let them eat cake

Last night I couldn't fall asleep, so I randomly picked Marie Antoinette by Antonia Fraser from my bookshelf--where it's been sitting unread for the past three years after buying it when the movie came out in 2006. It's a lengthy biography, but I'm glad to finally have started it and am excited to keep reading--I love anything historical.

Starting the book makes me want to watch the movie again. I love the film and sometimes feel the urge to watch it just to indulge in the lavish colors, costumes and historical setting of the story.
