    One thought on “Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor, England, 1544”

    1. Full review will be coming soon when I actually have free time that isn't taken up by summer school classes (BLEH!!!!)Until then, enjoy these hilarious snippets from the book that will make you blessedly glad you didn't live back then. Because unlike what sexy shows like The Tudors show, it was not a sexy time to be living in. "I cannot understand why we have to do this. We barely had baths three weeks ago!"THREE WEEKS AGO?!!! Now don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to skipping maybe one or two [...]

    3. This is a fantastic YA. Author Kathryn Lasky did a great job giving us a fictional glimpse into Elizabeth's thoughts and how her life could have been during her preteen years.

    4. one of my faves in, like, third grade. i tried to read some of the other books in the royal diaries series, but they didn't interest me as much. i liked this one about Elizabeth I -- of course, she was a cool person in real life. and actually, i learned a lot about her from this book without even realizing it. haha

    5. Beginning in the year 1544 to 1547, Elizabeth I of England started to chronicle her life in a diary, a present from her most trusted governess Kat. She vowed to always write truthfully about her most inner thoughts and feelings, even if that meant by doing so she was committing treason. Driven by a fear of discovery, Princess Elizabeth wrote about having to keep her diary a secret. During her years of traveling from castle to castle, she searched out the perfect hiding places for her journal, un [...]

    6. The setting of this book is 1544 when Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII, is twelve years old. Through her young astute eyes we observe court life filled with intrigue, back stabbing, poisoning, pomp and decay.At an early age Elizabeth knew that life could be ended suddenly at the whim of her corpulent, obese, powerful and illogical father. When she was a mere toddler, her mother Anne Boleyn lost her life as her head was violently severed. Unable to produce a male heir, instead, Anne birthed El [...]

    7. Queen Elizabeth I. Pretty much everyone knows she was a good queen and some people know what she accomplished during her reign (like outlawing wife-beating after 10:00pm, according to one of my Bathroom Readers), but not many really know much about her childhood and teenage years. In this installment of the Royal Diaries, Kathryn Lasky presents a Rated G version of Elizabeth’s teenage years for people ages 10-12.This book really contains no new information for me, but readers who have yet to d [...]

    8. The Tudor family is one of the most interesting royal families in word history. They are constantly surrounded by political intrigue, religious conflict and good old-fashioned scandal (sounds like a real life Game of Thrones episode). One of the most intriguing members of that family was Elizabeth the first. She was politically brilliant, very brave and was able to do things as a ruler that women were not allowed to do before. This book gives an interesting glimpse at her childhood with other no [...]

    9. I very much appreciate the research put into the books in this series. while it is historical fiction, it is based on real people. in this case a young Elizabeth. the reactions seen age appropriate and there are cultural notes and bits to give a good history lesson. I like the idea that the kids would become fond of their step mothers. it's also interesting to read of a progression of evil. I'd say these books are a primer to Philippa Gregory's books.

    10. One of the very first books I can remember getting myself as a child, having saved up my babysitting money and getting it from the Book flyers we used to get. Somehow my mother knew which one I was going to buy when I said I wanted one, so she must have known of my history love before I did! It's one of the things that sparked my love of history that's still there today, and is definitely an excellent choice to introduce young children to the Tudor era and Elizabeth I.

    11. I was really pleased to find a My Story in the school library that I hadn't read. The story of Elizabeth is about how Queen Elizabeth spent her days as a child. It must have been curious for her growing up when her own brother was a child king. The author cleverly make syou understand hwo live would have been in those days.

    12. This was the first royal diaries book I ever read and is the best in my opinion. It started my love for tudor history and royal history as well. The book (obviously written like a diary) discusses how she longs for her father, how it feels to exiled, and shows her love of Robin Dudley. I still read it from time to time and still enjoy it even as an adult.

