So my first ever early review copy did disappoint. It's hard when we're selecting, I sort of skim through the synopses and pick whatever sounds even remotely interesting. The more books I claim, the more likely I am to win one. I re-read the synopsis to this one after reading the book and was reminded why I chose it. It did seem interesting! But there were just too many irksome things in this book for me to appreciate the story itself. Not only were those things annoying, but they kept happening ...more

Tudor Rose is set in England in the 1500’s. It follows three girls who are competing for a position that would put them close to the queen. Based on the time period, setting, and a very general overview of the plot, I really thought I would enjoy this book. I wanted to, and I tried, but I really did not enjoy reading this book at all. When I started reading it, I felt like I had picked it up and started somewhere in the middle of a story, because there was so little backstory or character develo ...more

I recieved this book in exchange for a review, so here goes. I just couldn’t get through it. The opening scene (the purity test) isn’t historically accurate (the parents would have bribed the midwife if such a test was needed, not the girl’s friends& someone like Dr. Dee wouldn’t be present without a close connection to the girl’s family). Plus, at the time the novel takes place, Francis Walsingham would have just been entering Royal service and would have been one of William Cecil’s secreta ...more

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of this book and polished it off in short order! The opening chapter had me hooked and really set the tone for the whole book. What impresses me most is how relatable the story is even though it is historical fiction. The scenes played out in the book could be reset in any modern day high school simply by changing the location. I thought back to my own experiences growing up and realized how many Roses and Sybilles I knew. However, setting it in Elizabetha ...more

I got a copy of this book for my niece, who absolutely loved it! She has always been a voracious reader, but she literally could not put it down until she finished it. She than wanted to tell me all about the characters, going on and on about Avis and Rose and the others, and about what life must have been like back then. As a lark, I picked it up to read, and I actually really liked it too! Highly recommended.
