Hey guys, we are gathered here today for a momentous occasion to check my friend Amy H. Johnson’s new book, The Fangirl Files, the hell out.

It’s hard out there for a fangirl, pimping the things we love.

Despite being smarter and sexier than the general population – I mean, this is a scientific fact because we basically feast on the souls of hot, shirtless men – fangirls are often maligned and misunderstood.

Yet watch My Mad Fat Diary series one along with me (it’s only six episodes long) and you’ll discover that this along with a multitude of other reasons make MMFD one of the best TV shows EVER. It filled the hole that Friday Night Lights left in me.

It is as rewatchable a show as I’ve ever come across. Regular readers of my blog know that I love to slice, dice and just generally dissect and overanalyze relationships from TV shows I adore.
