Alison Weir has singlehandedly turned me into a British history junkie, but Queen Isabella wasn’t as engrossing as I’d anticipated. To be fair, having a newborn (I started the book a mere week after Happy Fun Baby was born) isn’t exactly conducive to deep reading. Since I was only able to read a few pages at a time the pace seemed interminable, and I kept losing track of the players. Still, as with Weir’s past books, Queen Isabella provided a fascinating look into the inner workings of the British monarchy. I’m looking forward to a second reading (after the baby starts taking longer naps, I think).
