October 2019 Summary

Books

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.

Challenges

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.

Theatre

I saw we will Rock you.

Favourite musicals: We will you rock you VS Everybody’s talking about Jamie

Film

The Joker Film review

My views of Halloween 👻 🎃

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.

All Lit up at Hillsborough Park (see photos on Instragram Wonderwall360)