    13. I like the historical accuracy but it was a bit to graphic for my taste.I felt sorry for Elizabeth because she did't know if her father loved her, but it made me grateful that I never have to question my Dad's love for me. :)

    14. This book was full of interesting facts. I liked this book because it told her life story just from a journal. I think that was smart and creative. This was a nice was to make social studies kind of interesting!

    15. The Royal Diaries series never disappoints. A juicy, detail-filled book into Elizabeth I's early life. A very enjoyable read.Side note: I've never found so many typos in a book before, from actual facts to grammatical errors.

    16. My Story were the books which ignited my love of reading so I love going back to them to see how far I have come. Keeping in mind these novels are aimed at younger readers, even being a bit too old for these, I still enjoy them. They are easily written with the right amount of daily life vs historical fact to keep interest. To me they seem a little boring because not much happens but sometimes you just need an easy break from reading lengthy novels. This royal story of Princess Elizabeth was wel [...]

    17. I'm marathoning this entire series right now, and this installment is one of the books I read as a kid, so I won't be counting it for my 2018 Reading Challenge.I kind of have mixed thoughts about this one, though I can say this much-Lasky perfectly captures Elizabeth's voice. I suppose this is exactly like what a young English princess in the 1500s would sound like, even if her voice happens to be somewhat insufferable on given occasions. Unfortunately, it's that voice that manages to drag the d [...]

    18. The fictionalized journal of a historical figure makes for conflicting opinions when you are reading it. I'm not sure what would be accurate and what wouldn't be, and then a part of my brain wakes up and points out that all of History is hearsay anyway so I should just stop caring and keep reading already.I'm massively skeptical of the portrayal of Elizabeth as the goodhearted and compassionate child she is here. That said, book!Elizabeth's understated ambition, as well as her conflicting love a [...]

    19. When I read this as a kid it was one of my more favorite books from this series. Just like dear America I didn't really appreciate the books for what they are. Being diary form it's hard to work up suspense over events that are happening like you can in the conventional form of prose. I'm reading them now and appreciating them as a fun way for me to learn about a people and a place long gone. And for that reason enough I found this book very good. You can learn a lot about this time period and w [...]

    20. The Royal Diaries series can be really hit-or-miss, especially when you re-read them when you're older. I recall being disappointed by many of the books which, despite Tim O'Brien's lovely cover art and my interest in history, bored me into a stupor. Fortunately, Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor is one of the stronger books in the series and holds up very well! Kathryn Lasky paints the young future queen as an intelligent, lively, and highly practical character with an engaging narrat [...]

    21. I remember reading this as a kid was what first got me interested in the Tudors and the Renaissance, so it was fun to go back and read it. It's obviously well-researched and it feels appropriate for the age while not being "dumbed down" for the kids reading it when it comes to some of the darker parts of living at court. Elizabeth I has been written about and portrayed many times, but few focus on her childhood, which is strange because I think it must have formed who she became in the rest of h [...]

    22. This was probably one of my favourites of the series, if not THE favourite. I remember reading it multiple times, and it really go me started on a Tudor-kick back in the day. Plus, I was fascinated with the descriptions and talk of beheadings. Apparently I was a subconsciously blood-thirsty little girl.

    23. This is a very interesting book about Elizabeth I, the Tudor Rose. It is written as a diary while she was a young girl whose father was King Henry VIII during his latter days. Just like any girl's diary some of it is simple girly responses to daily happenings around her. Other times we see the inner workings of Henry's court. Overall a very intriguing view of King Henry's court.

    24. I loved these books as an adolescent, I collected them all, I read and re-read them. I went on to be a history major and librarian and I think that it is in no small part due to books like these that made history feel alive to young women in a way that many/most of the books at the time did not.

    25. This book was a really great historical fiction diary of Queen Elizabeth the 1st. I would re-read it again, and especially now since it's been a while since I've read it, but I remember absolutely adoring it! This book started my love and interest for London,England and Queen Elizabeth the 1st!
