Television review: 24 Hours in the Past

In 24 Hours in the Past, six British celebrities go back to the 19th century to live the life of the Victorian working class. They will live and work at four different places: the dust yard, the coaching inn, the potteries and end up in the worst place of all: the workhouse!

Period Drama Challenge

Old-Fashioned Charm

Look at this: Miss Laurie from Old-Fashioned Charm is organizing a Period Drama Challenge again, like she did in 2013! The challenge is given to inspire people to review the period dramas they watch and I'm going to join. I'm choosing the level Period Drama Lover, which means I plan to review 8 productions between now and July 2nd.

I'm watching Poldark at the moment (and loving it so far!), when I finish that (and review ofcourse), I have some other period dramas on my TBW (to be watched) list:

Indian Summers (1930's, Channel 4)
Home Fires (WWII, BBC)
ANZAC girls (WWI, Australian production)
Passing Bells (WWI, BBC)
When Calls the Heart series 2 (1910s, Hallmark)

The red baron (WWI)
The Monuments Men (WWII)
Summer in February (Edwardian)
Red Tails (WWII)
Brooklyn (1950s)
Belle (Georgian)

What do you think of my list? Are there any you've already seen and you would suggest me to watch ASAP? Do you have other suggestions?

Maybe some of you would like to join as well? Then click the banner, which will bring you to Miss Laurie's blog!

End of the Year - Book Survey

Here we are again with the annual End Of Year Book Survey, hosted by The Perpetual Page Turner. I had a lot of fun looking back at my reading in 2015 and answering these questions. I hope you enjoy reading about it and let me know your thoughts if you've also read some of the books I mention here!


Number Of Books You Read: 59. A little less than last year, when I read 66 books, but considering how busy I've been, I'm quite satisfied!
Number of Re-Reads: Only 1,5/2 (I reread Lady Susan and The Watsons by Jane Austen, but they are both so short, I wonder if you can call it 2)
Genre You Read The Most From: Historical fiction/historical romance

A bit late maybe, but I've been busy 'holidaying'! Still, here are my thoughts on the Christmas specials this year!
