Weekly Question

Which future book release is nr 1 on your wishlist at the moment?



I cant wait to get my hands on The Red Queen... it has been released but I havent found a copy in South Africa yet!!!

Here's a short description form GoodReads



The Red Queen (Cousins' War, #2) by Philippa Gregory




The second book in Philippa's stunning new trilogy, The Cousins War, brings to life the story of Margaret Beaufort, a shadowy and mysterious character in the first book of the series - The White Queen - but who now takes centre stage in the bitter struggle of The War of the Roses.

The Red Queen tells the story of the child-bride of Edmund Tudor, who, although widowed in her early teens, uses her determination of character and wily plotting to infiltrate the house of York under the guise of loyal friend and servant, undermine the support for Richard III and ultimately ensure that her only son, Henry Tudor, triumphs as King of England. Through collaboration with the dowager Queen Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret agrees a betrothal between Henry and Elizabeth's daughter, thereby uniting the families and resolving the Cousins War once and for all by founding of the Tudor dynasty

It's a pity you missed out on Exclusive Books' FlashMob Firesale yesterday - they were selling The Red Queen for R15!
I'm guessing they should be in stores by now, but obviously not as cheap :(

Oh my word!!!!!!!
I cant believe I missed out!

I did see a copy at CNA, but there were no prices on it and the staff there were NOT very helpful...

Maybe I should ask this for a christmas present from my cousin, he never knows what to get me :)
