So I signed up for this last year, read one book that wasn’t even on my reading list, and then it all fell to pieces. However, I’m determined to have another punt at a subject I’m really interested in (and nearly studied after I left university). And it’s the same reading list as last time…

  • Duncan Grant: A Biography by Frances Spalding
  • The Underpainter by Jane Urquhart
  • Dante Gabriel Rossetti: Painter and Poet by Jan Marsh
  • Aubrey Beardsley: A Biography by Matthew Sturgis
  • William and Lucy: The Other Rossettis by Angela Thirlwell
  • The Holland Park Circle: Artists and Victorian Society by Caroline Dakers

Which puts me in the Fascinated category, so let’s see how that works out.

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence

If you would like to get in touch you can contact me at brideofthebookgod (at) btinternet (dot) com.
