Excellently researched with just enough detail to satisfy my curiosity but without being boring! This is geared to a #YA audience with the pictures and some of the explanations, but it wasn‘t too simple or basic either. I‘ve watched the Masterpiece show Victoria and this book was a nice accompaniment. Queen Victoria was definitely against #promiscuous behavior-she‘d had enough of that with her uncles! She had very strong morals! #heatofjuly

I am sure that Queen Victoria hosted at least #onedance at Windsor Castle when she was Queen. I haven‘t read this yet but it has awesome artwork and seems full of great information about Queen Victoria and this time period! I‘m hoping my 9 year old will be intrigued! #heatofjuly

I've been in a bit of a reading and posting slump the past few days. However, I did just finish this biography of Queen Victoria. Isn't it beautiful? As proof of it also being interesting and well-written, my husband would tell you that I have wanted to talk about Queen Victoria and all the English royalty a lot the past week! I hope this weekend's readathons and turning in the review for this one will pick me back up to speed!
