These are a few

…….. of my favorite things, of course!


All the Ugly and Wonderful Things- Bryn Greenwood

Circe- Madeline Miller

The Fault in Our Stars- John Green

Hyperbole and a Half- Allie Brosh

Long Bright River- Liz Moore

Moloka’i- Alan Brennert

To Kill a Mockingbird- Harper Lee

Movies and TV:

I will always be honest with you. I just watch Friends in all its problematic glory over and over and over and over and over…..


Ann Friedman Weekly

Not really a blog, more a weekly newsletter, but very worth it.

The Bloggess

I’m not even sure how to begin explaining how much I love Jenny Lawson and why, and whether or not it’s reasonable. I’m pretty sure she’s fine with it. I’m consider applying to be her Resident Nowhere Bookshop Cat.


Armchair Expert

Dax can drive me nuts, though he’s lovable- but let’s be real, I’m in it for Monica, KB cameos, and the awesome guests. I think he would appreciate the candor.

Inside Trader Joe’s

Remember I told you I’ll always be honest with you? This podcast is 100% advertisement. I am this podcast’s target audience. It works EVERY. $INGLE. TIME.


So much positivity, kind of a hug in podcast form for nerdy ladies.

The Pitch

So bingeable. Frequently has me cringing. Want Jillian Manus to be my BFF.

Pop Culture Happy Hour

Do I think the regulars have kind of become caricatures of themselves? Yes. Do I love them anyway? Sure.


Frequently has me in awe.

Reply All

Frequently has me in stitches.

This American Life

Frequently has me in tears- happy, rage, sad- all of the tear varietals.

Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!

Classic. Can Maeve Higgins also be my BFF? I think She and Jillian Manus and I could make quite the foursome along with Jenny Lawson.
