This was fabulous! I love the Masterpiece series, so it‘s no surprise that I loved it, I suppose, but it is beautiful and very well done. #bookreview #history

Victoria is my newest bookish obsession!

AnneCecilie I love that series and am eagerly awaiting season 3. I will definitely check out this book (edited) 11mo
CouronneDhiver Sounds amazing 😊 Stacked! 11mo
dawn-pInk I‘ve meaning to read her letters. Did you have any favorites? 11mo
Linsy @dawn-pInk Not particularly. They kind of just use bits of them to open the sections and add color to the chapters. I would love to just read them straight through though! (edited) 11mo

Sadly I haven't met them. If I met Claire Foy or Jenna Coleman I would most likely bow haha

This book comes up under a different title than the copy I have. But I'm sure it's still full of #insightful things. #yesvember27

Victoria Letters | Helen Rappaport

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???

emilyesears Literally every source on the first 2 pages of google that mentioned the Princess Royal‘s birth time cites Queen Victoria‘s journal. Y‘all I know it‘s petty but this really bothers me!!! Editors are your friend!!!!! 2y

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.

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.
