Honestly, few series so consistently captivate me the way the Royal Diaries do Reading this as an adult, I wondered suddenly about the amount of historical research that goes into every page it s fantastically impressive, and made the read much interesting I m genuinely not a historical fiction person, but wow As usual, no complaints for books in this series, and I m now not so secretly hoping to find near book sales Best EPub, Mary, Queen Of Scots Queen Without A Country, France, 1553 Author Kathryn Lasky This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Mary, Queen Of Scots Queen Without A Country, France, 1553, Essay By Kathryn Lasky Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please read And Make A Refission For You Oh the memories This book was primarily responsible for the beginning of my love for the historical enigma that is Mary, Queen of Scots I especially enjoyed learning about the fascinating intrigues that made up the French court, how Catherine de Medici may have been perceived, and the tight friendships between both Mary and Francis, and Mary and her lucky four leaf clover friends, all also called Mary Well written and engaging, I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in history told through a personal lens.
another solid installment in this series originally posted on Small ReviewI don t have much to say about this book I read it a while back and then stalled on the review, to the point where I don t really remember all that much Which, I guess, says a lot in and of itself As an entry in The Royal Diaries series, this one isn t bad, but it didn t really stand out much either Given their short length made even shorter by the diary format and big historical notes section padding out the back end and overall solid recounting of history, I don t think it s ever a waste of time to read a Royal Diaries book, this one included That said, I enjoyed Carolyn Meyer s take on Mary in The Wild Queen a lot.
Another great book with too early of an ending.
I thought the story was all right if you don t mind your kids reading about adultery and sexual harassment The Epilogue was poorly done, only 1 2 a page, mentioning the fact that Mary did marry Francis Then it had a long paragraph about Mary s cousin, Queen Elizabeth of England It mentioned nothing about the fate of Mary, Queen of Scots Then I read the Life in France section and it explains the Reformation Again, nothing about the fate of Mary It isn t until you get to the Stuart family tree on page 187, down near the bottom, it says, oh, yeah, Mary was convicted of treason and beheaded.
I remember reading this book for the first time in the fourth grade, and now they have a historical drama show called Reign based on her life This, with the exception of Anastasia The Last Grand Duchess, has always been my favorite book from The Royal Diaries series Although I know that not everything is completely accurate, we were able to get a glimpse of how her life might have been, as well as understand many historical aspects of the book Although this series may be targeted towards Middle Grade, it was what sparked my love of history, and is one that I often miss reading.
Watching the TV show Reign so I got to keep up on my historical fiction Plus, I loved Queen Elizabeth s historical fiction diary that Kathryn Lasky wrote.
I went back to the grove where we had our picnic Alone, I attempted to listen to the sound of the water as it tumbled and the whisper of the leaves I wanted to still time and for one minute try to hear the strange music of eternity, for I do believe that this is from what poetry is created lost moments recovered and made timeless.
Re read this book after over a decade because I ve been wanting to since the show Reign came out I absolutely enjoyed this book, and it might be marketed as for kids, but it is just as enjoyable for adults, and the writing is great She even intersperses some mysteries throughout to keep you guessing and wanting.
I loved reading about Mary s thoughts and what life was like in the 16th century.
