Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire by Amanda Foreman
Georgiana: Duchess ofDevonshire, while pure historical, it quite an interesting read. Many of you may know the famous Duchess from the move that premiered a few years ago and was nominated various awards; however, this biography gives you a true inside look into her life. The cover portrays Georgiana as beautiful, elegant, and implies that she is content with her life. However, as you will find as you read deeper, her life was everything but. This book is the sad and true tale of a lonely housewife in an unhappy marriage, something many women today can relate too.
If you often read fiction and love a good story, I do not recommend this book. While her life is rather remarkable to read about, it is still a biography and follows that pattern. If you’re in school, here’s a great tip: for a refreshing and vibrant essay, compare the factual biography of Georgiana to the fictional works of Jane Austen to find the similarities in unhappy households. Another essay idea could be to compare Georgiana’s life to modern women’s’ lives. Overall, Foreman does a fantastic job recoding and describing Georgiana’s life.

Hello! This is currently a blog in progress. As of right now, we’re a collection of queued posts and to-be-written reviews, but in the future, we hope to be an active blog. The goal of this is to review books, and sometimes teas and coffees, and to post and reblog pictures of the three.
Under the pseudonym’s Koala and Tea, we intend to read, drink, and review. I’m Koala, she’s Tea. I like tea, she likes coffee (and also, tea), and we both like reading.
