Default Doomed Queen Anne-Carolyn Meyer

Here's the summary from the back;

ANNE BOYLEN was born without great beauty, wealth or title, but she's blossomed into a captivating young woman--and she knows it. Determined to rise to the top, she used her wiles to win the heart of England's most powerful man, King Henry VIII. Not satisfied with the king's heart, however, she persuades Henry to defy everone-including his own wife-to make her his new queen.

This engrossing third novel in the award-winning Young Royals series tells Anne's fascinating story in her own voice-from her life as an awkward girl to the dramatic moments leading up to her beheading.

Wow. Anne was always so smart, if you ask me.
i mean, she messed up, but that wasn't really her fault. She shot to high, really. She should have went for the second highest.
Well, she did try that with henry percy, but....
xD

No. But when it costs my head...
She was well aware of the stakes, and she did a fine job getting Henry...but she couldn't hold him.
She messed it up for herself.
By over throwing Katherine of Aragon she amde it clear that she could be overthrown as well, see what I mean?
