The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. You have to give the first book about 150 pages, but then they're like crack. (And each book is about 900 pages long.) Everyone I've recommended them to has gotten addicted.

The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. Spreads into a whole series.

Murder with Peacocks (and series) by Donna Andrews.

How did I not know that The Goose Girl was part of a series?! This is big news!

If you're into urban fantasy (think werewolves and vampires who have nice respectable professional day jobs) as well as strong female protagonists, try the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.

I haven't read them all, I pick them up in charity shops as they come along....but I have really enjoyed Sarah Paretsky's series of books about the female private investigator V.I Warshwaski. They are a series of detective stories, but V.I is a wonderful character and most of the tales take place against a gritty Chicago backdrop.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
