    "Queen Victoria in Her Letters and Journals is an interesting read as it has some of the Queen's own drawings, and the internal struggle to give the crown over to her heir. Essentially, it is an intimate look at the internal fights and loves that went on in her life. It's quite fascinating, actually, and I think well worth a read!"

    "Gillian Gill's 'We Two: Victoria and Albert: Rulers, Partners, Rivals' is an entertaining read for the most part. I'm not so certain of it's merit as a history text. Nearly every other book on the subject of Queen Victoria has painted a picture of the particular royal, but this book flips that idea around. Where most have come to know Queen Victoria as relative demure this book suggests that she was confident and fairly brazen. Overall the book read more like a modern Hollywood interpretation trumpeting girl power than a look at history. As I said, it's worth reading for entertainment rather than historical accuracy."

    "I love books about Queen Victoria. My sister, unwittingly thought that How to be a Victorian would be something that I would be interested in because she thought it had to do with Queen Victoria!! It's a very informative nonfiction book but does not have anything at all to do with the Queen."
