"the raven" only its about macklemore. thanks for following my blog
once inside a thrift shop dreary, while i browsed there, weak and weary,
over many a quaint and curious greatcoat of forgotten bore—
while I nodded, puissance sapping, suddenly there came a yapping,

But I notice people seem in need of suggestions for what to read, in that case. As I’ve said before, my own bookshelves have been trending female for a long time now. So I have a fairly good handle on novels written by women in the last century or so, and if I were drawing you up a syllabus of what to read next by women, here are the top 50 books I would recommend. Since I could easily offer more than 50 suggestions, I tried to keep this manageable by sticking largely to fiction, with a few memoirs along the way. I also picked only one book per author, though in general I tried, where possible, to select a book you wouldn’t necessarily have encountered on a school syllabus.
Not like I need any more books on my to-read list or anything….
