Waiting on Wednesday: Tarnish by Katherine Longshore


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I haven't yet read Katherine Longshore's Gilt, but it's on its way from Amazon as I type. I love stories set in Henry VIII's court and I'm really excited to read Ms. Longshore's take on Anne Boleyn.

Tarnish Cover Title: Tarnish
Author: Katherine Longshore
Genre: YA Historical
Publisher: Viking Juvenile
Release Date: June 18, 2013

Book Description (from Goodreads):

Anne 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.
