Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel

Although the first couple pages of this sequel to Wolf Hall completely confused me and made me fear for what was to come, I ended up loving this book as much as its predecessor. (BTW, the confusion clears up. ;)) Mantel’s pitch-pefect tone and imaginative, insightful storytelling create a fantastic Cromwell. I’m sad that at some point these books are going to have to end. Despite all the various takes on the court of Henry VIII—with this one really aiming at historical accuracy—we all know Cromwell’s fate.
