I LOVE Renee Rosen and was soo excited to be approved for an ARC of this book (THANK YOU NETGALLEY)! She is one of my favorite fluffy in the best way historical fiction authors.

Received an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review.

A book that makes you want to fall down the Wiki hole doing more research on everything in it! I love history; history of stuff, history of people, history of places! It can be a real time sucker... but I really don't care. If this appeals to you, read this book!
