  4. I hope you read The Sisters Who Would Be Queen soon, I've been wanting to read it forever and I'd love to know what you think!

  5. I thought The Secret History of the Pink Carnation was a lot of fun - it's certainly more in the chicklit style, but it enjoys its over-the-top antics so much. I couldn't help doing the same. Hope you enjoy!

  12. I read The Sisters Who Would be Queen in December. VERY good! I think you'll like it. Whole different view of Jane Grey than I've read before. Have fun reading these! Can't wait for the reviews on some of these.
