My husband presented me with Wolf Whistle Politics and said, “This looked interesting. I thought you’d like it and that it would make you mad.” What can I say? The man knows me.
I watched the movie first. I know, I know - “ALWAYS read the book before you watch the movie!” And that is a good rule of thumb most of the time. But I love the actresses in Hidden Figures and the story looked awesome and I didn’t have time to read the book yet. (Yes, I know. “Excuses, excuses...”) SO, I watched the movie first. You know what? It made me want to read the book.
It’s pretty obvious where we heard about Floreat Queenie since we posted a review of Queenie’s Teapot last month. This is the second book in The Queenie Chronicles by Carolyn Steele.
We thought this would be the perfect time to review Floreat Queenie because it starts off right at Christmas. The chaos of the past year is seemingly subsiding, when Queenie accidentally manufactures some political drama by swearing during her televised Christmas announcement. This is then used by some shady characters with political motives to mobilize religious zealots into protesting the government.
Happy Day After Voting for our readers in the United States! We hope your election results give you some hope and most of all, motivation to change things in your communities both in and outside the political process. Now, onto the review!
I was recommended Queenie’s Teapot by my friend Deana, whose mother-in-law happens to be the author. She told me, “You will love this book so much!” and she was right. I bought Bethany a copy for Christmas and have also gifted a copy to my mom, who I knew would love it as well.
