Hobbies

I enjoy reading and listening to women's history podcasts! My reading interests include the classics, such as Jane Austen's novels, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Vanity Fair, Madame Bovary, The Portrait of a Lady, Rebecca, Middlemarch, North and South, Germinal, and Pere Goriot. As well, I enjoy reading the Harry Potter series. The podcasts I listen to regularly are Deviant Women, The History Chicks, What's Her Name, The Exploress, and Encyclopedia Wommanica, all of which explore incredible women throughout history. I also enjoy spending time with my cats and dog. My favourite t.v. show is Gilmore Girls.
