Sorry kids, no feet.

I am a stay at home mom with three girls. All of the time I should spend cleaning or making things I see on Pinterest is usually spent reading instead. Pinterest can get expensive. The library is free. At least until I rack up the fines for overdue books. If I'm not reading something that interests me, I'm listening to my seven year old read to me about fairies or princesses or fairy princesses. If she's not reading to me, I'm reading to my four year old twins about Batman or Star Wars or Legos. We value diversity around here.

She-Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth - Helen Castor

At this point, I've read two chapters about Matilda and completely skipped over Eleanor. I'm on to Isabelle of France. When the first part focusing on Matilda, offered me nothing new, I jumped to the conclusion that Eleanor would offer me nothing new. The section on Matilda was quite disappointing. Most of the focus was on Stephen and his coup to take the crown. For a book that is suppose to be about the women of the various eras, there is very little type dedicated to the women themselves.
