Slightly Peckish Tuesday
29 January, 2013
Ooh, two posts in a day. Aren’t you the lucky ones?
Check out what I’ve been slurping for my complexion in Umami Mart: Slightly Peckish and don’t judge me.
In bookish news, I’m currently ensconced in Eowyn Ivey’s beautiful The Snow Child for my book group. I’m normally put off by a lot of hype but since reading Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall and Madeline Miller’s The Song of Achilles, I feel chastised and am prepared to believe.
And I’ll leave you with some interesting links from Twitter:
Kay Nielsen’s Stunning 1914 Scandinavian Fairy Tale Illustrations from Brain Pickings. We used to own a book of Swedish Folk Tales illustrated by John Bauer. So beautiful and enchanting.
Best Fictional Libraries in Pop Culture from Flavorwire
And have you seen The Lizzie Bennet Diaries? Thank you Simon T, Ana and Iris! It’s Pride and Prejudice‘s 200th birthday this week. My favourite adaptations are still the black and white film starring Lawrence Olivier and Greer Garson which I first saw when I was 14 and, of course, Colin Firth’s Darcy. Still swooning.
