Reading material for my trip to Disneyland Paris!
Interesting to see how surrounding myself with the language helps and makes my trip even more fun!
I'm so excited.
I want to get a picture with Alice reading it

First fictional read and I really enjoyed it!
I love the Rapunzel story and movie and this was a fun read.
It answered one question I had from the movie "how did she get Pascal?"

Apart from travelling the goal I want to achieve next year is my languages, even if its just "hello and goodbye" I want to see if I can understand and translate.
I love the feeling when I get the chance and I'm going to take it!

Last read of the year!
Didn't enjoy it as much as I would like.
Not into fashion but I liked her "experiences" on Paris and mentioned some nice little places to go and see when I go next year
Still fun!

Ich bin Anne of Cleves ?
Nice one seating biography about Anne of Cleves.
Informative and enjoyable although the author liked to use "in spite of"

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I can‘t say I know much about Anne of Cleves but her songs in Six the musical were my favourite. 2mo
BookishRedhead @thegirlwiththelibrarybag i didn't till SIX tbh and her song is my favourite with Anne Boelyn close second 2mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @BookishRedhead, six the musical went so much harder than I was expecting - such a sensational show! Loved how each queen was modelled after pop singers (Anne Boleyn singing style was modelled on Lily Allen & Avril Lavigne ; Anne of Cleves on Nicki Minaj & Rihanna) 2mo

BookishRedhead @thegirlwiththelibrarybag yes! I went to see it a few months ago (first time alone in London) and I had high hopes but wow the whole show was amazing and would definitely see it again in a heartbeat 2mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @BookishRedhead, I was so glad that it reopened in Melbourne this year. One of the saddest parts of the 2020 lockdowns was watching all my theatre and comedy show refunds come through 🥺 2mo
BookishRedhead @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I was lucky that my only show was the David Bowie tribute 2mo

Ever since I started learning Korean, I've wanted to make a quote book of Disney quotes in Korean but since I discovered Weeve and the Weave method (foreign words weaved into English) I've found it better and more fun to not write the full quote in Korean.
I'm so excited to start this little project that I've been waiting to do for 9 years.
Starting with the princesses in order than move onto other classic Disney films.

He puts joy and passion into his life as well as his friends, family and band mates.

YAY I FOUND IT!
This was one of the reasons that I got into the paranormal, I remember believing most of the book and sad when i found out it was a hoax.
Going to enjoy rereading it after all these years

I go to Canterbury a lot (also went to college there) and I knew it was haunted but not as haunted as the buildings I've walked past or went in.
Definitely seeing them in a new light and will be looking more into them.
The buildings are beautiful and give Canterbury bit more of a personality

Diana Ross has a heart of absolute gold and joy.
She writes with such power and she takes in every moment and treasures them.
I've never really been a big fan of hers but I will now listen to her voice a lot more.
She's a beaut.

When I was young I was almost obsessed with researching the paranormal.
I have always been open minded about everything but I remember I went to a one of my local pubs and experienced some ghostly stuff.
I've always flipped through these Caught on Film books and now that I've redecorated my library my books have reserved.
I've always been kinda skeptical about UFOs but love a good ghost picture or video.
