** Henry VIII marries Catherine Howard ** .
.
Henry VIII married his fifth wife Katherine Howard #onthisday 477 years ago on the 28th July 1540 at Oatlands Palace. .
.
Katherine is believed to have been 17 at the youngest, while Henry was 50. .
.
She was the niece of Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk, and first cousin to Henry's wife Anne Boleyn. .
.
This also meant that she was a second cousin to Anne and Henry's daughter Elizabeth (future Elizabeth I) as well as her stepmother. .
.
Katherine and Henry's marriage was made public on the 8th August, with prayers being said in the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court Palace.
.
.
On the same day that Henry and Katherine were married, Thomas Cromwell went to the block...
.
.
Gareth Russell's book "Young & Damned & Fair: The Life and Tragedy of Catherine Howard at the court of Henry VIII", describes this event in perfect detail. I have the book a 5 star review on Goodreads and Amazon. .
.
It is truly a terrific masterpiece reexamination of the life of this misunderstood and poorly perceived Queen.
.
.
Like Eric Ives with Anne Boleyn, Anne Somerset with Elizabeth I and Antonia Fraser on Marie Antoinette, Gareth Russell has written the definitive book on Catherine Howard and deserves to be seen as the authority on this subject.

Pictured bottom is Oatlands Palace as it would have looked in the 16th century. If you visit Oatlands today, walk further down the hill from Oatlands Park Hotel towards Weybridge, and that is the site of where the Palace stood.

Have you seen the cover for CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE by @tadeyemibooks? We'll... NOW YOU HAVE! We're kind of in love with literally everything about it. We can't WAIT to read this book. Is anyone else counting down the days til March 6? 😍😍😍
--
CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE by Tomi Adeyemi
--
In a world where magic has disappeared and magis, once revered, are targeted by a ruthless king, Zélie has always feared she would share the fate of her mother, killed at the hands of the king’s guards when Zélie was just a child.

Now, at seventeen, Zélie has a chance to bring magic back to the land of Orïsha. With the help of her brother Tzain and the fugitive Crown Princess Amari, she sets off on a journey to restore her people’s magical abilities. In order to succeed, they’ll have to outwit and outrun Prince Inan, who is hell-bent on ridding the world of magic.

In the face of danger, death, and star-crossed romance, Zélie must grapple with the ramifications of bringing magic back to her people -- and come to terms with her own powers.

Sorry I was inactive yesterday, I was busy SCREAMING AT MY BOOKMAIL!! Which one do I read first, HELP! I'm so in love 😍 •• Happy Friday friendssss!

It's Friday, which means it's time to meet a new bookstagrammer! Say hello to Julia, aka @thebiblionet Her love for books is felt through her beautiful book reviews and IG account. The reason why she joined the book community is inspiring and resonates with me. She submitted her review in the June Contribute on My Husband's Wife. I was so thrilled since this book has been on my TBR for a while. Say 👋🏼 to Julia and check out her full review. Link in my bio. 👋🏼 Julia! ❤️ •
So who's Julia? Let's meet her! In her own words: Julia recently joined the Bookstagram and book blog community after realizing her passion for helping authors share their stories. On her Instagram, @thebiblionet and her blog, thebiblio.net, Julia frequently posts about fiction literature, life as a bookseller, and her recent conquest to complete the Harry Potter series 20 years too late. She is always excited to connect with other readers and expand her never-ending TBR list. Julia hopes to combine her love of literature and background in marketing in the future to continue connecting with readers across the globe.

Paul from the basement would like to share his #staffpickfriday ! 🦇🦉🦇 "Court of Owls (along with following City of Owls) is the beginning of New 52 Batman, so it's a great place for new readers to start, and a satisfying story on its own. Capullo's artwork, and some unique formatting, draw the reader into Snyder's story about a malevolent secret society under the surface of Gotham." 💥 Can't wait to read? Find this on the 2nd floor! 💥•• #staffpick #bookstagram #readstagram #bookrecommendation #recommendedbook #book #batman #comics #comic

