Painting by Carel Fabritius THE GOLDFINCH I didn't think I liked this book at first but it's the type of story that stays with you, that you think about long after you've finished it and it haunts you until you come to realize what an amazing story it really is. It revolves around this stolen painting. Poor little bird. Tethered to its perch.
the goldfinch the basis of the story by donna tartt (which, I'll confess, I gave up after 100 pages). This is the painting by Carel Fabritius in 1654. Oil on panel. 13.25x9 inches. A student of Vermeer.
Carel Fabritius-1622-1654 The Goldfinch 1654. One of my favourite paintings - it is at the centre of the new Donna Tartt book - The Goldfinch.

Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings, #1) Great fairy tale YA. I enjoyed this, but it took a while for me to get into, I disliked Scarlet, but I liked Rosie. The prologue was my favorite part.

Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings, #1) by Jackson Pearce: I've pretty much loved everything I've read by Jackson Pearce, but this one is particularly great because it focuses on two sisters who go armed with red cloaks and hatchets to hunt the Fenris (werewolves). It's YA, so there is nothing too grisly, but there is plenty of action, and I have to say that I love a strong Red Riding Hood who refuses to be a victim.

The Life of a Mystic

From the Medieval Manuscripts blog post 'The Life of a Mystic'. Image: Opening page of the Book of Margery Kempe, Add MS 61823, England (East Anglia), c. 1440
Perhaps the first autobiography ever written in English, this book contains the life story of the female mystic, Margery Kempe, who lived from c. 1373 to c. 1440. It survives in only one known manuscript, written at about the time of her death, owned by the Butler Bowden family. When Colonel W. Butler Bowden was looking for a bat in a cupboard he came across a pile of old books, and threatened to put the whole lot on the bonfire. A friend advised him to have them checked by an expert and Hope Emily Allen identified one as the ‘Book of Margery Kempe’, previously known only from excerpts printed by Wynkyn de Worde in 1501, and by Henry Pepwell in 1521 (where the author is described as ‘a devoute ancres’). A true miracle!
