So far adulthood is just going grocery shopping, realizing you didn’t plan well or logically, going grocery shopping again, repeat ad infinitum. 0/10 stars, would not recommend

This post is still getting hundreds of notes a day and I am going grocery shopping again.

SO MUCH WITH THE GROCERY SHOPPING.

I can’t even tell you guys how much I am into the Outlander opening credits sequence.

This episode is going to be so interesting to compare/contrast to S1’s “Dalek.”

Can’t wait for the gifsets.

September is ANCIENT ROME DRAMA BOMB MONTH

At least in my house.

So, nyrbclassics just published a new edition of Augustus by John Williams which I have heard nothing but good things about, and I am ecstatic to finally read.

Augustus is often mentioned in the same breath as Robert Graves’ Claudius books. Because of my ENDURING and PASSIONATE love for them (and the PBS mini-series they inspired - thanks for making us watch it in Latin class, Mrs. Hughes!) I have decided to re-read I, Claudius and Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina.

Any recommendations for other good historical fiction about Roman emperors?
