This week’s Thursday and Thrilled is brought to you by Period Dramas. Around this time of year (shortly after my birthday and right before fall really sets in), I get into this kick of watching copious amounts of literature inspired period dramas (or in some cases, webseries based on those pieces of literature). I’m not sure why, but the way they talk, the way they act just puts me in the most agreeable mood.
They’re always so romantic and sweet. I just can’t get enough of cuddling up with my cat (the husband won’t watch them without ensuring that I hear his “funny” commentary) and a cup of peppermint tea. So here are a few of my favorite period dramas* (and inspired by period drama) items this week!
*expect a lot of Jane Austen. #sorrynotsorry
Welcome to Thursday and Thrilled!
I’m going to attempt to make this a regular post on this blog. This will be a breakdown of things I’m currently thrilled with. It could be the book(s) I’m currently or going to be reading, or movies or TV shows I’m binging. Basically a breakdown of whatever I’m excited about at the moment!!
Reading: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Watching: The Office ` Season 6
Listening To: Tyler Hilton ` Indian Summer
As my first post of the new year, I’m going to talk about a web-series that has consumed my life. A few months ago I wrote about this new web-series I had discovered, Classic Alice.
Classic Alice is about a girl who receives a bad grade on an essay and decides to partner with her best friend to film a documentary. This documentary features Alice living her life according to classic literature in an effort to become a better writer. At first you think, there is no way this could possibly go any way but wrong. And you are correct. It can only go wrong, so terribly, adorably and horribly wrong. I fell in love with it and quickly clung to the characters as much as possible
