    One thought on “Anne & Henry”

    1. A contemporary retelling of the romance between King Henry the VIII and Anne Boleyn, in which Henry is a wealthy, popular teen destined for political greatness, and Anne is the manic pixie dream girl who ensnares him and threatens to destroy the life he s worked so hard to build.Anne Boleynnic pixie dream girlmanic pixie dream girlmanic pixie dream girlI have a bad feeling about this.

    2. Actual rating 1.5 starsLike most people, I have a strange and unexplainable fascination with all things Tudor, especially Anne Boleyn Frankly, she was a badass in her own right and impacted English history so much even though this wasn t fully appreciated until many years after her unjust sentencing and beheading Plus, I happen to love the Showtime TV series The Tudors for three very delicious reasons Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Henry Cavil and Natalie Dormer Meyers in particular was a spectacular Hen [...]

    3. A a contemporary version of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn s courtship I am excited Confused Does it end with him chopping her head off

    4. THIS WAS AWFUL SO FREAKING AWFUL I get that this is a modern day retelling of henry tudor and anne boleyn s disastrous relationship but OMG I HATE THIS BOOK SO MUCH redeeming characters i mean if you re going to do a retelling try to put a twist on it so much slut shaming I HATE THIS BOOK

    5. A veces son las personas m s cercanas quienes m s da o nos hacen.Cuando vi este libro y me enter de que era un retelling en la actualidad de la tormentosa relaci n que tuvieron Anne Boleyn y Henry Tudor en el S XVI estaba emocionad sima porque, despu s de ver The Tudors y obsesionarme con toda la vida de Henry VIII, sencillamente quer a ver qu sal a de este experimento Y vaya fracaso Ni siquiera pude tomarme el libro como uno de esos que me saca de un par n lector o uno muy sencillo que leo para [...]

    6. Un retelling sobre la relaci n de Henry Tudor y Anne Boleyn Mi lado nerd estaba que se mor a de curiosidad por ver c mo adaptaban a la vida moderna varias cosas, sobre todo la decapitaci n, MorbosaModeOn, y estuvo todo muy, muy bien elaborado y pensado Me gust.Quien no conozca la historia por ah lo revolea por la ventana, pero quienes s EL regocijo.Edito y voy a pecar de traga insoportable me da risa y me deprime la cantidad de reviews negativos por el final inesperado Chicos, no es culpa de la [...]

    7. I have always been fascinated by Tudors history, Henry VIII s and Anne Boleyn s story especially When I found out about this modern re telling, I knew I would be all over it as soon as I got my hands on it Unfortunately, my big expectations were not met as it happens quite often with titles by Simon Pulse In this case, great blurb and premise does not guarantee a good read So what exactly did go wrong Here are main points discussing what did not work for me in Anne Henry 1 There were almost none [...]

    8. First I must admit as soon as I heard about this book I basically harassed and or stalked the author Dawn Ius to get a copy I believe she felt so sorry for me and my pathetic attempts that she sent me a copy to basically shut me up Seriously, though Dawn I appreciate everything you ve done and I loved every word Secondly, the cover PERFECTION It s everything I expect of a modern day Anne Henry.I have always had a fascination with the Tudors and Anne Boleyn When I found out this was a modern vers [...]

    9. Thank you Edelweiss for providing me a DRC in exchange for an honest reviewThe blurb is a lie This is not a contemporary retelling of the love story between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn where Anne is the manic pixie dream girl and Henry is the king who falls for her charm No, this book is where Henry is manic pixie dream boy who breezes into Anne s life AND COMPLETELY SCREWS HER OVER.I know people were worried about the manic pixie dream girl portrayal of Anne in this book, and let me tell you rig [...]

    10. You don t want to do this, Henry She will ruin you Henry Tudor has his whole life planned for him after graduating Medina High School as valedictorian, he s expected to go to Harvard University, major in political science, and become a hot shot senator like his father was Like his brother Arthur was supposed to be But Arthur is dead, and Henry is left to follow in his footsteps Problem is, it s not what he wants He s always been Arthur s follower, trying to be like him but never quite succeeding [...]

    11. Anne Henry is a modern retelling of Anne Boleyn and Henry Tudor s tragic relationship I was looking forward to reading the book because I enjoy retellings and even though I knew exactly how the book would probably end That being said, Anne Henry was an incredibly frustrating read for me First things first, the writing in Anne Henry was excellent Dawn Ius has a fantastic writing style, especially for a debut book and I can tell that she is one talented writer To be honest, the only reason I conti [...]

    12. Things you need to know right off the bat 1 This books is extremely addicting I read it in one sitting and couldn t be bothered to stop for basic human functions such as eating, using the bathroom, or breathing during certain scenes.2 This story stays true to the essence of the real Anne Boleyn and Henry Tudor, but it is NOT a strict retelling EXPECT CHANGES And be openminded and allow yourself to get lost in the story.What I love most about this book is how intimate it is Not in the sense of ro [...]

    13. Justice For Katherine 2K15The story of Henry VIII and his six wives is a well known and tragic one It s also tantalizingly juicy I ll be the first to admit, my shelf for Tudor non fiction is titled gossip rags for precisely this reason Love, sex, affairs, murder, Henry had it all So I can absolutely see the thought process behind a modern, high school update to the story.Henry Tudor is the only remaining son to a wealthy dynasty family Since his brother s death, he s been groomed to take Arthur [...]

