Road Trip Wednesday/Debut Author Challenge
Today I'm hitting two posts with one stone:
YA Highway's Road Trip's topic, My Best Read/Listen of August, is also my number four Debut Author Challenge read/listen.
Don't get put off by the predominant nostrils on the cover...GILT is an amazing book.
Okay, I love historical, so I might be a bit biased.
It's the story of, Kitty, the best childhood friend of Catherine Howard, King Henry VIII's fifth wife.
From men in the maiden's chamber to royal court intrigue, betrayal and the bounds of friendship, this book has it all...with some love thrown in there too.
The content may be PG13 in detail, but it does deal with a lot of adult issues like marriage and such that are usually out of the YA realm.
Well done, Katherine Longshore. I look forward to reading more!
What about You? Read this yet? Any other debuts to recommend? What was your favorite August read?
