  1. I read ‘The Boylen Inheritance’ last summer and it covered the marriage of Katherine Howard in it. I wonder how the two compare and if either of them are anything close to the truth! Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!

    1. That’s my absolute favourite of her books! So far it seems quite similar in terms of Katherine’s character, but I do feel Gregory tends to sensationalise a bit. I’d love to read more about Katherine Howard as these are the only 2 I’ve even heard of about her. Thank you! X

  2. I read A Clockwork Orange years ago and I’m still not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand, the writing is tremendous and the moral questions the book throws up are important and thought-provoking. On the other hand, spending time inside the head of a psychopath is never much fun :/

    I like the sound of a story from the point of view of Katherine Howard. She tends to get overlooked because she was so young.

    The Eyre affair sounds like fun! I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Agreed! I would love to read more about her. The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory also deals with her story and I loved that too.

      The writing actually really annoyed me with A Clockwork Orange. I understand that they use new slang but did every other word have to be incomprehensible?! I felt like it needed a glossary at the end.

  3. The Eyre Affair is a lot of fun and really clever, I hope you enjoy it! I’ve been thinking about re-reading it, as I first read it as part of a uni course along with a lot of other reading, so it’d be nice to properly absorb it.

    Thanks for stopping by my WWW post! 🙂

  4. I have been wanting to read A Clockwork Orange as well even though I’ve heard a lot of mixed things about it… Somehow I’ve never actually gotten a copy though, and in a way I’m not so sure if I should now. I hope you’ll enjoy your reads this week though!

    Happy reading! Here’s my WWW.
