    "If you want to learn a more factual account of Anne Boleyn and the Tudors this is an account much more realistic than the often dramatized one found in many other books and TV shows. A great academic piece that is much more in depth and researched than many other books on Anne Boleyn. If you are interested in this topic, as I am, I would say that purchasing this book would be a smart move!!!"

    "The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn was a book recommended to me by a close friend since he knew that I was looking for something to read and enjoyed books about mistress and all that shenanigans. Therefore, I decided to give this book a try out just to see if it would live up to it's name. I would have to say I'm really impressed about the life of Anne Boleyn and her adventurous life."

    "Mary Boleyn comes across as a very sympathetic character overall, and we get to see Anne through her eyes, the good and the bad. While highly fictionalized (it's historical fiction, after all) this book does slide in a lot of historical context, dates, and references that are very factual. I'm a huge historical fiction fan and I found this one a page-turner."

    "As a sequel, I was much disappointed by the direction of the story flowing from Wolf Hall. I can't seem to justify my disappointment, but I would rather wait until the next chapter of the story to see if the story changes direction!"

    "I thought it was a well written book with some minor flaws i would not call it one of the best tho just because sometimes its hard to follow and the author inserts himself in the book which makes it kind of weird"
