Cinders Galentine’s Celebration Package!

In Cinders we are all about celebrating our favourite gal pals and are in complete agreement with Leslie Knope that it is the best day of the year!

In order to share the love with all of you, our loyal readers, we’ve put together a package of the best the internet has to offer in free series, downloads and books to share with all of the best ladies in your life! Because we know that you want to share the love, bit might not always have the funds to do so!

Books, TV and movies

We are all for the enjoyment of a good book, and Galentine’s Day represents the perfect opportunity to enjoy some classics that you might not have gotten around to yet!

Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Northanger Abbey

We are massive Austen fans here in Cinders and love all of her works. Here we have the links to free downloads of three of our absolute favourites to enjoy with all of your Galentine’s girls!

Pride and Prejudice https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1342

Emma https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/158

Northanger Abbey https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/121

Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre

Where would we be without Brontë’s quintessential heroine? Re-live the experience with your favourite gal pals!

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein

If sci-fi is your thing then take a turn with the very first example of the genre! Frankenstein is dark and wonderful – you’ll enjoy every minute!

Poems by Christina Rossetti

If poetry and fantasy are your true loves then you will absolutely enjoy Christina Rossetti!

Of course, if you and your best ladies would rather sit down with an excellent TV show then you need look no further than some of the brilliant TV shows that YouTube has to offer!

The Lizzie Bennett Diaries

We love everything that Pemberly Digital has to offer but we’re particularly partial to the original series, with all of its drama, love and hilarious scenarios!

Shipwrecked Comedy’s Poe Party

If you love a good murder mystery and a healthy dose of laughter then this one is for you!

Some of us would rather just relax with an old movie – some of the great classics are now in the public domain and you can watch them online, guilt free! Here is one of our favourites:

His Girl Friday

Fast talking, fast moving, fast everything, His Girl Friday is a classic example of the back and forth that forties rom coms were famous for.

And of course, because today is also Pancake Tuesday, what better way to celebrate than to make one of these delicious recipes from the BBC!

Happy Galentine’s Day, everyone!

As editor of Cinders magazine books, television, comic books and the lack of representation for women in movies that I otherwise enjoy are most of what I talk about. Aside from reading I write, mostly about driving from Galway to Ennis. You can find more of my musings over on Twitter @redridinghood19. Check out Cinders magazine at www.cindersmagazine.com
