#atozchallenge. I went out of order but am SO glad I did. I'm not huge into Victorian-ish literature but this was beautiful and such a surprise.
Y'all, as someone raised in the lowcountry of Beaufort, SC, and intimately familiar with Savanah, this was like a trip back home. Berendt captured the lurid gossip and socialite mentality with its balanced sense of practicality well enough for me, and his picture of each character was perfectly imagined.
Where is March even gone?
For me, it was a whirlwind of preparation for the #AtoZChallenge on my blog. I drafted all my 26 posts for April. I'm once again blogging about the Twenties. This is the perfect year!
Sorry to say l wasn't as active as l would have liked in the Reading Ireland Month.

Just thought l'd mention yesterday the #AtoZChallenge has started... in case where l've disappeared to.
The challenge is to blog everyday day but Sundays following the letters of the alphabet. And l also have a theme: Berliner Cabaret. Hop onto my blog if you'd like to have a look 🤗
So l reveal the theme of my #AtoZChallenge for this year. I'm back to Weimar Germany, exploring 1920s cabaret more closely. I'm sure it will be a fantastic journey.
As per the challenge, l'll be posting one post a day on my blog for the entire month of April (except Sundays) following the letters of the alphabet.
