I was born during the run of Happy Days and its spinoff Laverne and Shirley. I remember, as a young child, watching the reruns of these popular shows and while Happy Days was a fun show, I adored the depiction of the two working – class women in Laverne and Shirley—even in their animated tv show! I loved my coloring book featuring the two. I jumped at the chance to read Shirley I Jest: A Storied Life when I saw it on Netgalley.
Both my husband and I are fans of the BBC series, Sherlock. Unfortunately, we are both not as familiar with the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson.
Enter the BBC’s line of books released for the show. Granted, they are reprints of the original tales by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle—this affords the both of us the opportunity to read the original books that spawned the fandom.

As a Whovian, I have a responsibility to read anything and everything about the Doctor I can get my hands onto, especially since I live in America, and we may have to wait for months to get our ‘fix’ of the doctor. The Doctor is almost always portrayed as the good guy, which I completely believe. However, it is nice to see the opposite side of things—James Goss shows us this side of the Doctor in Doctor Who: The Blood Cell.