The lovely Allison from @the_book_darling tagged me in #midyearfreakoutbooktag which was really fun, since it meant I got to go back and look at what I've read so far this year! 63 books people! That's nuts! Tagged a few friends to play too. Cheers to *almost* the weekend!
🌿Best Release of '17: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. Loved Eleanor's character and how the story progressed right up until the ending. Definitely a book I can see myself re reading in the future!
🌿New Release on my TBR: Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka @danyakukafka . SO EXCITED to read this one! That's all. Just really excited.
🌿Most Anticipated Release of '17: The Goddesses by Swan Huntley @swanhuntley !
🌿Biggest disappointment: I really disliked Dead Letters. Which was disappointing to me because I enjoyed the concept and the premise, but by the end felt really let down with the characters and story altogether.
🌿Biggest surprise: The Seven Husband's of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid @tjenkinsreid . I wasn't expecting to love this one as much as I did but wow. Also The History of Bees by Maja Lunde. I wasn't sure what to expect with this book and I ended up LOVING IT.
🌿Favorite new author: Ummm so many. Sarah Schmidt @ikillnovel (See What I Have Done). Cannot say enough how much I enjoyed her writing (as unsettling as it was) in this book. Can't wait to see what she writes next! Jac Jemc @jacjemc (The Grip of It). Maja Lunde (The History of Bees).
🌿Favorite new character: Eleanor Oliphant. Obviously.
🌿Book that made me cry: Hourglass by Dani Shapiro @daniwriter. I cried through many sections, her writing is so powerful.
🌿Book that made me laugh: All Over the Place by Geraldine DeRuiter @theeverywhereist Seriously. I want to be best friends with this girl. .

It's Friday so I've got a #bookrecommendation for y'all! I read The Regulars by Georgia Clarke last summer and enjoyed it quite a bit. 💕⠀
•••⠀
By now y’all probably know that I love a character driven story and The Regulars delivered on that! The story is about 3 young women in their early 20’s who suffer from low self-esteem for varied reasons. One day an acquaintance of one of the girls gives her a bottle of purple potion (for lack of a better word) called Pretty. With just one drop of Pretty Evie, Willow, and Krista turn into gorgeous mega babes (based on society’s definition). The effects last for one week, so they find themselves drawn to trying it out, just once. As I’m sure you can guess they each end up using it more than once and create their own tragedies and heartaches as a result. They also get lucky break in their respective professional lives as a result of using the pretty. It implies that the reason for this is their looks, but their new found confidence also plays a role.⠀
•••⠀
All in all, I thought that this story was highly relatable for any woman in her 20’s. I liked the message this story communicates. I thought it was a light-hearted novel with a good message for young women and enjoyed it because of that. ⠀
•••⠀
The paperback edition comes out on August 8th! Y'all should check it out if you're looking for a light hearted read to enjoy the last days of summer. ⠀

⭐️⭐️⭐️ It took a while for me to warm up to the book and understand kind of where the book was going, but on the 77th page I said to myself "oh this actually might get good". Not much else to say; I don't want to spoil anything, but it got better than I expected it to. .

Are you entrenched in the ebook phenomenon or do you still need the touch & feel of a printed paperback?

I was chit-chatting with a friend who asked me about the length of my books. What she specifically wanted to know about was the number of pages. Like me, she’s a #kindle crack addict who doesn’t want a physical book so she has no idea how fat the spine would be on one.

Happy weekend, everyone!! I vow to be lazy and relax loads this weekend 😄 What are your plans? 😊

Day 29 of #bookishgalsjuly is bookish map! This is one of the two maps from An Ember in the Ashes by @sabaatahir , which is relevant because Day 29 of #grimdragon is asking me to describe my CR in five emojis or fewer! My CR is A Torch Against the Night, and I feel like this: 😍😍😍😍😍 I'm still very early into the book so I can't sum up the story itself in emojis so well 😄

What are you reading this weekend?

This book was surprisingly very good, with Hester Prynne, a woman condemned to wear the letter 'A' on her bosom for committing adultery, becoming, by the end of the novel, a protofeminist figure. Never denying it, Hester instead simply accepts her 'sin' as a part of her life, of herself. I wouldn't have liked the novel as much as I did, however, had Hawthorne not constructed the narrator of the novel as he did. The narrator draws up parallels between them, and despite his assertions of her 'sin', the narrator's tone indicates his admiration of her as a strong-willed, independent woman. .

I highly recommend this if you haven't already read it. If you have, what did you think of it? .

So I decided to go with a new theme because I just was not having fun with the other one. Luckily I bought this little table which gave me new inspiration. And finally buying this illustrated Game of Thrones edition just completes the look for my first new theme picture 😍


I'm finally enjoying a well deserved break from uni and work and it has been wonderful so far. Haven't really read a lot but going to try doing that today 😍 ☄

Also I've been planning my big trip to America next year (it's just two weeks but still very big for me). I'll be visiting Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York in April next year. Which will also be around the time that I've graduated from my bachelors degree 🤗 I'm so excited 🦄

Hoping to either take some more photos today, or finish Crimson Bound so that I can start Crown of Midnight, or do some writing 😊
My glitter is from Shine Shack, and I love it except when you wear it and get one of the little moons or stars in your eye!!!😭 the GORGEOUS Night Court coaster I got from @fableandblack once again 🌟
