TBR Tuesday: The Stolen One

TBR Tuesday: Showcasing all the books that are currently staring at you from your "Why aren't you reading me?" pile....

On my TBR

The Stolen One by Suzanne Crowley 
416 pages
Published by Greenwillow Books
When her adoptive mother dies, Katherine Bab takes the chance she has been waiting for her whole life: she moves from her country village to London, to uncover the secret of who she really is. Before long, Kat has become a favorite of Queen Elizabeth herself, and rumors are swirling - could fiery-haired Kat be the secret daughter of the Virgin Queen? Kat's got plenty of other things to figure out, as well . . . such as how to choose between her childhood love and two handsome men at court vying for her affection.
This smart, sensual novel drips with intrigue, period detail, and drama and will resonate with anyone who has ever longed to find his or her place in the world.

This cover caught my eye awhile back when I was in the mood for some historical intrigue, but I wasn't able to get my hands on a copy until fairly recently. But, though I look at this cover often and almost feel the same craving for historical intrigue, I just can't seem to muster it enough to want to bump something else to fit this into my schedule. I think mostly I just love her gigantic hair... Though if enough people were to tell me that it was excellent, compelling historical intrigue, I could maybe be convinced to bump it up...
Anyone read this one? Is it a keeper, or OFF WITH THEIR HEADS?

What's lurking at you from your TBR stack this week?


  1. This one has been staring at me for a long time now. If you do get a chance to read it I will certainly be back to see what you think!

  2. This book sat on my shelf for almost three weeks (or however long a book is checked out from the library). Sadly, I didn't get to it before I had to return it, so I'm not sure...I'm curious as well if it's worth the read.

  3. I've definitely been in love with this cover since I first saw it. I'm really intrigued by it and hope it's worth the read! Maybe it'll be one of those rebellious reads that we book bloggers randomly push everything aside for every so often. (And I'm discovering - I need to do that more...)

  4. This book sat on my shelf for months too, but I finally picked it up and read it. I am glad I did! If you like this time period, you're going to love this book. :)

    If you are still unsure, check out my blog for the review I wrote on it.


Tell me all your thoughts.
