Bout Of Books 17 Day 4

Well I have to admit that I didn't read much on Day 4.  I only had time to read in bed and I only read for an hour.

I read 6 % of

Even though I haven't read much on the 4th day I am still proud of myself because I did read the 4 books I wanted to read this week.

Three Sisters, Three Queens (The Tudor Court #2) by Philippa Gregory *Review*

* I received a copy of this book for my honest review*

As sisters they share an everlasting bond; As queens they can break each other’s hearts.

“There is only one bond that I trust: between a woman and her sisters. We never take our eyes off each other. In love and in rivalry, we always think of each other.”

When Katherine of Aragon is brought to the Tudor court as a young bride, the oldest princess, Margaret, takes her measure. With one look, each knows the other for a rival, an ally, a pawn, destined—with Margaret’s younger sister Mary—to a sisterhood unique in all the world. The three sisters will become the queens of England, Scotland, and France.

United by family loyalties and affections, the three queens find themselves set against each other. Katherine commands an army against Margaret and kills her husband James IV of Scotland. But Margaret’s boy becomes heir to the Tudor throne when Katherine loses her son. Mary steals the widowed Margaret’s proposed husband, but when Mary is widowed it is her secret marriage for love that is the envy of the others. As they experience betrayals, dangers, loss, and passion, the three sisters find that the only constant in their perilous lives is their special bond, more powerful than any man, even a king.


I usually love Philippa Gregory's books but unfortunately I struggled to read this one. I didn't find it that engaging and I actually got bored with this book at some parts.

I found Margaret to be a whiny self-centered person and I just couldn't stand her.

I will still be reading more of Philippa Gregory's books but I just couldn't get into this one like I did with previous ones I have read.

I give this 2 out of 5 stars.

If you want to purchase this book, it is now out online and in stores near you. If you would like to support Canadian Book Addict you can purchase this  book on amazon
