    Reader ½ Victoria ´ Hardcover VictoriaThank you to Headline Review and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book for me to reviewVictoria is a novelisation of ueen Victoria's ascension to the British throne in 1837 What you may or may not know however is that the author of this book is also the writer and creator of the ITV series also titled Victoria that coincides with it I actually watched season 1 of the show first before reading the novel so it's extremely difficult for me not to compare the two and to be honest I much prefer the show to the novel That's not to say it's a bad book b

I mean having to hold one's hand anytime you go down the stairs? Can we say paranoid much?