    14. This had some elements I really liked I liked how Anne Boleyn s character was translated into an eyebrow raising, motorcycle riding teenage rebel, and the way many of the real life people of the time were brought into the book There was some good, fun scene setting, like the costume party and the scene at the abandoned theater.However, I could never really understand why this contemporary Anne was interested in Henry He seemed a little too conventional and boring for her I mean, we will never re [...]

    15. 3.5 starsI ve always loved the story of Anne Boleyn, so I was instantly intrigued by a modern retelling I loved the duel POV we got Anne and Henry are both interesting characters and being in their heads was like a car crash I couldn t look away from There were a few sweet moments, but the attraction and intensity is the main event The group of friends, led by Catherine and John, were a perfect substitution for court Obviously, I knew there wasn t going to be a HEA, but I could have never expect [...]

    16. In tutta onest non facile recensire questo libro una recensione negativa ovvia, ma sapevo che sarebbe stato brutto Enrico VIII e Anna Bolena in un retelling YA ambientato in un liceo americano Sapevo che probabilmente sarebbe stato offensivo e che sicuramente avrebbe massacrato la storia, quindi ha senso che mi lamenti perch come mi aspettavo Ma sono un insopportabile pignola quindi comincio con un elenco di cose che immaginavo non sarebbero apparse nel libro, o almeno non come sono successe il [...]

    17. I wanted this one to be a goodie, but as soon as I finished it Errrr nooo it went downhill It actually started incredibly well and having to do a modern retelling of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII is a hard thing to do I just didn t understand how easily Henry was persuaded by his friends and family And that trial What was that He just said it wouldn t have to come to that and then it happened I don t even know if I believe Anne s story but you can t help but admire her attitude about not givin [...]

    18. This retelling of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII isn t working for me It reads like Gossip Girl than it does a contemporary retelling Katherine of Aragon casted as a Barbie blonde For real She is like a goodie two shoe Catholic school girl than a devious cheerleader.just my opinion I read the first fifty pages, but I had to put it down I just didn t care about Anne DNF.

    19. Want to see bookish things from me Check out my Youtube Channel youtube channel UCfer3.5 Stars This book is a loose retelling of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn set in the modern day I really liked Anne as a character She was spunky and sassy with an attitude you didn t want to mess with But she was also sensitive and caring I liked Henry for the most part, but I think he was too easily swayed by others opinions, which pissed me off I really enjoyed how the story was told in dual point of view [...]

    21. This book was perfection from start to finish I love the real history of Anne and Henry and I was a little nervous going in How would it stand up to a modern retelling Answer, it s amazing Henry is spot on as a spare who suddenly finds himself the heir After the death of his older brother, all his family s political and social expectations fall firmly on his shoulders The problem is, he s unsure who he really is and what he really wants Enter Anne Boelyn So often she s portrayed as a conniving, [...]

    22. My thanks to Simon Pulse Point of View Dual Henry Anne Writing First Person Present TenseSetting Genre Young Adult Contemporary Romance It started out pretty interesting I did like it at first and thought the whole thing was quite refreshing However, I lost interest in the story after having read about half of it To me, it was numbingly boring.I couldn t care less for the characters Frankly, I didn t like any of them Not Anne, Not Catherine, and especially NOT Henry.

    23. So I say to myself at 9 o clock PM, I ll just start this one and see how it is because you ve been anticipating this book for close to 10 months, just read a few chapters to get the feel for itI m not really sure why I lied to myself knowing full well I would not stop until I finished I have many feelings right now and all of them good I mean, I hate everyone right now but only because this book was so amazingly done Can t wait to write my review AnneBoleynIsForeverMyHomegirl Full Review at Bell [...]

    24. I received an ARC copy of this book, thanks to Edelweiss slight spoilers for the ending of the book below I ve never read a book by Dawn Ius, and I actually think this might be her debut young adult novel I saw some previous reviews for this book on , and then half of the reviews I saw were three or less stars, which had me a little nervous I thought I was going to hate the book I actually ended up enjoying it a lot then I thought I would.Wait, I m getting ahead of myself the synopsis of the s [...]

    25. Anne y Henry es una historia bastante sencilla, facil de leer, atrapa mucho y la recomiendo como para salir de un reading slump.Para ser un retelling quizas esperaba mas, pero tmb esperab que me gustara muyyyy poco al ser una historia llena de cliches.Aun asi me divirtio leerla y la recomiendo por ser agil y entretenida.El final me gusto, al menos eso fue diferente y tiene sentido que termine como lo hace, ya que la historia original de amor, no es tan perfecta.Rese a completa thesnowbook 20


    27. Qu librazo.Me gust much simo Me pareci un contempor neo muy original, divertido y completamente diferente de lo que estamos acostumbrados Cae un un par de clich s, s , pero por ejemplo en lugar del chico malo tenemos al chico rico e inteligente y en lugar de la chica correcta y educada tenemos a la chica fuerte y atrevida que no se hace la pobrecita ni por asomo Conoc a la historia real muy poco y por eso me esperaba cosas diferentes de los ltimos cap tulos del libro pero eso no hizo m s que sor [...]
