The Wild Queen: The Days and Nights of Mary Queen of Scots
The Good: Meyer always gets the history aspect of the novel right on. This is no different, through her writing I felt like I was not reading about France or Scotland, but that I was in France and Scotland. I also got a good mental image of the clothes and faces of everyone.
The Bad: The downside of this book can be summed up to one word; Mary. Mary, Mary, Mary... She made ALL of the wrong choices! ALL OF THEM! I felt so freakin frustrated reading about her making all of these horriable errors! Seriously I kept face palming and muttering 'girl you so going to be offed' over and over while reading this. lol
The Book: This book was a frusterating read but Meyer's writing did make as entertaining as it could be. Do keep in mind that Meyer is writing a historical novel; in which it follows the true events of Mary's life. In this case Mary was just was not the brightest nor the most logical, which always spells disaster in court life. I honestly think it was the subject matter that brought down this book. I would only recommend this book to the Carolyn Meyer fans. If you are not a fan of hers; as in you don't care to read everything she has wrote, go ahead a skip this one.
