Hey everyone! And happy Wednesday! I missed one or two weeks of Waiting on Wednesday because I went through some bad real life stuff. But I’m back now! And, I have to say that I’m definitely having a lot of fun with these posts, so you can expect for me to participate in this meme for quite some time!

Title: The Assassin’s Guide to Love and Treason
Author: Virginia Boecker
Genre: YA, Historical, Romance,
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (Hachette Book Group)
Published: October 23, 2018
When Lady Katherine’s father is killed for being an illegally practicing Catholic, she discovers treason wasn’t the only secret he’s been hiding: he was also involved in a murder plot against the reigning Queen Elizabeth I. With nothing left to lose, Katherine disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to fulfill her father’s mission, and to take it one step further–kill the queen herself.
Katherine’s opportunity comes in the form of William Shakespeare’s newest play, which is to be performed in front of Her Majesty. But what she doesn’t know is that the play is not just a play–it’s a plot to root out insurrectionists and destroy the rebellion once and for all.
The mastermind behind this ruse is Toby Ellis, a young spy for the queen with secrets of his own. When Toby and Katherine are cast opposite each other as the play’s leads, they find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another. But the closer they grow, the more precarious their positions become. And soon they learn that star-crossed love, mistaken identity, and betrayal are far more dangerous off the stage than on.
