A delightful lady, Johanna Walsh, has made bookmarks celebrating women writers. She has unofficially declared 2014 the Year of Reading Women.

As a bibliophile, I feel like it’s my duty to join in. Women who I think you should read?

Jane Austen, Jennifer Cruise, J.K. Rowling (don’t judge me putting all the J names together) Agatha Christie, Tamora Pierce, Shannon Hale, Hiromu Arakawa, Janet Evanovich, Rhys Bowen, Cecelia Ahern, Meg Cabot, Louisa May Alcott, Laura Ignalls Wilder, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and Cornelia Funke  

As a bonus: books with complex, well-written female protagonists (written by guys): The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer

(sidenote: this would be so much easier if I could go to the library)

Moffat… I just… there are no words.

So, just finished watching Sherlock season 3.

Don’t worry, there are no spoilers here. Other than: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHHHHHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

That is the extent of my feelings. I had intended my first official blog post to be an intelligent treatise on use of place in How I Met Your Mother and Hart of Dixie, but instead, I got distracted, and here we are. Thank you, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. I really needed that mindf***. NO NOT REALLY.

Anywho, that’s me signing off. Season 3 comes out officially in the US during normal people hours today. That should be interesting.
