The girl with the pearl earring.
The girl 👧 with the pearl earring book review
In the run to Halloween 🎃 read the appropriately titled Dead 💀 Souls which was an Ian Rankin Rebus novel. It was set in Edinburgh, so I liked remembering my time in Edinburgh last year albeit the book was set whilst the parliament at the foot of Arthur’s Seat was just at a planning stage. Rebus in this book had a few cases ongoing at once.
Ange’s challenge: Read a book by a Victorian female author (bonus: one that’s new to you)
Read the follow up to Little women by so not a new female author. In this book the girls start to get married.
Kate’s challenge: Reread a Victorian book
I attempted to read a bit of Dracula 🧛♂️ which I first tried last year by candlelight.
Katie’s challenge: Read a Victorian book under 250 pages and/or over 500 pages
Lucy’s challenge: Read an underrated Victorian book
from the same year as your favourite Victorian classic
General challenge: Read by candlelight
Did not read much as even with 3 candles very hard to see book. Especially as my copy of Dracula 🧛♂️ has small print. I skipped Jonathon going to Transylvania and read a couple of letters between his girlfriend Mina and her friend Lucy.
I saw we will Rock you.
Favourite musicals: We will you rock you VS Everybody’s talking about Jamie
Enjoyed the Archers tonight which was all about Halloween 🎃 The characters largely agreed with my view of trick and treaters. There was also Jim scary Robert with a ghost 👻 story,
Saw Sheffield artist Joe Scarborough talk at Weston Park museum and got him to sign a poster (see photo on Instragram Wonderwall360). He is friendly, funny and love his proper Sheffield accent.
