Waiting On...


With so many great books coming out, how are you to know what to even be on the look out for? Have no fear! Your faithful Young Adult librarians have been searching ahead to make sure you stay on top of the great teen literature that's out there! So, make note if you like what you see, because soon these fantastic books will be appearing in a library branch near you!


Today we are waiting on...


VIII by H. M. Castor
Published: August 20th 2013 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Destined for greatness... tormented by demons.

VIII is the story of Hal: a young, handsome, gifted warrior, who believes he has been chosen to lead his people. But he is plagued by the ghosts of his family's violent past and once he rises to power, he turns to murder and rapacious cruelty. He is Henry VIII.

H.M. Castor does for Henry what Hilary Mantel did for Thomas Cromwell - VIII is Wolf Hall for the teen and cross-over market.
