  4. Yes, Mantel!! Brilliant writer. Can't wait for her final book in the Cromwell trilogy. She did such a great job of getting inside his head. :)

    1. Fingers crossed they do her justice in the series :) Although, I'm a bit reserved since it is not for BBC One but Two... I don't know what that means in terms of their ambition and budget :(

  6. Damian Lewis is a good reason to see Wolf Hall. And Shailene Woodley is a good reason NOT to see The Fault In Our Stars :)
    Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Nope, we shall have polar winds sweeping around my part of Central Europe all weekend. Two international trains got stuck in the snow here today and they also saved around thousand people from the roads.... And it isn't even snowing... it's the extreme wind that carries around the one which fell last week.

  10. Damian Lewis would make a great Henry VIII -- just that right mixture of charm, deadly menace and unstable craziness.
