Bottom Shelf Reviews: Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman

I am kind of ashamed that this  book has sat on my shelf long enough that it qualifies as a Bottom Shelf review. I bought it the day it came out with every intention of reading it immediately, yet somehow a year has passed and I'm just now getting it read.

In honor of the premiere of one of my favorite television… Continue reading “But You’re Just a Girl” : Television and the ‘Strong Female Lead’ Pt. 1
