The Queen: History in an Hour

The Queen: History In An Hour by Sinead Fitzgibbon

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was part of a series called “History in an Hour” and understandably is a very quick, abridged look at the life of Queen Elizabeth II. For all of its brevity, I think it was well done and interesting.

I would be interested in reading their other offerings. I think they would provide a good jumping off point for historical studies.

Verity

Verity by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This was such a compelling read! I read it in two sittings, 25% on 12/8 and the rest this morning on 12/30/18. Likeable characters? Yes. Detestable characters? Yes. So much twistedness, that the book is finished and my eyes are still bugged out, asking myself, “What just happened?” At different parts of the book, I felt that any character could be the ultimate villain of the story. As a reader, it’s uncomfortable to not know who to trust and who to root for.

Colleen Hoover’s books typically mess with my heart and my emotions. This time, she was able to mess with my mind.
