Thank you for all the spooky goodies :) Thank you for this wishlist book. I've only recently read Wolf Hall and although I wasn't in love with it, I liked it enough to want to read the second one. The labels are great, I've got a pile of books waiting to be registered but I'd been waiting for labels from the BC store, which is taking ages. So I can get them sorted today :) Loving the skulls, sweets and drinking chocolate! And thank you for the lovely letter.

As for the HGG, I'm going to save that until Christmas and I will open the Christmas card in December. It's my first of the year!

This was a massive improvement on Wolf Hall and I was kept gripped throughout the book. The last days of Anne Boleyn were a huge moment in history and it is one of the most fascinating.

In this version of events, it is told through the eyes of Cromwell. It is well known he brought about her downfall but this book makes you think about his reasonings and that maybe he didn't do it out of malice but only to not end up with the same fate as the Cardinal.

It seems like it was very dangerous game to hold any position at Court, I wonder if everyone was filled with anxiety, wondering when they would be next. I also thought more about Jane when reading this. No one ever seems to say much about Jane in any book, which leads you to belive, she must have been very dull. I imagine she must have been very scared. When you see two Queens fall before you, you couldn't help but wonder if the same thing might happen to you.

If you struggled with Wolf Hall, I wouldn't write this series off, especially if you are a fan of Tudor fiction. I'm excited to read the third one and I also plan to do some research about what happened to Cromwell's son Gregory.
