The Arden of Faversham by Anonymous

I'd never heard of this play before seeing it on my reading list. Whilst I liked it, it still isn't my favourite. I've always had an issue fully enjoying plays. The only one I really like is Macbeth. I think it's partially to do with having to read all the stage directions and then if they're from around the Shakespeare era I need to check definitions of words…

King Lear by Shakespeare

The first of many uni book reviews to come! This term, for the most part, they're all plays which are different.

I very nearly didn't manage to get this box. I missed out on the first drop and didn't realise how few were available. Fortunately, whilst on holiday I managed to grab one in the second release. It took a look for furious tapping and praying that my wi-fi held up whilst out in Sicily. I'm so so glad it did. I adored this box. Everything was amazing! This…
