I am so thrilled that I managed to track down a cinema in the near vicinty that is actually showing the NTLive 'Encore' screening of Frankenstein by Danny Boyle. I've currently got a ticket for the screening with Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as the Creature and Jonny Lee Miller as Victor Frankenstien. I can't decide whether or not should get a ticket for two days later when they show the opposite pairing, as both actors alternated roles each night. I've read fantastic reviews for both actors in both roles...so I think I might just have to get the other ticket!!!!
I have been invited to a wedding in Cambridge at the end of May and I may finally get to wear a vintage inspired halterneck dress that I bought over a year ago but any dressy occasion that I could have worn it has been sabotaged by the blasted weather....so here's hoping.
Due to the weather, I've not been doing a lot and therefore haven't had a great deal to post about, but I have been reading vast quantities of books, both fact and fiction. A number of books have leapt out of the norm by being both well written and 'different'. The lastest one has been:
This is her third book, I didn't get into the second one but her first: A Company of Liars was amazing.
I've also been re-reading Alison Weir's phenomenal historical books and here are a few of the ones that I think are well worth a look:
I adore her books on Eleanor of Aquitaine; Isabelle, the She-Wolf of France and all her Tudor related ones.
If you get a chance...have a look.
