Bride of the Book God

The Last Days of Glory by Tony Rennell gives us a detailed insight into events around the death of Queen Victoria, from Christmas 1900 until her magnificent funeral six weeks later.

It’s a book that’s been on my shelves for a long time; I spotted it in a bookshop just after it came out which is why I have this rather handsome little hardback copy. I’m slightly astonished (and also a bit ashamed) to say that means this has been in the stacks for close to twelve years. But it is one of those books which needs to be read at exactly the right time because of its level of detail. I can’t even remember why I picked it up when I did but I was soon absorbed and read it over a weekend.

I studied history at university and the past has always been of great interest to me…

My Voyage Through Time

Today I read a post about The Fool card in Tarot. One of my favorite gals- Lily Wight of The Arcade of Arts & Arcanaposted Tarot art – The Foolon May 9, 2012.

At any given time I could be described as all of thee above. Since I take pride in wisdom, how is it that all of thee above can possibly describe me? I am at a loss for words it seems. I guess that…

Pretty Bones Jefferson

I just made a new treasury list of lovely things that are for sale from different shops on Etsy. This time it’s about Claudia from Interview with the Vampire, the child vampire with the angelic face and many pretty things.

I was reading the book in February when I was writing my college thesis under great pressure (on another topic), having found the book on Monsieur JEG‘s shelf.  I just finished reading the third book in the series yesterday, skipping the second because it hasn’t come my way; which I obtained through an encounter with BookCrossing on Sunday as I mentioned in the blog post earlier this week, and which brought back to my mind Claudia.

I can’t say about the second book in the series as I haven’t read it, but compared to the third, I think the first in the series, Interview with the Vampire, will…
