Book A Week - Week 3!


This week's giveaway is The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory. You may recognize her name as the writer of The Other Boleyn Girl which was made into a major motion picture and all that jazz.

I absolutely love everything written by her and anyone I've ever talked to that has read anything by her has loved her as well. I'm currently reading another one of her novels that has nothing to do with the Tudor period called Wideacre that will be up for a giveaway whenever I finish it. :)

This book is from the perspective of three different women at the Tudor court; Jane Boleyn, Anne of Cleves, and Katherine Howard. It is told in chapters alternating between the three women and really paints an amazing picture of the time following Anne Boleyn's fall from grace.

You'll be sure to fall in love with the time period and the writer upon reading this book.

So comment away and maybe you'll be next week's winner!

*Book A Week books are pre-read copies of books I have pre-loved. :)

Oh! I so want to win this one!!! I read The Other Boleyn Girl last year and then went on to read Allison Weir's books The Six Wives of Henry VIII, The Children of Henry VIII and The Life of Elizabeth I. I know. I sound like such an exciting person, don't I? ;)

Anywho, I loved Phillipa Gregory. Let us know what you think of Wideacre when you finish it.

This looks really interesting. I was obsessed with all of the Henry VIII wives when I was younger. Count me in!

I read The Other Boylen Girl, and loved it, but I'm woefully lacking in any other titles. Maybe this is my big chance......

Oooh, this sounds like an interesting book! I love the idea of giving away the pre-read books, I may have to "borrow" this idea!
