  3. Safe, whew! The Kennedy Curse is already on my TBR - though it is actually a different book altogether, I discovered, when I went to double-check. I can't stomach much James Patterson, the one I have on my TBR is by Edward Klein.

    1. I liked it quite a bit. The earlier histories were much more interesting to me, but the last chapters were dedicated to Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher.

    2. Right.... So a bit of a wide interpretation of 'Queen' then..... [lol]

    3. I think 'queen' was more in reference to being a great ruler in the general sense even if they did not actually hold the title of Queen. Most of the women documented were actual queens. Like, when I say I am the Queen of Procrastinating"...which I am, for sure. I am procrastinating right now on reviews to talk to you and Judy instead! lol

    1. I really liked the earlier chapters, women before the 1600s. I just can't get into more modern history. The later chapters were dedicated to women of that later era, Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher.

  6. It happened once again. Zero new books in for me. Two finished from earlier hauls.
