Waiting on Wednesday [2]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine - spotlighting books that haven't been released yet!

My Waiting on Wednesday this week is...

Anne & Henry By Dawn Ius
Expected Release Date: September 2015
Anne
Wild, brazen, mischievous, bewitching
Henry
Driven, haunted, charming, magnetic
Apart, they are bound to destroy themselves. Together, they are bound to destroy each other.
Henry Tudor's life has been mapped out since the day he was born: student president, valedictorian, Harvard Law School, and a stunning political career just like his father's. But ever since the death of Henry's brother—perfect, high-achieving Arthur—his family has been twice as demanding. And now Henry's trapped: forbidden from pursuing a life as an artist or dating any girl who's not Tudor approved.

Then Anne Boleyn crashes into his life.

Anne is wild, brash and outspoken. She is everything Henry is not allowed to be—or to want. But soon Anne is all he can think about. His mother, his friends, and even his girlfriend warn him away, yet his desire for Anne consumes him. Henry is willing to do anything to be with her. But once he has her, their romance could destroy them both.

Inspired by the true story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, Anne & Henry reimagines the intensity, love, and betrayal between one of the most infamous couples of all time.

I love the drama, scandal, and romance that screams from this book! I can't wait for it to be released later this year! I loved watching The Tudors television show and a modern day retelling of it in a teen lit definitely has me interested!

  7. I really like Henry VIII. I mean, not as a person, he was quite horrible. But he is interesting. And Anne Boelyn is probably my favorite of his none less than 6 wives.
    Also, I did quite enjoy The Other Boelyn Girl. So maybe I will like sort of the same story as a contemporary as well? It sure sounds interesting :)
