good historical read. What do you guys think?


  1. I am waiting on this one too. Excellent pick! I am not a huge fan of Catherine Howard but I do love Tudor history and historical fiction. Have you read The King's Rose by Alisa Libby? It is a YA book about Catherine Howard that was published a couple of years ago.
