It is common knowledge that an important part of being a geek girl is obsessing over the things you love. This is what I’m obsessing over this week!
Reading// Guys. Last week a dream ten years in the making came true; I met Libba Bray, author of YA fantasy awesomeness A Great and Terrible Beauty (and its sequels). She was the absolute coolest, taking the time to have full-blown conversations with her fans and of course, initiating selfies. While at the festival, I picked up Lair of Dreams, the second book in her Diviners series, a perfect combination of the supernatural, history, and teen melodrama. I’ve only just started, but it feels good to be back in Evie’s fast-paced, Jazz Age New York City
Watching// Speaking of the Roaring 20s, did you know that Season 3 of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries is now on Netflix? If you’re not familiar with this gem, Miss Fisher follows a kickass, sexually liberated lady detective in 1920s Australia, who just happens to be middle-aged, but one hot ticket! This show has sooo many great things going for it, and when the third season came out, I binged it right away. I won’t give much away, but let’s just say it’s a good season for Phryne x Jack shippers.
Listening// JK Rowling is a goddess, and you can hear her magical words talking into your ear holes in her latest sets of interviews with NPR. The conversation focuses mainly on the latest Robert Galbraith book, which unfortunately I haven’t read yet, but even so, just listening to her writing and research project, and motivation behind mystery writing is magical! You can find them here, here, and here.
Wanting// Truthfully, I want ALL THE THINGS! But in particular, I love this shirt. It’s speaking to my life right now.
Thanks for fangirling with me!
