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.

Game of Queens: The Women Who Made Sixteenth-Century Europe - Sarah Gristwood

Part I was an excellent introduction to this amazing cast of women. I would advise readers to have some knowledge of the political landscape of the era. The author does not spend a ton of time giving the reader background information but instead dives right into how things relate to the women being discussed.
