Happy birthday to Queen Victoria!
I love the way Daisy Goodwin writes and how she pulls you into that time period
Sadly I haven't met them. If I met Claire Foy or Jenna Coleman I would most likely bow haha
Ok I‘m finishing up this book during #LitsyPartyofOne and I just came across the most bizarre discrepancy. The author says that Victoria, Princess Royal was born at 2 am on November 21, 1840. But literally 3 pages later, it has this page from Queen Victoria‘s journal which clearly states the Princess was born at 2 in the afternoon on Nov 21. And there‘s no asterisk saying Victoria was mistaken or anything. How could an editor miss that???
I chose this book as my pick for the #LetterV challenge in #LitsyAtoZ, but I needed to finish Season 1. I‘d watched the first 2 episodes on PBS, but got too busy with school. So I got the DVD at work and watched all 8 eps in 3 days. I then got the book, which I will finish during #NonfictionNovember. Of course, bingeing Victoria made me get back into TV so I watched 4 episodes of Season 3 of Kimmy Schmidt last night instead of doing any reading...
I love the disney infinity figures. I don't use them on the game, I just collect them. These are the ones I have so far. I think the Jack Skellington one is my favourite. I have Alice from Alice in wonderland and also Mulan but they would fit in the picture 😂
I've still to read The Victoria Letters but I hope to get to it before the new series comes out.
How is everyone?
Jenna Coleman as Victoria and Queen Victoria herself.
Jenna plays Victoria really well in my opinion.
I tried to write facts about Queen Victoria in Korean. Pretty sure most of this is wrong but hey I tried. I know my handwriting sucks.
My head hurts.
Since I finished this in November. I still look through it and read some of her diary entries. Such a beautiful book.
I'm starting to see a pattern here.
This is such an interesting book and beautiful book.
I didn't know much about Queen Victoria when I picked this up but I'm glad I did.
Even though most of the pictures are from the new ITV show (which is also really good) it's still really pretty and is full of information.
