While perusing It Ended Badly: Thirteen of the Worst Break-Ups in History, by Jennifer Wright...

This one is too pop culture-y for me to take seriously, but I enjoyed this line:

"Eleanor never responded because she had blocked Henry's number. Besides, she'd already overruled the pope in her last marriage. No one could expect her to take an archbishop
seriously" (page 41).


  1. This sounds right up my bookshelf!

    1. It's pretty hilarious - too pop-culture-y for research purposes. She gives lots of historical couples this treatment - I can't wait to see what she says about Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn!


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
