May was a good month for me for reading! I read a lot of books and, for the most part, really enjoyed them.
1. The Confessions of Katherine Howard by Suzannah Dunn.
Premise: The novel explores Katherine Howard’s before and during her marriage to the notorious Henry VIII.
Dunn is quickly becoming a new favourite historical author of mine. Her writing has a very modern tone without taking away from the Tudor setting. I didn’t enjoy this as much as I enjoyed The Lady of Misrule and I was disappointed by the ending, as I wanted to see how she handled Katherine’s execution.
Thank you to Getting Through Anxiety for tagging me!
1. INITIAL ATTRACTION – A book you bought because of the cover?
I had heard of the book and wanted to read it, but I mainly bought it because it was cheap and I wanted to add to my collection of Penguin Modern Classics…

- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
Technically still reading The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, though I haven’t picked it up for the last couple of nights. I’m not finding it particularly engaging, to be honest.
